Still Seeking Submissions


We have received a few excellent entries for the Carnival, but are still looking for more submissions of what was great and/or really caught your attention this week. It is too late to submit early, but not too late to submit often. You have until this Sunday (May 22nd) at 6 pm to get your entries to us here at the Library Garden. Please send your submissions to janieh [at] gmail dot com for edition #38 of the Carnival of the Infosciences .

On an slightly related note, whenever I think of Carnivals I think of consuming sugar that has been spun into a sticky mess of melt-on-your-tongue goodness on stick. My husband and I have an ongoing debate about what this item is called. I have placed a photo to the left as a visual cue. Please help us settle this one and for all! What do you call it? I say it is Candy Floss and he claims it is Cotton Candy.

Must be a regionalism. Around here, it's cotton candy.

I spent 2 summers spinning it in an amusement park in Massachusetts. We called it Cotton Candy

Not a single person to yet chime in and help me win my argument. It is a regionalism, I am from Canada and that is what we called it growing up. Then again, I also call macaroni and cheese Kraft Dinner. I just thought that perhaps there was someplace here in the USA where it was also known as candy floss.

Sorry, but as a born expert of all things candy, I must proclaim it cotton candy.

I was tormented so many times growing up by being called cotton candy, but never candy floss.

Candy floss is the British version...I grew up in the US with cotten candy, now live in Australia where it's candy floss..I spent a year near Halifax, NS but don't recall hearing any reference to it at all. (I might have been too busy shivering :) )

Yes, it's candy floss in Australia. We do sometimes see cotton candy as well, though.

Hi, I posted about the term in Australia before. I just realised a more common name I hear around here: fairy floss

I knew candy floss didn't quite sound right...
