These puffy, bite-sized delights date back to as early as 2,000 B.C. and were considered a delicacy. Only gods and royalty were deemed worthy to enjoy them. Ancient Egyptians made marshmallows by extracting sap from the mallow plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. It wasn’t until the nineteenth century that candy makers started mixing the sap with egg whites and sugar. Whipping the ingredients by hand, the mixture took the shape that we all know today. Even candy bar manufacturers couldn’t deny the demand. 3 Musketeers, Hershey, Milky Way, and Snickers are just a few of the brand names that jumped on the bandwagon.
