What better way to complement fireworks than with glowing, colorful snacks?

Disney is on a roll lately with introducing photogenic snacks at its theme parks, like lightsaber churros and stunning Avatar-inspired desserts. The latest eye-catching edible from the most magical place on Earth is glow-in-the-dark cotton candy.

Light-up cotton candy has been spotted all over social media. People are searching the Magic Kingdom (at night, of course) for these colorful spun-sugar snacks. But not only does the cotton candy glow in different colors, it actually flashes in time to the brand-new fireworks show, “Happily Ever After,” which takes place behind and on Cinderella’s Castle. The cotton candy is also available at Disneyland, where it flashes in time with the fireworks during the California Adventure's “World of Color” show.
