Thanks to TikTok, the wait to order one of this dessert shop’s cotton candy confections can be two hours or more. Upon arrival, check the written menu on the front that lists the characters available for that day. One of their most viral creations is a fluffy white sugar unicorn head with a rainbow-colored mohawk. Also popular is the golden Pooh Bear and Nintendo’s Kirby. Come not only for the sugar rush but the assembly of these creations—multicolored sugar is spun, shaped, sliced, and melted to meticulously form each character. In addition to cotton candy, order ice cream and decorate it with items from the topping bar, pick up an ice-blended Java the Float with espresso, or grab jarred cotton candy to go.
How to order: Polar Playground is open for takeout Wednesday through Sunday.
