Nijiya had its summer festival this past weekend (July 18 & 19). I had previously attended Nijiya's spring festival, which was fun. Because I was so busy this past weekend, I only was able to stop by at the end of Saturday. Enough time to quickly browse the food offerings and take a few pictures.
What I was most intrigued by was the fresh made cotton candy machine! I know I know. It's just cotton candy. But I love cotton candy, and this one was only $2, and it is made right before your eyes! I had fun watching it being made and as it became bigger and bigger:
Here is the final product:
I wanted to take a better shot of it, but the white color and the brightness outside, made a reflection/glare that my camera was not happy with and so it wouldn't focus on the cotton candy unless I was standing very far away.
In the car though, I was able to get some pictures of the pretty gold strands of sugar:
The cotton candy was yummy and gone within minutes. Boyfriend thought the texture was a bit rough. It is a bit tougher than the cotton candy we usually get at the fair, but I really enjoyed it regardless.
