Today I ate passion fruit-flavored cotton candy. Sounds too good to be true? Yes, in fact it didn't taste like passion fruit at all. I chose my flavor carefully. I could have had vanilla, banana, mint, of all things--no,I wanted passion. However, the first eagerly-anticipated billowy bite of "dad's beard" (the fluffy pink stuff in French: barbe a papa) tasted disappointingly like regular old cotton candy. Oh French county fairs, why do you tempt me like that?
