HOT FINISH: Cotton Candy

Sure, the last time you ate spun sugar on a stick, you threw up all over your brother from the top of a Ferris wheel. But you're all grown up now. You can handle a little cotton candy - at least, those carnies who are whipping it up in our local kitchens think so. At BOKX 109 (399 Grove Street, Newton, 617.454.3399), it's on the house, arriving with the check in rotating flavors - raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, or green apple. Likewise, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar (271 Dartmouth Street, Boston, 617.369.5609) delivers green-apple puffballs sprinkled with Pop Rocks gratis with your bill. A maple-flavored version comes à la carte or alongside brown-sugar angel-food cake with caramel ice cream at Towne Stove and Spirits (900 Boylston Street, Boston, 617.247.0400). Meanwhile, Mary Dumont at Harvest (44 Brattle Street, Cambridge, 617.868.2255) is studding her cotton candy with bacon - a state-fair-worthy snack if ever there were one.
