Gelatin Has Left the Building. – Sweet & Sara Marshmallow Review and Giveaway!

November 22, 2009

Sara from Sweet & Sara was kind enough to send us a Marshmallow Variety Sampler, which contained four of each marshmallow flavor (vanilla (which we pronounce vaneeya), toasted coconut, cinnamon pecan, and strawberry), to taste test and review.

She will be sending one lucky winner a Marshmallow Variety Sampler as well!

All four flavors are “deeee eeeee lissssh us” and have a great texture. Our favorites, however, are the coconut and cinnamon pecan flavors. These marshmallows are great just by themselves straight out of the refrigerator. The vanilla and coconut flavors are also great for making Vegan s’mores. They melt and get all gooey mmmmmm. They are especially good if you have access to Rice Milk bars (we HIGHLY suggest Terra Nostra’s Ricemilk Choco Bar). We have not tried making s’mores with the other two flavors but we are sure they would be vair tasty too.

And if you don’t feel like making your own s’mores? Then Sweet & Sara has you covered with their Original and Peanut Butter flavored S’mores. They are good cold, at room temperature, or heated up. Our favorite is the Original but the Peanut Butter variety is also nom worthy.

You might be saying to yourself right around now “Wow, that is a lot of tasty looking products. There is no way they could have even more.” If so, you would be wrong! This is one of the times it pays to be wrong though so don’t worry :D. S&S now offers mini vanilla marshmallows that could go great with some Vegan hot chocolate or maybe you could add them to a bowl of cereal :D. And finally there is the Rocky Road Bark which has a big bite.

Wozzie used to own and run her own Shoppe and she sold S&S marshmallows and s’mores. They were some of the best selling items in the shoppe! Woz says that Sara was great to deal with too. We would like to end the review by begging Sweet & Sarah to bring back the Mexican Chocolate flavored marshmallows. Please, please, please, please Sara!!

Now for the giveaway. To enter leave a comment telling us your favorite Sweet & Sara marshmallow flavor. If you have not tried any of the flavors let us know which one you look forward to trying the most. Is one entry not quite enough for you? Then follow us on Twitter (we are HHVeganos) and Tweet about the giveaway. Then make another comment on here linking to your Tweet to get a second entry into the contest. The winner will be chosen at random. Winner will be chosen on Friday, November 27. Good luck to all of you! Sorry, contest is for the USA only.

    I’m a big fan of the toasted coconut, but would love to get my hands on the cinnamon pecan to put on top of sweet potato mash for Thanksgiving!

    Today I made sweet potatoes with the cinnamon pecan marshmallows for an early Thanksgiving… amazing. One of my friends declared them the best marshmallows he’s ever had. High praise all around. They’re the only kind I’ve had so far but I can’t wait to try more! Strawberry sounds delicious!

    I have never tried Sweet & Sara, but all the flavors sound delicious! The cinnamon pecan flavor is very intriguing. I haven’t had a marshmallow since I went vegan almost 4 years ago. I hope I win!

    I love the Strawberry ones. I use them to make pb&strawberry rice crispy treats πŸ™‚

  28. November 23, 2009 5:38 PM

    i’ve only had vanilla marshmallows, plain smores and the PB smores. OHMYGAWD!!! the PB smore was insanely good. the layer of peanut butter was such a good idea! it reminded me of this cookie i had in my youth, but i never remember the name of it. it was amazingly good.

    Toasted coconut, definitely! Tried Cinnamon-Pecan recently and LOVE it as well! I’m looking forward to trying the strawberry ones (they weren’t in the sampler I bought recently which had cinnamon-pecan, vanilla and coconut). Not even sure where to get the strawberry ones–if you do, please let me know! My local health food store that carries vanilla/coconut/sampler doesn’t have them and neither do some of the Whole Foods stores I checked out…
    Love the original S’mores as well but above all I love Sweet & Sara!

    I have never tasted a vegan marshmallow in my life. I would be most honored and humbled to try a vegan vanilla one.

    I’ve only tried the vanilla and coconut, but would loooooooove to get my hands on the strawberry marshmallows!

  39. November 24, 2009 12:38 PM

    I like the vanilla ones; they can be used to make a treat I used to make as a kid, long before becoming vegan. It involves microwaving the marshmallow with a little soy margarine and a generous amount of cocoa powder, then stirring it until it turns in a chocolate taffy-like substance. Yum πŸ™‚

  40. November 24, 2009 11:33 PM

    I love these marshmallows, even though I’ve only had them once (the vanilla). I bet the coconut would be really good, but what I really want is to try them all!
