Long time no taste. At first I thought you were just a side item to the wonderful smores that I would eat during the winter or the last thing I would grab when I needed something sweet and had no other options. I would put you in hot chocolate but realized that cool whip tasted better. I even gave you a try when Easter came around and you would stuff yourself into those colored egg shaped candies only to get pissed because it was so hard I could have chipped a tooth.
You see Marshmallows, you have kinda left a bad taste in my mouth...literally. I thought I would be done with you forever until I was on a website looking for vegan treats. I came across Sweet & Sara. I was looking through the delicious looking treats when what do I see? You. But not just you. You and your friends cinnamon and pecan. Now at first I thought you were going to trick me again. Place yourself in to a few of my favorite things just so I would eat you. But I admit Marshmallow, you had my attention. I searched a little more.
I found a lot of reviews praising you and your new found home at Sweet & Sara. I though maybe Sweet & Sara had made you likable, after all you were in this cute square shape. I closed the website and continued my search for vegan treats. But then you began torturing me Marshmallows. I began thinking about you all the time, wondering where you were and what you were doing. OK - maybe I wasn't that bad but I did have you on my list of things to try.
Then one day, while walking around Whole Foods, there you were. I stared at you for a second. It was kinda awkward as we have not seen each other in a while but you looked so lovely just sitting there by other treats. I picked you up and I have to admit a smile came across my face. I saw you in all your glory, pecans, cinnamon, ewey gooey white fluff. I didn't get my hopes up though. I wanted to make sure it was real this time. I didn't want you to disappoint me again.
Everything else was a blur until I was sitting in my car opening your container and placing my fingers around your softness. I placed you in my mouth and was so overcome with joy. You tasted fabulous! Now, I don't want to get carried away and embarrass myself so I will just get to the point. Sweet & Sara made you delicious. I praise them for thinking outside the box and giving the vegan world such a good little treat. I am sorry for having doubted you for so long. I hope you can forgive me and I promise that next time I question you...well there won't be a next time. I am hooked!
Your Reformed Marshmallow Hater
So in summary here is my final review:
(on a scale from 1 to 5)
Taste - 4 1/2 - I would have given them a 5 but unfortunately they tasted like my fridge when I tried them a few days later. Plactic bag next time! :-)
Price - 4 - While the $5.99 might be quite a shock for most people, it really is a reasonable price for 16-18 pieces and I was satisfied after eating just one. So it was well worth it to me.
Flavor - 5- Cinnamon and pecan are two of my favorite things. These are the only ones I have tried so far but neither one was overpowering and went beautifully with the marshmallows.
Texture - 5 - It really is the perfect texture. soft and a little chewy.
I can't wait to try other flavors! Thank you Sweet & Sara!
