Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites

I bought this bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites at the dollar store because they had a big “New” banner. I don’t think there are other mass-market “milk chocolate covered miniature marshmallows” out there.

Opening the stand-up, resealable bag unleashed a strong and sweet milk chocolate scent that reminded me of a milk chocolate Hershey’s bar.┬áThe chocolate that covered the miniature marshmallows was similarly sweet and Hershey’s milk chocolate-like.

The chocolate cracked around the marshmallows when I squished them or bit into them. Its melt was grainy and carried a slight sour tinge.

The marshmallows were soft and pillowy with a neutral sweetness. I love jet-puffed marshmallows when they’re warm and toasted to bring out their caramel notes, but just plain puffy sugar doesn’t do anything for me, so I didn’t find these to be terribly exciting.

I’m not sure what these Mallow Bites are supposed to be for. They’re too sweet for just plain snacking, and I think they’d melt into a gooey mess as baking mix-ins.┬áMaybe they’d be good in snack mixes?

I think my favorite part about the Mallow Bites was the big CHOKING WARNING on the back instructing us to Eat one at a time. Don’t be gluttonous!

An O because they’re reasonably tasty, but they’re too sweet, and I don’t really get what they’re going for.

  • I believe JustBorn has something called “Peepsters” which I believe are mini marshmallows covered in chocolate. I haven’t found them anywhere to purchase yet, though (and the Product Finder on their website says there’s none within 100 miles of me) so I don’t know how prevalent they are!

  • Rodzilla – not a bad idea! Though they’re the miniature size, so super tiny.

    Kelly – Just Born was giving out Peepsters at Sweets and Snacks. I’ll see if I can find mine when I get back from break

    When the negative thoughts come your way, and they will I promise, counteract them with your positive truisms.
