Turkish Cotton Candy At Pars Market
Since then, I have bought her cotton candy whenever it appears. The most-recent was pismantye -- which Pars Market in Columbia calls "Turkish cotton candy" even though it isn't officially.
Pismantye is flour and butter mixed into pulled sugar. Pars sells boxes with about a dozen pieces for less than $2. It's fluffy threads of candy that melt in your mouth. Threads, more than cotton balls. And it tastes nutty and slightly sweet rather than the sugary, fruity flavor of the candy that you'd get at a carnival. It's definitely worth checking out -- especially if you pick up the rose water and pistachio nougat that Pars stocks on the same shelf.
