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.
Not all marshmallows are created equal. Take these minis, for example -- unlike their bigger brothers, these tiny treats don’t fare well in a campfire. But they still pack a ton of marshmallowy goodness in itty bitty bite-size form! These sweet little things are perfect in hot cocoa, or they make great solo snacks when you’re crave a little surge of yum. And with 90 calories and no fat per pack, they're ideal for a guilt-free nibble!
