A fluffy, soft candied food that is made from egg whites, gelatin, and corn syrup. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes and textures, the traditional marshmallow has a spongy texture that provides a sweet flavor for snacks, baked goods and sweet desserts. It is a candy that is produced in a semi-soft round shape in both regular and miniature sizes (1 regular size marshmallow equals approximately 10 miniature marshmallows). Marshmallow creme is a form of the marshmallow candy that is produced as a spreadable product to added to warm beverages such as cocoa and baked desserts, or spread on cookies, crackers and toasted breads. A popular snack with marshmallow and chocolate is known as s'mores. This sweet treat consists of roasted marshmallows and melted chocolate placed between two squares of graham crackers to be eaten warm.
