Janet Thompson had never really been a fan of marshmallows, but then again, she’d only ever tasted the pink and white variety. She had always loved cake mixture! Therefore, when thinking what she could take in for her students as a treat for their efforts in the classroom it had to be something she wouldn’t eat. Janet thought there’d be no chance of me becoming a marshmallow fan… But how wrong I was! Knowing they were a success she began experimenting with different flavours. One of the first marshmallow flavours perfected was Gin. She took the pillowy white cubes, together with a few other varieties of marshmallows, into work for her colleagues and they were an instant hit! And so, Grown Up Marshmallows was born. Once Janet had given up her full time teaching job to focus on my marshmallow making, she found her passion was perfecting gourmet marshmallows. She loved the challenge of making a naturally flavoured ‘perfect mallow’ that was firm but yet soft to the touch, light and fluffy on the tongue and full of fresh fruit and flavour. Here was a truly ‘grown-up’ treat, a quality product with seductive appeal. And from then on, the rest is history.
