Cotton Candy


Cotton candy (or "vattacukor" as we call it) is not a typical Hungarian food, and not healthy, but very popular in Hungary. To be honest I dont'like it, but my children and my husband like it vey much.


Cotton candy or candy floss is a form of spun sugar. Since it consists of mostly air, servings are large. Many people consider eating cotton candy part of the quintessential experience of a visit to a funfair or circus. But in Hungary you usually can find it in and any vendors on the beach and in the zoo, too.

Roasting Bacon


Szalonnasütés ("SA-LOW-NA SHOO-TAYSH") means "roasting bacon" in Hungarian. It is a popular social activity in summer to roast szalonna with onion over an open fire. The melted fat is let to drip on bread, and it is eaten with the roasted or with raw onion.


It's not healthy, but delicious and lots of fun. Try it one day!
