Marshmallow review

Here's the review of the Plush Puff Marshmallows previously promised.

I tried all 6 varieties. These were top of the line, premium sweets, and value always comes into play on this.

The Chocolate was excellent. They had a very good, intense chocolate flavor, enhanced by tiny chocolate chips on top.
I dropped two into my coffee, and it turned into a premium mocha cappuccino as good as any 5 buck cup at Starbucks. Worth every penny.

The S'more flavor was ok. I suppose it tasted like a s'more, but part of the s'more experience is the melting chocolate and toasted marshmallow. Hard to match that. It was ok, but not great.

The Caramel is a mixed review. I didn't like it at all, but the Mrs. loved it. Go figure. It was just too, ordinary, I guess, for me. Kind of boring. Pass.

The Vanilla, again, same thing. While it had a very pronounced vanilla flavor, it wasn't that much better than a Campfire. Considering one could buy a bag of marshmallows for about the cost of the two I put in my hot chocolate, I'd have to say pass on them, too.

The Mint were weird, only because I did not expect to find such an intense mint taste in a marshmallow. The taste was really good, and would probably be good on their own or mixed in tea.

Lastly, the Lemon Meringue. It tasted like lemon meringue pie. Really. The flavor was intense, and very natural tasting. I would seriously consider buying these again.

Overall, I would buy the chocolate and lemon, and maybe the mint. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but if used to make a couple cent home made coffee or tea into a high dollar gourmet treat, it's a good deal. And, in fairness to the company, the ingredients used seem to be the best. No cheap corn syrup. Sugar, brown rice syrup, honey and all natural extracts are not inexpensive.

They would make a nice treat, or a decent holiday gift.
