My children have NEVER eaten a marshmallow!Why? Because I know what is in most mainstream marshmallows and I didn't want that anywhere my children's bodies! Yes, I have wished that I could put some marshmallows in their homemade hot chocolate. Yes, I have wanted to make them smores and yes, I have wanted to make them rice krispy bars. But, I haven't....until now!
Let me tell you how excited I was to find out about Dandies marshmallows, the first Non-GMO Project Verified marshmallows on the market! Dandies are made with all-natural ingredients and completely free of gelatin, artificial ingredients, and high fructose corn syrup. The products are produced in the company’s dedicated facility, which is free of dairy, eggs, peanuts, and tree-nuts. Dandies marshmallows are also free of wheat, gluten and corn, 100% vegan, and certified kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council.
YES!I first put them to the hot chocolate test and it passed with flying colors! My children have asked for marshmallows and hot chocolate every day since and I almost want to say yes! :)
I even had to give them a try and I can vouch for the fact that they really did taste like the ones from my childhood.
We plan on trying them out in some Valentine's Day treats, like in maybe these Cherry Vanilla Crispy Treat Cupcakes! I will definitely share how it goes!
But most importantly, I never have to shy away from desserts or treats that have marshmallows as an ingredient again! I love that and I love that my children can finally experience a marshmallow without any guilt from this mom!
You can purchase Dandies Classic Vanilla Marshmallows in big (campfire style) and mini sizes at Whole Foods Market and other natural foods stores across the U.S., Canada and select International markets. The SRP is $4.99 for a 10oz package.
