Logan Paglinawan : How did he do that? My strands are so uneven! And they keep snapping!

IHaveNoIdeaWhyGoogleLetsYourNameBeThisLongWaitItGetsLongerSeriouslyWhyAreYouStillReadingThis : That's candy floss though.

testing2488 : Usually there will also be a filling, usually nuts, and if done right, when eaten, you'll have little puffs of cornstarch coming out

I HAVE GAY OSTEO DEPPRESION SYNDROME : So you basically just told us how to eat sugar after a ton of work

travbrack : This guy knows his powers of 2!

Jocowa1999 : Is this Nick Crompton? Is England his city?

Scrotumicus : Is there anything that can be used in the place of corn syrup and corn starch? Not a big fan of corn products, and would love more natural substitutes. Perhaps Blue Agave nectar or ample syrup in place of the corn syrup, and powdered sugar in place of the corn starch? Thanks for any help :)

Mily Alvarez : Uhmm...they never show the actual streching....after the fold they show the candy already streched and bigger...

Ione Shaver : You made that look wwaayy too easy. I can almost guarantee that if I tried this it would go horribly wrong and I would end up injured or with a giant hard lump of sugar. Possibly both lol.

Akın Yurteri : pişmaniye is better. Haters gonna hate.

PunaniJohnny : thats cool but way too much work just for cotton candy

spaaggetii : Nothing so ancient as a gas stove, stainless steel pots and bleached white sugar to boot. Won't mention the ancient corn syrup

tigergreg8 : I have a couple thngs I'd like to know, First, do you have to use the food coloring,? I'd prefer not to use it. Second, Can you use powdered sugar instead of Corn Starch? Seems like all that Corn Starch would take away from the taste.

Kyithios : Okay, Youtube. I watched it. Now leave me alone.

Lil Girl : This should be a man vs Corrine vs pin thing

Jacklynn Jones : Gonna make this tonight but have to try using homemade powdered sugar instead of corn syrup cause making for a kid who's allergic to corn so using homemade clear syrup(corn syrup) let you know how it goes

nemode dj : but Technically its still just 1 very long strand in a loop :D

Selush Adel : I'm just gonna go ahead and say it, appreciate the amazing work and thank you so much for sharing this video, how ever, the thing you make, which as you stated, known as pismaniye, is definitely NOT cotton candy. Texture-wise it might be similar, but what makes cotton candy "cotton candy" is not only the cotton-like texture but also the burnt/melted sugar taste. Pismaniye might have similar ingredients and similar texture but completely different taste, therefore one can never replace the other. Still thank you for the amazing video! Edit: I watched it one more time and I must say, we prepared pismaniye at home years ago but we were pulling it 4-6 people not one. I'm so amazed that you could do it all by your self :) sweet!

Busra Akinci : Search how to make Pismaniye. We make it with two or more people in Turkey 🤗

mandel99 : Why do not you use the powdered sugar instead of the cornstarch?

Cluedo box : I love eating this kind of fairy floss!!!! It's my absolute favorite!! 😍

Dharma Yafi : i've tried this, but my problem was... the sugar didn't melt all the way. what was my mistake ?

순이뷔 : That's why here in Greece, we call cotton candy "Grandma's hair"

Vadamur : Very interesting video, really liked it :D Also, cotton candy is just **** disgusting, how can anyone eat it??? It's not food :D
