Did you know that cotton candy was co-invented by a dentist? Machine-spun cotton candy was invented in 1897 by a dentist named William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton. They originally introduced it as, "Fairy Floss" before the name later changed to what we know today as cotton candy. While it's okay to enjoy this sweet treat, remember it's still "spun sugar" so moderation is key and remember to brush and floss after you indulge!
