Marvellous Medicine

Marshmallows originated in ancient Egypt over 2000 years ago and were originally used for what might be the most delicious medicine ever. Over time, even greeks and romans indulged in marshmallows to remedy their sore throats! These marvellously medicinal marshmallows had a different recipe to the sweet treats we enjoy today, apparently using honey to form a kind of paste!

Back to Their Roots

The marshmallows of way back when, were made with the roots of a plant called… Marshmallow! Egyptians first discovered the plant’s medicinal qualities and transformed it into the remedy. This recipe was used all the way through to the 19th century.

Exciting Experimentation

In late 19th century France, marshmallow creators began experimenting with a range of recipes and introduced the use of egg whites and cornstarch. Marshmallows have continued to inspire experimentation through to the present day.

The marshmallow has come a long way from its medicinal beginnings and today we add our very own unique twists of course...
