Marshmallows are one of my favorite nobread friendly snacks; however, for the first few years that I was gluten free, I avoided marshmallows as I assumed all things delicious contained gluten. When I discovered several gluten free marshmallow brands, I was thrilled, but my excitement was short lived. Generic marshmallows contain a plethora of ingredients (mainly artificial) and although gluten free, the little white puffs often upset me.
Recently, I discovered Squish Marshmallows, a brand of all natural marshmallows! Squish marshmallows are delicious, and each marshmallow is made from scratch and hand-cut. The company uses as many natural and GMO-free ingredients as possible, doesn’t use corn syrup, doesn’t use food dyes, and doesn’t use eggs in the marshmallow base. An allergy friendly marshmallow? Sign me up!
Gluten free flavors include birthday party, rocky road, gingerbread and peppermint. The birthday party marshmallows were SO delicious, and they are both gluten AND dairy free; right up my alley! There is also minimal ingredients used in this flavor; they just contain sugar, water, honey, salt, gelatin, cornstarch, pure vanilla extract, and rainbow sprinkles. My favorite marshmallow was rocky road; but chocolate lovers beware, you will be addicted to this chocolatey puff. My friends and I couldn’t get over the taste, and everyone commented that they would be PERFECT with our next cup of hot chocolate.
Squish Marshmallows is on to something great, and I’m excited for the company’s success. Shelf life is best within 4 weeks for most flavors, but can still be enjoyed 4-6 weeks later. Check out Squish’s site to order!
