Once upon a time in December 2011, I was helping out at Caffex’s demo stand in a Whole Foods Market. Caffex is our sister company. They made the first truly delicious high energy snacks in the form of gourmet marshmallows! Imagine double coffee, espresso, chocolate, mocha, and tea in a mallow, to take wherever you go and keep you alert for hours when you need it most. No spilling. No scalding. All marshmallow goodness. Who can wish for anything more?
We have a video of CaffeMallows™, courtesy of Vat 19, with over 5.5 million views. Awesome❗️
All right, all right, back to the story: Sampling was proceeding apace and along with the compliments came the question: “Are these made with sugar?” from quite a few people. After a while June, Caffex’s marketing maven, turned to me and said: “Can you make marshmallows without sugar?”
Yes. There are marshmallows already, made with isomalt, specifically for diabetics. Isomalt is a sugar alcohol, composed of two simple sugars: glucose and mannitol. A good tasting sweetener - but it has one very significant drawback. It causes gastric distress, including flatulence and diarrhea. Yuck! That means you really cannot eat more than 1/2 to 1 1/2oz.
With isomalt out of the picture, our team labored long and hard - but, unsurprisingly never hungry - to develop our sinfully delicious CreamMallows™. How? With Sugarlesse™, our own natural sweetener. There are free recipes on the Sugarlesse™ website tor cooking, baking, and merrymaking, that I suggest you check out pronto. They are quick, sweet, and fun to follow!
