The Bexley Chocolatier is Ready to Take Your Order

Almost everyone has had that moment — your co-worker brings in something home-made that floors you and you insist he/she must go into business right away. Or, conversely, you’re the cook over whom everyone’s gushing. Either way, these are usually moments of jest, repeated with a certain amount of regularity, so it’s almost a routine between friends.

Joy’s Fairy Floss Brings Gourmet Cotton Candy to Columbus
Published on June 9, 2013 12:55 pm
By: Ayana Wilson
If you’ve never heard the phrase “fairy floss”, don’t be alarmed. It’s a term from the 1904 World’s Fair coined by dentist William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton, inventors of fairy floss. A 1921 patent by a rival introduced the term “cotton candy”, and to this day, it’s how the majority of us refer to the spun sugar treat.
