Muah Cotton Candy is creating adorable sugar characters that are so sweet, you won’t want to eat them! 

The cotton candy shop in Water Tower Place is the newest Chicago sugar craze, and not just because they offer ten flavors of cotton candy. The sweet shop is putting a spin on traditional cotton candy treats with a creative menu that includes characters, clouds and even cakes made out of sweet candy floss.

By spinning sugar floss into colorful shapes, cotton candy artists handcraft each sweet character as you watch. Customers can customize cotton candy dinosaurs, ducklings, froggies and many more cute characters to their individual flavor and color preferences. 

The store also has an automatic cotton candy machine, allowing customers that want a simple candy cloud to skip the line and customize their own sugary creation.
