Did you know that the inventor of cotton candy was a dentist?
This fluffy cloud of airy spun sugar was first invented by Dr. William Morrison and Tennessee candy maker, John Wharton. It was premiered at the 1908 World’s Fair and cost 25 cents.
Luckily, this sweet confection is not as bad for our teeth as one would expect, as the sugary strings are mostly air. It is still important to brush your teeth or rinse your mouth with water after indulging on this sweet treat.
Happy National Cotton Candy Day (December 7th).
