REVIEW: Fluffy Puff Puffs Artisanal Gourmet Marshmallows

You may not know that i have celiac disease. This means i'm unable to eat any gluten. It also means that i often cannot eat yummy scrummy things. Hubby often tucks into cakes and cookies and i crave something special to snack on. So i was utterly delighted to hear that Fluffy Puff Puffs make three gluten free flavours of gourmet marshmallows:
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Strawberry Burst
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle
I was so excited when the package arrived! Louisa sent me a full pack of Vanilla Bean (6 pieces) and then a single piece of Strawberry Burst and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle. I wanted to delve right in and eat them there and then but i promised hubby that i would wait and taste them with him so i mustered as much willpower as i could and stared at them impatiently until he got back from work:

I have to be honest previous to this review the only marshmallows i have eaten are the cheap pink and white ones you buy from the supermarket - well i can tell you these do not compare to the ones sent from Fluffy Puff Puffs.

Firstly, i was amazed by the size of the marshmallows - they are HUGE! At least four mouthfuls (and i have a big mouth!)

Secondly, they smelt amazing!! Especially the Strawberry Burst piece. I never could believe that a marshmallow could smell so delicious!

And finally the taste was simply divine! Each flavour had its own qualities:
  • We found the Vanilla Bean pieces lovely and smooth. The flavour was subtle but very clearly there. These would be perfect in a mug of hot chocolate for the ultimate treat!!!
  • The Strawberry Burst was completely yummy! These contain fresh strawberries that have been dried in an oven for three hours. The result is a really beautiful smooth marshmallow with an intense strawberry taste. These marshmallows also look beautuful. I could imagine them making the most perfect wedding favours!!
  • The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle is the most decedant of them all! They were create by mixing 53% Belgian Dark Chocolate with 100% roasted peanut butter to create a thick ganache, this mixture is then drizzled onto a Vanilla Bean marshmallow. The final outcome is divine (but very rich - i don't think i could manage more than two in any one sitting - although i'd give it a good try to devour more!!)
After a lot of deliberation we attempted to pick our favourite flavour. Hubby opted for the Strawberry Burst and being a chocoholic i had to go for the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle. Although we both loved all three flavours.

These are the ultimate mummy and daddy treat and we thoroughly recommend that you order yourself a pack (or two ... or three) today and try them for yourself. Visit the Fluffy Puff Puffs website today and make an order. If you love them as much as us why not consider ordering some up as Christmas gifts (remember you'll have to this nearer to Christmas though because they are fresh they have a shorter shelf life than other sweets)
