Before we get into the history, let's start with the question most of us have wondered since we were children: how is this stuff actually made? Cotton candy is produced by a special spinning machine. The sugar is added to the head, where a heater melts it into syrup. At the same time that this is happening, the spinning motion of the machine (turning at roughly 3,400 revolutions per minute) whips the syrup through tiny little holes that are perforated across the bowl. This motion cools the syrup instantaneously and fluffs it with air, creating long, extremely thin strands. Cotton candy gets its unique texture from the fact that the sugar cools so rapidly that the particles cannot fully recrystallize.The FamiLane Collection’s premium T-shirt should be a big part of any kids’ wardrobe.
