Transcript of William Morrison and John C. Wharton, Creators Of Cotton Candy

Cotten Candy(: The original cotton candy machiene was built in 1897 The creators were William Morrison and John C. Wharton, candymakers from Nashville, Tennessee. This device heats sugar in a spinning bowl that has tiny holes in it. As the bowl spins the caramalized sugar is forced through the tiny holes making soft, feathery candy that melts in your mouth. Coton candy is a sweet dish that looks like a fluffy mass of cotton. It is just finely-granulated sugar that is heated and spun into slim threads. What seems like a large serving of cotton candy is actually a small portion of sugar and a larger portion of air. Cotton candy was introduced to the world at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904. They sold about 68,655 boxes, each at 25 cents. Which was a significant amount of money for that time. The term "cotton candy" wasnt used until about the 1920s in th USA. In other places it was referred to as:
Candy Floss (Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa)
Fairy Floss (Australia)
Buddhi ka Baal (India)
maai da jhata (India)
Lachha (Pakistan) The United States celebrates national cotton candy day on December 7th every year. Iced Tea was also introduced at this fair. The very few changes of the invention now is that there are different flavors and color like bubble gum, grape, strawberry, banana and blue raspberry, ect.
