Gourmet popcorn was TNBT a little while ago and now it’s another simple snack getting gourmetfied. This time, it’s marshmallows.
Butter Baked Goods have been showing them off at fairs (in America) and the range seems to be pretty popular.
Plush Puffs looks like another popular brand, with flavours like Chocolate Chipetta (cocoa flavour with micro-mini chocolate chips) and Luscious Lemon Meringue.
Not a new one, but looks very cool.
