Peanuts, Popcorn, (Maple and Honey) Cotton Candy

State Fair Food Classics: MacLleod Farms' Maple Syrup Cotton Candy | Big Bite | Independent Weekly:

MacLeod’s uses pure maple syrup, which it makes each spring on its farm in Barre, Vermont. That process, explains Martin Broggini, whose father-in-law, Leslie MacLeod, started the family’s farm in 1960, takes place between February and the end of April. After that, Broggini says, it’s fair time. The MacLeod’s travel from Vermont to the North Carolina Mountain State Fair in Fletcher each September, followed by October’s Dixie Classic Fair in Winston Salem and the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh.
We tried the Maple Cotton Candy from the booth pictured above. I can't believe I've never had it before. It really is good. So, too, was the honey cotton candy we tried in building with the art exhibits.
