A TASTE OF PINK

A tropical citrus fruit, named because it grows in grapelike clusters, Pink grapefruit is a cross between a sweet orange and a pummelo. It came to Florida from the Bahamas in 1823. There are two main varieties: seeded and seedless. They are also split into color classifications: white (yellowish-white flesh) and pink (flesh ranges from pale yellow-pink to bright, ruby red). Pink grapefruit has a higher amount of vitamin A. The skins of all varieties are yellow, though some have a pink blush.

Cotton candy was invented in 1897 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton, candy makers from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. They invented a device that heated sugar in a spinning bowl that had tiny holes in it. It formed a treat that they originally called “Fairy Floss.” As the bowl spun around, the caramelized sugar was forced through the tiny holes, making feathery candy that melts in the mouth.
