I went vegetarian when I was 13. I didn't eat a marshmallow for over a decade, because the traditional ones are made with gelatin (bones, skins, hooves, slaughterhouse waste, etc). Not eating marshmallows is far from being the end of the world, but you can't help feeling a bit left out around a campfire. When I found these and tried one for the first time, they tasted EXACTLY like the way I remembered marshmallows tasting, but they don't contain any death or suffering. Vegan bliss. These make great vegan smores, along with Healthy Valley Amaranth Graham Crackers (also available on iHerb). I would also recommend dropping a few into a mug of vegan hot chocolate on a cold winter night.

I really don't like the taste of these (and don't get how anyone does, maybe I got a bad batch?). Ananda's marshmallows are miles and miles tastier, but Dandies are cheaper and come in bigger quantities, so they're probably better for things like rice crispies squares (haven't tried it) since you can disguise their taste with the other ingredients. They're horrible for roasting (it makes them taste like burnt sugar). Just no.

I bought these to make rice krispie treats as it is hard to find marshmallows in Korea. These did not work. They do not melt in the same way as regular marshmallows. Their texture is ...off. If you are looking for vegan than I'm sure it's great. But if you thought these would replace regular marshmallows they won't!

I think this is a great product in case you like marshmallows... They behave in the same way and taste as sweet as the gelatine-containing original, although a bit heavier. As I DON'T like marshmallows, I consequently don't like these treats either... But as it is vegan, I just HAD to try...
