The Kentucky State Fair opens its gates on Thursday, and to celebrate and nab some of the spotlight, Metro area Thorntons are offering up Cotton Candy Donuts. Is the sticky-sweet sentiment sincere or questionable? That’s for you to decide next time you fill up your tank.
The puffy, fluffy confection supposedly tastes like sugar on a stick. According to the press release, they took a glazed donut, dunked it in cotton-candy-flavored pink icing, doused it with sprinkles, and then topped it off with a dollop of blue cotton-candy-flavored whipped cream.
Sounds like something straight out of a Katy Perry video and not on the Beyonce diet.
The donuts will be available starting today through the end of August at Thorntons in Louisville, Southern Indiana and Lexington.
