A few weeks ago, my wife was out shopping with the kids and ended up discovering a relatively new product; Jet Puffed Swirl Mallow Marshmallows. They thought they were intriguing and decided to buy a bag.
I didn’t have any of those marshmallows when they brought them home. I was going to, but just never got around to it and, by the time I remembered they even had them, they were gone. However, I happened to notice my wife bought a second bag of them. And, figuring that must have meant they were impressed with the Swirl Mallows, I decided to give them a try.
Unfortunately, even though my kids seem to like them, I honestly didn’t notice anything special about this product.
For those of you who haven’t seen Swirl Mallows before, they are marshmallows that have something else “swirled” in with them. The first time my wife bought these, I believe the bag she had picked up had caramel mixed in and the second bag was a mix of marshmallow and chocolate. In other words, they are marshmallows that contain things that people will sometimes put over marshmallows.
I’m not sure how much money my wife spent on these and don’t know if they were any more expensive than regular marshmallows. However, if she did spend more money on this particular variety, I do think she wasted it.
I’m not saying the Swirl Mallows were bad. In actuality, they were pretty good. But, when I say that, I mean they were as good as a normal Jet Puffed Marshmallow would be. In fact, I thought these tasted exactly like a regular marshmallow. I couldn’t taste the chocolate in them at all.
In fact, I’m pretty sure the only reason my kids liked these as much as they did is they both love marshmallows and would likely have eaten the entire bag and asked for more whether they had anything swirled into them or not.
If you come across these at your local store and they aren’t any more expensive than the regular marshmallows that are available, they might be worth giving a try so you can see if you have a different opinion regarding them. However, if they are more expensive, I don’t think they are a product that is worth wasting your money on simply because, if they do offer a different flavor, it isn’t noticeable enough to make them worth the extra money.
