Cotton Candy Was Invented By Whom?
Answer: A Dentist
As if it wasn’t ironic enough that a dentist invented a treat made of spun sugar and air, it was invented independently by two different dentists–in what we have to believe was a plot to increase business.
There is a traditional treat called, in many parts of the world, Dragon’s Beard, made by hand pulling and stretching sugar until it becomes fine like spider silk. Historically it was very labor intensive and inaccessible to most consumers. In 1897 a dentist by the name of William Morrison worked with confection by the name of John C. Wharton to refine and semi-automate the process of crafting Dragon’s Beard. They sold the machine-spun sugar under the name “Fairy Floss” at the 1904 moving over 68,000 boxes of it. Nearly two decades later another dentist, Joseph Lascaux, invented a similar machine which also spun sugar into a fine fluff. He called it cotton candy, a name that has stuck ever since.
