I was talking with Monique from France today and she mentioned that cotton candy in French is called la barbe à papa – Daddy’s beard. I love this image!
In England, it’s called Candyfloss.
In Australia, it’s fairy floss (how cool is that?!)
In Spain, it’s algodón de azúcar, meaning sugared cotton.
In Italy, zucchero filato, meaning spun sugar which is really what it is.
Please share your phrase for cotton candy in the comments below with an English translation.
