Plush Puffs Simply S'mores

There is a special place in my heart (and digestive system) for marshmallows. I have always loved marshmallows and was the one kid out of 100 who actually liked Marshmallow Peeps. I even like to make my own marshmallows on occasion. So, I was thrilled to receive some gourmet, handmade marshmallows from Plush Puffs to review. Even better, Plush Puffs was kind enough to send me their newest flavor: Simply S’mores.

Plush Puffs come beautifully packaged, as you can see, and the individual marshmallows are in perfect bite-sized cubes. The Simply S’mores marshmallows start with Plush Puffs’ basic vanilla bean marshmallow, then are coated in cocoa powder and topped with some little chocolate nibs. Oh, and there are little bits of graham cracker inside the marshmallows! I have to say that while these don’t really taste like actual s’mores, they are a delicious standalone puff.

The vanilla flavor in the marshmallow is strong and pure, and the texture of the marshmallow is ideal – pillowy soft but firm and dense enough to have depth and just the right bite. They aren’t excessively gooey, either, a problem many marshmallows suffer. The unsweetened cocoa powder is bitter, but it’s just a light dusting and complements the sweetness of the marshmallow. The little chocolate chips on top are a nice touch and add a nice snap.

I tried these marshmallows fresh and again after a week, and while they did get a smidge chewier, they held up amazingly well. These would be outstanding in hot chocolate or lightly toasted. I know they’d be great in an actual s’more!

Based in southern California, Plush Puffs offers gourmet marshmallows in a host of flavors, including Luscious Lemony Meringue, Kona Coffee Crunch, Caramel Swirl, Vanilla Bean, Toasted Coconut, and Chocolate Chipetta. The bulk of the ingredients used are organic, and you can definitely taste the quality. Plush Puffs even turned Candy Addict’s own Brian into a marshmallow aficionado. You can read his 2005 Plush Puffs review for all of his feelings on these delicious delicacies.

    That does sound really good! I went to the Melting Pot for the first time last night and got to dip marshmallows in chocolate (and in a smores-themed chocolate pot too) and it was very tasty. I imagine using these would be even better :)
