I was recently sent a little goodie bag of soft, fluffy gourmet marshmallows from an online company called Fluffy Puff Puffs. I’ve only ever had the standard pink and white marshmallows which you find in the supermarket and more recently I attempted to make my own which you can see here.
The company have a good selection of flavours and are continually adding new ones. I was sent Lime Punch, Love Currant, Sugar & Spice and Raspberry. My favourite was definitely the Sugar & Spice which reminded me of eating Snickerdoodles as a child. They are coated in sugar which gives them a nice crunch in contrast to the soft, fluffy mallow. My least favourite was the Lime Punch and I think it had more to do with the colour than the flavour. It is very, very green which to me was just a bit off putting. The Raspberry and the Love Currant were both nicely flavoured. There are no preservatives so the shelf life is quite short – which just means you have to eat them all up quickly. I did look up to see what they use for food colouring and they use the PME food colouring range which is between 85 – 100% natural. PME do however use E133 (Brilliant Blue) in some of the colours which I know can be a problem for some people.
These little puffs of sweetness would make a lovely and unusual gift for someone with a sweet tooth. If you fancy trying Salted Caramel marshmallows (why, why didn’t I get this one??), or marshmallows drizzled with chocolate then pop over to their website to see all the lovely flavours available.
I was sent a free sample and was not paid for this post. All opinions are my own.
