REVIEWS OF FAVORITE MARSHMALLOWS

MORE BRANDS REVIEWED

 

Sweet Purrfection Artisan Meringues & Confections

Favorite flavor: Coffee.

The color of a very pale café au lait, these mallows had a noticeable coffee aroma and a wonderful coffee flavor, one that you could taste but which didn’t overwhelm you. Tender marshmallow. Lovely.

Also tasted: Chocolate, Chocolate-Covered Peppermint.

As a general point-of-view, Sweet Purrfection has a milder fruit flavor profile than the other favorite brands. So if you prefer a more subtle flavor in your marshmallows, these are it.

Buy online at SweetPurrfection.com.

Softly Sweetly Hand-Crafted Marshmallows

Favorite flavors: Coconut, Coffee.

The large Coconut marshmallows are very tender. Toasted coconut coats the exterior, adding to their good looks. They have a good coconut flavor and nice textural contrast, the latter in part because the mallows themselves are so delicately textured. The Coffee are also large confections, and just as tender as the Coconut. They have a little swirl of chocolate on their tops, but the flavor is all coffee. Although slight initially, the coffee taste grows in intensity as you chew, and there’s even a hint of coffee bitterness at the end. Although I’m not normally a big fan of bitter flavors, it works very well here. How about one of these on a warm brownie?

Also tasted: Vanilla, Coconut-Chocolate.

Buy online at Etsy.com/shop/softlysweetly.

Tart Sweets

Favorite flavor: Peppermint.

Medium-sized marshmallows in pretty pink-and-white swirls, with a potent but clean peppermint flavor. If you enjoy a strong peppermint, these are for you.

Also tasted: Chocolate.

Buy online at TartSweets.com.

  Peppermint Marshmallows
Peppermint marshmallows: Pretty in pink.
