As if the famed vegan marshmallows from Sweet & Sara weren’t already irresistible enough, their latest move into the realm of holiday-themed treats will certainly put them over the top. Turning those classic white cubes into shapes so adorable that even Peeps would drool with envy over, the latest addition to their already spooky and sweet ghost is a wide-eyed, Chocolate-Dipped Bat.
The beauty of this Halloween offering isn’t so much the actual shape though, but the fact that it’s absolutely loaded with quality dark chocolate, providing the perfect textural foil to the light and fluffy mallow underneath. With just the barest hint of bitterness, it knocks down the level of sweetness overall, and makes these bats dangerously easy to wolf down. This one pictured above just barely survived the photo shoot, and trust me, it sure didn’t stick around long after.
What’s even more exciting is not the new ways these mallows are being decorated, but a whole new line up of flavors, perfectly suited for the fall and winter seasons.
Tinted to a pale, peachy blush, the flavor may not be evident just from a quick glance, but one whiff and you’ll known instantly that this is one sweet pile of Pumpkin Spice marshmallows. Amazingly, I even got a hint of squash just from a quick sniff; A flavor that is easily lost even in more pumpkin-packed desserts, this is quite a feat indeed. Although it’s perhaps not as evident in the taste, these definitely read as their name sake, and do not disappoint. Warm spices are infused throughout each fluffy pillow, with cinnamon taking the lead, they are still mild and delicate enough that children as sure to love them as much as adults. Just try substituting one of these miniature pumpkin pie bites for a vanilla mallow next time you make a s’more, and you may not be able to go back to the original version.
Just the concept of mint and chocolate together gets my mouth watering, so I could barely stand the anticipation while waiting to taste the Chocolate Peppermint marshmallows. Lightly dusted with cocoa powder, these puffs are chocolate-y all the way through. Though the interiors are lighter in color, don’t let that fool you, as the flavor is strong throughout. Happily, the mint doesn’t overwhelm but isn’t lost in the candy either; Striking that illusive balance between the two flavors, each little mallow is both decadent and refreshing. Perhaps the perfect little treat to serve after a heavy dinner, these marshmallows are quite possibly the best version of pillow mints one could imagine. Easily taking the spot as my new favorite flavor, I can hardly wait for them to be more widely available with Sweet & Sara‘s other standard offerings!
