Since the beginning of time people have been using the phrase "since the beginning of time" to make what they say sound more important.

More importantly, we need a new class of candy.

Cotton Candy is good. But it only comes it Blue and Red. And it wrinkles. And it sticks. And it doesn't last very long in my fridge. Polyester, however, has some benefits over cotton (though I'm not sure what, but hey.. they wouldn't have invented it if there weren't.. right ?)

Polyester candy may not stick as much to your fingers or chin. Polyester candy may be more robust for your rollercoaster ride. Polyester candy can be made into scotch patterns for schoolgirls and rainbow patterns for clowns.

Polyester... the candy of the 21st century.

       How is it made?

       I'm guessing it's sugar free, or maybe some sorbitol/mannitol thingy. And it'll look really slick... like shredded fruit roll-ups or something.

       [lurch] EXCELLENT IDEA ! Croissant reserved for you ! If cotton candy is made from natural gum, then Polyester Candy MUST be made from artificial sweetener!   

       [jutta] Watapachi is gum. This is Polyester Candy !
