Our unnatural fear of clowns, carnies and carbs often keeps us from enjoying the finer things in life. Tilt-a-whirls. Fried pizza. Circus porn.
But the one carnival classic we miss more than anything else is cotton candy.
Thankfully, we can now get a gourmet version with FluffPop, a new company bringing sugary fabulousness to swank events all over town or at your very own soirée.
Choose from guava, lychee, sparkling strawberry and cappuccino. Sugar-free options include peppermint, lemon, orange and pineapple. Or stick something organic down your throat in cherry or pomegranate.
Ravers will enjoy FluffPop on glowsticks (above), topped with edible glitter or even an in-development glow-in-the-dark cotton candy. Or feed your inner child by getting them sprinkled with Pop-rocks.
Best of all, they can turn practically any piece of hard candy into a FluffPop.
As for us, we want to see what they can spin together with a bottle of Xanax and watermelon Jolly Ranchers.
Perfect for eating before that next trip to the state fair.
