Cotton candy is so sweet and yummy that we’ve always happily eaten it without paying any attention to the fact that it usually looks like the end of a giant cotton swab. That has all changed since we first watched this hypnotic video in which a skilled street vendor in Ciqikou, Chongqing, China creates servings of spun sugar that look like enormous, colourful flowers.

Great big, fluffy flowers of sugary awesomeness.
