Watch the Creation of a Giant Cotton Candy Flower
If you get sticky eating regular-sized cotton candy, you might want to avoid these over-sized options. In China, certain stands offer multi-colored cotton candy treats that can be bigger than your head—or multiple people's heads. The fancy snacks are usually shaped like flowers, but as you can see on the sign in the video, they can also resemble a saucer or rabbit. Using a wooden stick and a lot of twirling, the candy artisans can shape the floss into whatever they want. Surprisingly, these intricate creations only cost 10 Chinese yuan (US$1.60).
