{GIVEAWAY} MARSHMALLOWS GALORE – BOOK & GIVEAWAY!

Marshmallows Galore - Book review and giveaway!

When I started playing with marshmallows in 2010, I did lots of research to find anything and everything that related to marshmallows. I was surprised to find there were no children’s books that included marshmallows.

Fast forward four years…. I finally found one and it is everything I wanted it to be like!!

GOURMET MARSHMALLOWS

I often get emails inquiring about homemade marshmallows and custom logo orders. As most of you already know, we do not make our own marshmallow because we use store-bought marshmallows to make all of our designs nor have we been taking orders since last year due to the book and our contract work with KRAFT Jet-Puffed that have kept us busy. After I reply to them letting them know of this, the next question is usually:

“Do you know of anyone I can order them from?”

There are a few companies out there that I always refer business to and there are others that are just recently popping up (or at least I’m just finding out about them) that love marshmallows as much as I do. I’m going to list a few below so if you get ever need to order some you know where to go :)

MARSHFELLOWS

I am delighted to share with you one of my all-time favorite marshmallow finds, Marshfellows. The artist behind these adorable little hand-made figurines is Autumn Saylor. She’s here today to tell us more about her inspiration behind her fluffy fellows and what she loves so much about marshmallows.
In Autumn’s words:
“Oh my gosh! What IS that?” You ask.
That, dear readers, is a Marshfellow! A one-of-a-kind chubby cheeked little fellow with a LOT of personality!
No, I’m afraid you can’t eat him, I’ll leave the edible sweets to Alejandra and her team at The Marshmallow Studio, however, you CAN bring him home and others like him to keep forever!
Toasty, as I like to call him is the Original Marshfellow, but there are many more where he came from! Each one handcrafted and completely unique from the others. My obsession with marshmallows happened on accident back in the fall of 2009. Armed with polymer clay, some creativity and a lot of free time, I played around with the idea of a marshmallow creature. Something chubby, cute and immediately lovable. Thus, the first Marshfellow was born!
   
What I love most about Marshfellows are the endless possibilities. I’m very lucky as an artist to have customers who are full of ideas and creative requests. That’s really what makes Marshfellows so special. I spend most of my time drawing up rough sketches of future Marshfellows and playing around with my own designs in between orders. While I do love custom orders more than anything, I also love the challenge of recreating a favorite movie or book character or transforming a beloved family member into Marshfellow form.
   
Marshfellows allows me to do something new every day. Their cute little faces remind me to not take everything so seriously, to laugh more and smile often. Marshfellows bring out the kid in me and that’s all I want for everyone else.”

MARSHMALLOW FINDS AT DISNEYLAND

 

Disneyland truly is the happiest place on Earth!!

Now that our baby boys are a little older we wanted to take them to Disneyland. Oh boy, did we have a blast!!

Although it was our little vacation, I couldn’t help to have my “marshmallow radar” on. I was checking out all the gift and sweets shoppes for any sort of unique marshmallows. Unfortunately, the marshmallow trend hasn’t hit Disneyland yet so I didn’t find much.

Read on to see my finds…

I bought these at Walmart and then saw them at Target. Remember that these are only seasonal and if you wish to have these shapes, colors, flavors or sizes you must get them now. Enjoy and don’t forget to share with us the fun things you do with YOUR ‘mallows ;)

MORE NEW ‘MALLOWS AVAILABLE AT WALMART

How cool are all these little marshmallow baggies that Walmart is now selling? We are static that new shapes, flavors, and color marshmallows are finally hitting the USA store shelfs. It’s about time! Marshmallows are huge all around the world and it seems like the US is catching on. I predict we’ll be seeing  a wider variety of marshmallows within this next year and we will be sure to include them in our designs! Purchase them when you see them and help support the “MALLOWS” movement The Marshmallow Studio has started :)

Don’t forget to tell us what you are doing with your ‘mallows! (Post photos or tell us at www.facebook.com/themarshmallowstudio or email us at info@themarshmallowstudio.com)

WE FOUND YUMMY NEW SEASONAL ‘MALLOWS

We just can’t wait to share with you the new marshmallows we found. Kraft is really stepping it up lately :)  Rush to your nearest Walmart or Target and stock up on these while they are out!!!

Then tell us what you did with them>>>>> pops, roast them, s’mores, dipped them in hot cocoa, a new receipe… what, what, what? We want to know and see! Share with us all. Post photos on our Facebook www.facebook.com/themarshmallowstudio or email them to us at info@themarshmallowstudio.com

COOL NEW MARSHMALLOWS FROM KRAFT!!!

Super super cool new marshmallows from Kraft, I found them at Walmart. They are called Jet-Puffed StackerMallows. They are meant to be swished in between a graham cracker and a Hershey’s chocolate bar to make s’mores. They are yummy white vanilla flavored rectangles (about 1″ x 1 1/2″ x 1/3″). I’ve already used them in my pops. I am also carrying them in my store

I am always looking for new marshmallow products to hit the USA market since right now most of the marshmallows I use I have to import them from Mexico, Guatemala and China. My goal is to popularize this art so the demand for a variety of shapes, colors and flavors increases and they start selling these products here too. That’s why I need every one’s help to spread the word.

AWESOME FUN FINDS: SEASONAL ‘MALLOWS

I LOVE these seasonal marshamallows I found at Walmart. Every season I browse the candy and baking department looking for seasonal things to stock up on. Most of these items can only be found for a few weeks but you can purchase them and they’ll last fresh in your pantry for the rest of the year and you can incorporate them into your designs throughout. 

Go out and stock up => Get creative! 

Remember to let us all know about your FUN FINDS (email us or post on our FB)
