Incredibly Fantastic Marshmallows

3219090787_43fd6480ea_mI’ve never posted a food review on RTD, but today I had a marshmallow epiphany.It was wholly unexpected and entirely blissful. With any luck, this moment will be with me forever.

When a representative from Plush Puffs got in touch with me about trying their gourmet marshmallows, I must admit, I was skeptical. After all, how great can a marshmallow be, right? Still, being a fan of cheap things, I certainly enjoy freebies and gladly agreed to test out their products.

In one day, my opinion of marshmallows has changed forever. Prior to trying to Plush Puffs I thought of mallows as merely a tool for making certain desserts, like s’mores and rice squares. With Plush Puffs though, the marshmallow is all you need for dessert.

These light, fluffy bits of heaven are sweet and flavorful. The brand has six standard flavors, including Simply S’mores and Peppi-Mint, and claims they are willing to custom make flavors as well.

I tried the Caramel Swirl, Luscious Lemon Meringue and the Chocolate Chippetta and found each flavor to have its own magical kick. The caramel was bursting with light, sweet caramel, just hovering short of the delicate line of too sweet. The lemon had a delightful tang reminiscent of my mother’s lemon bars. The chocolate was dusted in cocoa powder and fitted with a sprinkling of chocolate chips making it a perfect after dinner snack.

Best of all, these tiny indulgences are incredibly healthy considering how delectable they are. Five mallows will land you only 70 calories and 0 grams of fat. For those of you looking to fight processed foods, they contain no corn syrup or artificial preservatives either.

If you ever get the chance to try these wonderful goodies, don’t pass it up. I assure you, they are worth the price.
