Carnival CandyWhile many sweets are sold


While many sweets are sold
At carnivals and fairs
Only a few
Are traditionally there

Cinnamon and cherry candy canes
Specifically those types
One brittle, chewy and brown
The other deep red without stripes

And there's always the pink
Cotton candy on a stick
Leaving lips and fingers sticky
No matter how careful your trick

Lastly you sometimes see nougat
Flat diamond shapes in foil
With a thin layer of chocolate
Maybe so it doesn't spoil

Those are the classics
While I'm sure there are trends
You can still find them all
At fairs in the Netherlands
