Hmm, I thought I read

Hmm, I thought I read somewhere sometime that the transparent, glassy candy was called spun sugar. (The cotton kind is cotton candy in the US and candy floss in the UK I think) Anyway, it’s that transparent candy!

Zurich Christmas market

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend tour of Christmas markets. I was at Zurich’s train station, and the market there is fantastic - just enormous. The 50 foot Swarovski tree is certainly a highlight - gorgeous and mind blowing how many crystals are on it! (the crepes were another highlight :)

We used to decorate our houses during Christmas days with several Christmas ornaments! I liked the spun-sugar candy Christmas ornaments and interested to purchase some! Is it available online? If yes, mention the online web store details in the future posts!
