I just love eating these cotton candies.. Well.. I am not aware whether it could harm anyone's health or not... But I just love eating them...

Once we had been to a fair. I was feeling shy to get this cotton candy and eat, but I could not resist it too.. So I went on starring at it. Believe it or not... my husband, sister-in-law, her husband - each one of them bought it for me... and they loved watching me eating it like a small kid (he he he he). Of course, that became one of the lovely and memorable moments in my life. (They all still keep pulling my legs whenever we set to go out together.. that is a different part of story too).

Now I came across the fact that this favourite eatable of mine has different names in each part of the world.. which I was not aware of it till then.. I though I would share it with you all.

Here we go..

Fairy floss is the name given to it by John Water and Willaim Morrison.

Birthday Balloon - this is how the school children call it.. :)

Magic Rose - is the name given by the candy men.

Pappa's beard - this is how it is been called by the French.

Candy Floss - this is how the American's call it

Sugar Wool - the German's have named it so.
