  • Turkish fairy floss became famous as a dessert original to İzmit. The fact that it is light and original type of dessert ensured that it has become known all around Turkey and attracted attention. The main ingredients of Turkish fairy floss are sugar, flour and butter and it requires heavy efforts to make it. Making fairy floss requires melting down the sugar until it becomes sticky and making a big ring out of it after freezing the sticky material. Then, butter is added to parched flour placed on a round metal tray. After this, several people around the tray start revolving the big ring on the butter and flour mixture. After each turn, the sugar is reshaped as a ring and this continues until all the flour is absorbed by the ring of sugar and the sugar turns into strings of halva. Although mixing parched flour with butter sounds easy, all the efforts might turn out to be in vain with a simple mistake. Turkish fairy floss is originally named “piflmaniye” in Turkish and it comes from the word “piflman” which means “regretful” because while eating the fairy floss, the person eating it gets sticky lips and hands and the dessert crumbles in one’s hands. So, the idea is that you will regret eating it but you will regret it even more if you do not eat the splendidly delicious dessert. This is the story of the name.
