SmashMallow!

Monday, June 26, 2017


I love snacks so much. Truthfully, I love food so much, but when it comes to snacking (sweets, especially), I'm a connoisseur (I've been thinking of doing a weekly roundup. That way I can call my experimental buys market research). Even more specifically, I'm a marshmallow connoisseur. We recently got a big box of SmashMallows delivered to our place (I was elated!), and upon seeing the size of the box and all the samples inside, Brian was like "name the blog Make the Mallow already" (obsession proof: Instagrams on marshmallows, these cookie mallows, our go-to dessert at home). Not the worst idea! I know a good mallow (growing up, you wouldn't catch me with a hand in the cookie jar, rather, the marshmallow bag), and SmashMallows are really good mallows. Large and fluffy artisan cut squares in a variety of festive flavors. I knew I'd be hooked when I saw the cute packaging, but they're also truly delicious, and combined with the fact that the ingredients are all natural and each serving is 80 calories (generous servings at that), I had to share these. 




Out of the six flavors sent (root beer float, mint chocolate chip, Meyer lemon chia seed, cinnamon churro, strawberries and cream), I selected strawberries and cream as my main 'mallow of choice. And upon more research (like, a lot more research) it's my favorite flavor. They're so light, with just a hint of strawberry and not at all too sweet. To make them a bit fancier, I dipped a few in chocolate over the weekend. Another favorite? Toasted coconut pineapple. You feel transported to a land of tropical nostalgia, and those are ideally fluffy with a bonus crunch from the coconut topping. Since B's coconut averse and I was generously sharing this weekend, I dipped the strawberry ones, but I imagine the coconut ones would be delicious in chocolate too (I mean, what isn't delicious dipped in chocolate? :)

My family isn't big on fruit flavors, so I'm taking mint chocolate chip (sweet and creamy) and cinnamon churro (covered in a delectable cinnamon sugar powder) for them on a trip this weekend. There's definitely something for everyone's palate.



If you're also majorly into marshmallows (and agree with me on their snacking potential), then you can scoop up your own pack at a number of retailers (we saw a bunch at REI a few weeks ago) or online. Imagine them as s'mores! We're going camping in a few weeks, and I'll be taking a few of each flavor to test :) I've also got a bag stashed in my desk drawer at work. For hangry emergencies.

P.S. Hitting up this marshmallow cafe in Chicago with a few girlfriends in July! Would love to hear your thoughts if you've been.
