Why, it's cotton candy.

While strolling by the Eiffel Tower last month, we kept seeing flashes of pink popping in and out of the crowds of tourists surrounding the landmark. When we got closer, we were able to see that the pink was actually cotton candy, which was for sale at the concession stand on the side closest to the Seine. Granted, it was mostly kids eating the cotton candy, but we spied a few adults picking at the pink as well.

Personally, we'd rather hit up one of Paris' many patisseries than chew on some fluffy sugar, but to each his own. C'est la vie en rose! Also, not surprisingly, cotton candy at the Eiffel Tower is also the name of a nail polish color.

The Eiffel Tower is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. but will extend its hours for the summer season on June 1st. Tickets start at 14.5 Euros for a ride all the way up to the top. You can also opt to go just to the 2nd floor for 8.5 Euros. Just be sure to book your ticket online so you can skip the terribly long queues when you get there.
