I had adult cotton candy at dinner tonight. What made it adult?
The maple flavoring.
Maple cotton candy is on the dessert menu at Towne Boston. It has the same consistency as any other cotton candy you have ever eaten — and looks a bit like attic insulation — but the maple flavor is so much better than anything a vendor ever tossed at me at the bottom of the eighth.
That doesn’t mean we didn’t play with it. It was awfully fun to shape the wispy treat into little pads of sugar. I even dropped it into my hot tea, just to see how fast it would dissolve.
Answer: really fast.
