Yes, this is a real thing.
This weekend one of our contributors went to a dinner party and at dessert the hostess brought out what can only be described as a new delicacy.
It is known as Persian Silk. Created by the brand; Pariya, it is available in Selfridges.
The food can only be described to being a tiny bit similar to Candy Floss but the product is enthused with a much greater variety of flavours than the traditional fair snack. The flavours in the picture show pistachio for the green, rose for the pink and chocolate for the brown. It also has a MUCH more smooth and less sickly texture than Candy Floss (not to discredit candy Floss because we do all LOVE IT!)
