We in the U.S. think of marshmallows being squarish in shape. The French do everything with flair, and their sweets are amazing.
My friend Chuck brought these two marshmallow sticks to me from his travels to Paris, and these have to be the most unique souvenir that I have ever received.
Each is about 14″ long, and wrapped in celophane. They are labeled as “Fancy Marshmallows” and that’s no lie. One is raspberry flavored, and the other is…..VIOLET! Really! A violet marshmallow! Only the French could imagine such a thing….
The flavors of each are subtle and absolutely delightful. The texture is like a homemade marshmallow, and the ingredients are simple, as if I had found them in my pantry. I am trying to ration these two by having a small piece each day.
