Youreyes are not deceiving you — this really is cinnamon-flavored cotton candy.

Youreyes are not deceiving you — this really is cinnamon-flavored cotton candy. I found it at Harvest Foods grocery in Quincy, WA.Unlike those chewy tastebud piercing spicy bullets the Hot Tamales brand is known for, this candy has a very, very subtle cinnamon taste. It really is like eating a bag of regular cotton candy spiked with some artificial flavoring. And maybe it’s because I haven’t had cotton candy in a while, but this version doesn’t seem to taste as sweet as the traditional ballpark/fairground kind. It even has the unwelcome addition of a lingering floral flavor. If you really want to try this stuff and can’t find it in your local supermarket, you can find it online. While you’re at it, order some paper handles to attach to it. Cotton candy always tastes better when you can eat it like an ice cream cone.
