SOLA 日式棉花糖 Review
4/5 Cotton candy burrito NT$160 (2 servings)
Cotton candy, vanilla ice cream, milk tea powder, ice cream cone crunch all wrapped in the cotton candy. Additional toppings include strawberries and blueberries.
They only serve the cotton candy burrito as 2 servings so if you want to try it, find someone to share it with or get that sweet sugar high.
It was sooooo sweet and a very unique experience. Soft cotton candy exterior, crunchy ice cream cone, cold soft ice cream and powdered flavoring. Definitely something I have to limit getting because of the sugar levels, but a pretty looking treat.
If you’re not getting the burrito, you can get a cup of cotton candy for NT$80 or a very large swirl of it for NT$150. I haven’t seen another place in Taiwan that sells cotton candy, but for less than NT$100 in a popular area like Ximending is a decent deal.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
