Magnificent from the start

The Magnificent Marshmallow Company is a small artisan company based in the idyllic Lake District.  It all started when I started making marshmallows as a treat for my husband Steven.  We get a giddy sense of satisfaction from seeking out new ingredients, trying out and making up new recipes and making others smile with our foodie offerings.  I didn’t want to make normal marshmallows so began experimenting with using fruits, oils, natural flavourings and high quality chocolate to add a contemporary twist to the nostalgic marshmallowy confection.  Steven thought they were scrumptious and friends thought they were delectable.  So alongside the day jobs, we decided to set out on a mission together to share marshmallow joy. 

Marshmallow creation as a home kitchen hobby progressed to us conjuring our sugary alchemy in a professional kitchen.  Days and sometimes nights are spent making mountains of marshmallows in small batches.  Marshmallow world has gone from strength to strength and we continue on our marshmallow joy sharing mission working closely with retailers and wholesalers to make our indulgent treats and glorious gifts available in farm shops, department stores, delis, gift shops, visitor destinations, garden centres and as inclusions for hampers.  We are also obsessed with art and design, and are fascinated by finding wondrous things in magnificent packages.  All our branding and packaging was influenced by our childhoods spent growing up by the seaside surrounded by the neon signs, illuminations and the kitsch of the circus, fairground and piers. 

We're not all about the marshmallows.  Our marshmallow fans would often tell us they loved a decadent drinking chocolate topped with a luscious melting mallowy layer.  We found many drinking chocolates to be overly sweet and insufficiently chocolatey, so for our latest tantalisingly tasty trick we conjured some intensely chocolatey drinks for discerning chocolate drinkers.  Our delicious chocolate drinks are made with sustainably sourced Colombian 100% cocoa, are vegan friendly and don't contain any refined sugar.  Our hot chocolatey comfort is available in 250g packs which make a great store cupboard staple or a thoughtful gift, and in catering sizes for coffee shops, cafes, hotels and food service settings.

For our main event

We went to our first artisan market in September 2013.  Friends had been telling us to sell our magnificent marshmallowy delights, so we gave it a try.  The day was a resounding success, the squidgy delicacies were snapped up, and so from there our mission to share marshmallow joy began.

Since then we have travelled far and wide, in all weathers, to attend food festivals, markets and events that celebrate artisan produce.  We've made foodie friends, have met thousands of marshmallow fans and converts, have gained loads of valuable feedback, have tweaked and refined our recipes and have conjured new flavours along the way.  As well as having had a lot of very, very early mornings.
