Marshmallow Favor

These tasty treats are fit for a pharaoh and now come in all sizes and flavors! We’re talking about Marshmallows; soft, fluffy, and sweet! They are a perfect treat or snack for any occasion! Marshmallows originated in ancient Egypt and were special candies just for the pharaohs! They made marshmallows by extracting sap from the marshmallow plant and mixing it with honey and nuts. Another pre-modern version of marshmallows was to take the same plant, but use the stem instead of the sap, boil it in sugar syrup and then wait for it to dry to get a soft chewy candy. Marshmallows, before they were a treat, were used for medicinal purposes because the root of the marshmallow plant soothed sore throats. Unfortunately today’s marshmallows can’t soothe a sore throat because they now are made with gelatin instead of marshmallow plant powder because it is hard to obtain. Even though a marshmallow today might not be able to soothe and soar throat, it is still a delicious treat and here at SugarPop’s we can even make it into a gift! We custom make personalized marshmallows in store! It can make any event like weddings, baby showers, birthdays, corporate events and much more extremely memorable for your guest!
