Eggnog isn’t the only festive cotton candy coming to the Trail of Lights this year

A local cotton candy company is bringing a taste of the holidays to the Trail of Lights this year.

Fancy Fluff, a relatively new Austin company that is usually only available for private events, has developed a line of seasonal flavors to sell at the upcoming Trail of Lights, which kicks off on Friday with a preview night and then is open to the public until Dec. 23.

In addition to eggnog cotton candy, Fancy Fluff is selling organic spun sugar that tastes like gingerbread, apple cider, candy cane, sugar plum and pumpkin pie.

I tried all six of them in my Facebook livestream this week and was impressed with both the light and airy texture of the cotton candy and the intensity of the flavors. Some of my colleagues thought they were too intense, but for $3 and $5 for small and large sizes, it’s not too expensive to try one for yourself.

Owner Jessica Morrow Halich has more than 50 gourmet cotton candy flavors available, including mango-chile-lime, chai tea, toasted coconut, watermelon-cucumber and cardamon-pear.
