Disneyland Just Released A Controversial New Halloween-Themed Treat

It’s probably a good thing that Halloween only comes once a year because it brings out one of the most controversial sweets out there. We’re talking about the American treat candy corn. Regardless of how you feel about those waxy, triangular kernels of sugar, without fail, they pop up on all over the place in October. This year, though, Disneyland has doubled-down on the candy's controversial nature by combining it with another treat whose taste is hotly debated. All month long, leading up to Halloween, Disneyland is selling Candy Corn Cotton Candy.
A Disney fan account on Instagram recently posted a photo of the new Candy Corn Cotton Candy and, for anyone who loves both these ultra sugary treats, the fluffy layers of yellow, orange, and white spun sugar are absolutely mouth-watering.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which camp you fall into), this cotton candy doesn't borrow flavours from candy corn. In the photo's caption, the poster explains, "CANDY Corn: You either love it or hate it. This cotton candy doesn't taste like candy corn but it sure does want to look like it." Since candy corn and cotton candy both already taste pretty much like straight sugar, that's a little confusing. However, anyone who is totally turned off by the waxy texture of candy corn may find this spun sugar version of the treat is probably a lot more appealing.
According to the Instagram, the quadruple C snack is available throughout both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, and the official Disney Parks Blog confirms that information. Other Instagram photos tagged with the hashtag #candycorncottoncandy show the treat in several different areas of both parks, and some even show off the cutesy, creepy bag the cotton candy comes in. Together the cobweb-clad bag and the colourful cotton candy inside make for the ultimate Disney Halloween Instagram post, so even those who are usually uninterested in both treats might not be able to resist.
