    Cotton Candy Making at Ciqikou, Chongqing, China

    Cotton candy was always a treat that we got at the local & state fairs when I was growing up but it's not something that appeals to me now. I remember it as sickeningly sweet even then but I ate it anyway!

    I enjoyed watching this street vendor create a flower shape and I can imagine children in particular would be thrilled at that added touch to this sticky treat!

    Now that was cool!. I always wonder how peoples minds work that they could come up with an idea like that.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    I know what you mean!

    Plus they make it look so easy! I know they've done it so often that they have it down pat but if I tried to make it, it would look like the pictures I've seen of spider webs spun by spiders on LSD.

    Our Cotton Candy was never a art.

    We were mesmerized waiting for our cotton candy

    Now kids sit on the father's shoulders eating Cotton Candy and it ends up in my

    hair.

    WOW

    I imagine people making cotton candy hours at a time notice they can do things with it.

    Then comes along the artist, a person with talent, imagination.

    Got me curious.
    Cotton candy a new art form?

    I can't vouch for how much money it brings in but it sure looks like more fun than the average office desk job!
