Vegan Marshmallows – is there such a thing?
For many of us, marshmallows are intertwined with 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?
Whatever it is, we are so lucky to have vegan marshmallows so that we can dive into nostalgic memories and create new ones with family and friends.
Short answers to commonly asked questions about marshmallows:

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

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 from the less natural, non-vegan option.

Yum! Totally not healthy at all. BUT surprisingly dairy, egg and nut free. Great on dairy-free ice cream or on egg-free brownies. I might have to see if I can use it in place of marshmallow cream in a recipe. #smuckers #marshmallowtopping #icecreamtopping #eggfree #dessert #storebought #dairyfree #nutfree #dairyeggnutfree #foodallergies #foodallergymom #foodallergyblogger #milkallergy #nutallergy #eggallergy #glutenfree #vegan
