Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cotton Candy Day

Cotton candy first made its appearance in the early 1900s, and oddly enough, the spun sugar treat was invented by a dentist, William Morrison, and a confectioner, John C. Wharton.

The two marketed their creation as "fairy floss" at the 1904 World's Fair. It was later renamed cotton candy in the 1920s.

Cotton candy has different names around the world. In England, it's called candy floss. In Australia and Finland, it's called fairy floss. In the Netherlands, it's known as suikerspin, which means “sugar spider.” And our favorite name is the French, where it's called barbe à papa, which mean papa's beard.
