Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Cotton candy was always one of my favorite treats as a kid. My parents would always splurge and buy me the big bag at the state fair (pink and blue), and I would eat it until I was sick.
One Christmas, I asked for a cotton candy machine from Santa. My mother tried her best to talk me out of it saying that my older sister had one and it never worked right. Well, Christmas morning, there was my brand new cotton candy machine under the tree. I was so excited! I think I made cotton candy every day and even tried to sell it to friends and family.
Now, 20 or so years later, I still have that machine. Just a couple months ago, I got a phone call from my mother who put my 4 year old nephew on the phone. After some hesitation, he asked me if I still had my cotton candy machine. I told him that I did and that I would bring it over as soon as I dug it out of the closet.
What a joy it was to spend a couple hours with my nephew and niece making cotton candy and sharing memories. I don't think I'll ever get rid of that machine, I still love cotton candy to this day. ~ Katherine from Virginia
