I was telling a friend about pashmak, or Persian cotton candy, and you should’ve seen his face when I said it was like eating cat fur.
Well it is. This fairy floss, made of spun sugar, looks like it belongs to a Persian kitty. Although, once you pull out tufts of it, it starts to look more like cotton candy.
But it tastes much better. Instead of dissolving into one-note sugariness, the pink pashmak from Jones The Grocer evaporates on the tongue, leaving the scent of roses behind. The pale green pistachio flavoured one is more subtle.
Eat them out of the bag or pull out tufts of them to decorate desserts. But whatever you do, reseal very tightly after opening because like regular cotton candy, they wilt in humidity.
Cost is S$18.50 for a 200g bag.
