Ancient Egyptians were probably the first people to enjoy the treats we know today as marshmallows. As early as 2000 BCE, Egyptians were squeezing sap from the mallow plant and mixing it with nuts and honey to create a dessert so rare and delicious, it was reserved for royalty. We have no way of knowing what these early marshmallows looked like -- the pillowy shapes with which we are familiar today didn’t originate until the 19th century, when confectioners in France learned how to create a more stable version involving gelatin.
Today, the U.S. is considered the most dedicated devotee of the fluffy stuff -- according to marshmallow experts, Americans buy more than 90 million pounds of this gooey treat annually! Roasting ‘mallows over a campfire to create s’mores (or munch on alone after it has stopped smoldering!) has become a classic North American tradition.
For a flavorful twist on this all-American pastime, take a taste of these Tutti Fruttis! A brilliant pairing of white vanilla and pink tutti frutti marshmallows creates a truly smashing sensation easily appreciated by any discerning palate. Try roasting a few of these colorful fluffs on your next camping trip… and you thought s’mores couldn’t get any better!
Bag includes 10 ounces of Pink and White Campfire Tutti Frutti Marshmallows... that's about 40 pieces.
