Vegan Marshmallows – is there such a thing?



For many of us, marshmallows are intertwined with beautiful memories, experiences, and emotions.

When you think of those sweet fluffy vanilla puffs, don’t you think of bonfires and s’mores, rice crispy treats, or hot chocolate with mini marshmallows? We are so lucky to have vegan marshmallows so we can dive into nostalgic memories and create new ones with family and friends.

Short answers to commonly asked questions about marshmallows:

What makes most marshmallows not vegan?

Marshmallows usually contain gelatin that is made by boiling skin, bones, and other animal parts (usually pigs, cows, or fish).

What are vegan marshmallows made of?

They can be made with agar-agar powder, carrageenan, or other vegan replacements for gelatin.

Which marshmallows are vegan?

We are so lucky to have many options for vegan marshmallows:

Dandies came to life when a father wanted his vegan child to have and enjoy marshmallows at a campfire. Since Ryan Howard is a food engineer, he was able to create these amazing marshmallows. You really won’t be able to distinguish them from the non-vegan option.
