240 Sweet Gourmet Marshmallows Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! So my next review and giveaway is for 240 Sweet Artisan Marshmallows. 240 Sweet is a great company known for creating amazing gourmet marshmallows. And by gourmet, I really mean gourmet, they have amazing flavors and they're definitely like fully loaded. The chocolate flavors have chocolate chips on them, there's little pieces on top. They're amazing.



The flavors I received are:
Elephant Ear
Pomegrante
Bananas Foster


I liked the variety of flavors they sent me and I was so surprised when I tried them. They are giant marshmallows, fluffy like regular marshmallows but not as chewy, you can bite into them easily. I wasn't sure what Elephant Ear was but it smelled delicious and I tried it first, it's mainly cinnamon sugar coated over a very vanilla bean puff but it ended up being my favorite. Just enough sweetness yet still nice and marshmallowy. I was really excited to try Bananas Foster because I love Bananas Foster in general but it didn't taste how I expected it too, I don't think it was the right type of sweetness I was expecting? It wasn't bad though, but not as good as the other two. The Pomegranate I was super surprised by because I was pretty nervous trying a pomegranate flavored marshmallow, it didn't seem right, but it ended up being pretty delicious. Not too sweet or fruity but not plain, just right.

I love how they're packaged too, in nice little baggies with ribbons, great small gifts or little presents in stocking stuffers or Easter baskets. They have such a variety of flavors too, definitely something for everyone, unless you're not a marshmallow fan (which then, is a shame, haha). They have over 70 gourmet flavors from nutella to beef. Yup, they have a beef flavor.

Another great thing is that 240Sweet is eco-friendly. They buy locally and make their products in small batches to ensure freshness. They even make their own vanilla using organic Tahitian vanilla beans and every 1.5" x 1.5" marshmallow is made by hand.

Overall, 240 Sweet's artisan marshmallows were incredibly delicious and I really want to start a bonfire or light up my fireplace just to see how one of these babies tastes roasted. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed.

  1. I think I'd pick the Praline Marshmallow if I won. That sounds yummy. Although, as weird o.O as that Avocado and Lime marshamllow sounds, I might be tempted to try one of those. Just because it sounds so odd. And I don't even care for avocado.
