SmashMallow Review: Marshmallows only Healthier

SmashMallow Review: Marshmallows only Healthier

A Fun and Flavorful Spin on Marshmallows and Crispy Rice Treats

There’s nothing like a big fluffy marshmallow to help float me back into the past of carefree days and fun-loving adventures with my brothers and friends. That is until I remember all of the nasty ingredients that a traditional marshmallow contains, and I slowly back away and gulp down a gallon of water. Thankfully, I recently discovered SmashMallow and their deliciously decadent marshmallow treats, so I can once again enjoy these nostalgic indulgences [that actually contain ingredients I can stand behind]!

For Moms, Moms-to-be & Toddlers 3+*

THE PRODUCT:

At SmashMallow, they believe living life in balance doesn’t have to be a juggling act, and that indulgent treats don’t have to be sinful. With simple and clean ingredients, smashingly delicious flavors, and convenient resealable packaging, they give you permission to transport your tastebuds and indulge, because you’ve earned it.

Made with Organic Cane Sugar, naturally Gluten-free and deliciously non-GMO ingredients, SmashMallows are a tastier spin on the marshmallows you remember as a kid. Fluffy, sweet and available in a wide variety of flavors, SmashMallow is a premium snacking marshmallow that is anything but ordinary! They also have SmashCrispy treats, which are also a better-for-you reinvention of the classic American favorite.

SmashMallows are available in 8 tantalizing flavors, including: Cinnamon Churro, Coconut Pineapple, Cookie Dough, Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed, Mint Chocolate Chip, Mocha Chip, Root Beer Float and Strawberries & Cream. Their SmashCrispy line also comes in 3 varieties, including: Cinnamon Churro, Strawberries & Cream and Mint Chocolate Chip.

NUTRITION-WISE:

As mentioned, SmashMallows are made with Organic Cane Sugar, are naturally Gluten-free and are non-GMO Certified. They are also Dairy-free and Soy-free, and free from Corn Syrup, Artificial Coloring, Artificial Flavoring and Preservatives. They also don’t contain any carrageenan (the only way to make a fluffy vegan mallow). This is due to its adverse gastrointestinal effects, meaning that unfortunately, SmashMallow And SmashCrispy are not Vegan at this time. However, they do use Certified Kosher non-GMO Bovine Gelatin to make their delicious snacks and treats.

Coming it at around 80 calories and less than 1 gram of fat (on average) per 4-piece serving, SmashMallow is a premium snacking marshmallow that is anything but ordinary! SmashCrispies are also much better for you than their more famous counterparts, coming in around 130 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 2g of protein and 9g of sugar in each individually packaged bar, compared to the 150 calories and 12g of sugar (as well as dairy, soy, malt and artificial flavors) that you will find in the other Crispy Rice Treats.

And while I’m not going to claim that either SmashMallow or SmashCrispy are good-for-you, they are great alternatives to other sweet treats because of their better-for-you natural ingredients. Although still considered an ‘indulgence,’ it’s comparatively much healthier than the same amount of ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, or brownies. *Plus, you don’t have to give your children a whole serving (or even yourself for that matter)! One SmashMallow is more than enough to satisfy a child and I only give my kids ½ a SmashCrispy at a time, for an indulgent treat that we all feel good about it.

WHERE TO BUY:

You can purchase SmashMallow products directly from their Online Store, or visit their Store Locator to find the retail location nearest you.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Who didn’t enjoy their fair share of big fluffy marshmallows back in the day, or a delicious homemade crispy rice treat every now and again?! I know I sure did! However, it’s been a long time since I’ve indulged in them, mainly because the ingredients are not my cup any longer, and I really try to avoid anything that isn’t at least a little healthy ;).

While I have made my own crispy rice style treats, and have had a vegan marshmallow or two on rare occasion, it’s nice to have some nostalgic, pre-made options that can be a go-to when the craving strikes! And that is just what SmashMallow is!

A wistful sweet pick-me-up for anytime-of-day, these guilt-free indulgences allow you to enjoy flavorful marshmallow-type treats – only better! Available in multiple flavors SmashMallow and SmashCrispy products really do help to satisfy those sweet cravings – whether you prefer to eat them alone or add them into a recipe to elevate it into something spectacular! Plus, at only 20 calories per delicious non-GMO puff, SmashMallow is a sweet-tooth satisfying snack you don’t have to feel remorseful about.

{As a side note, SmashMallow and SmashCrispy should be kept below 80 degrees for an optimal snacking experience, and are sensitive to sun and hot temperatures. After opening a bag of SmashMallows, it’s best to keep them in the fridge for prolonged shelf life, or store all of SmashMallow’s treats in there, unopened, if it’s super hot out, to avoid melting and spoilage.}

Looking for a nostalgic treat that not only tastes better, but is also better-for-you than the real thing?! Then you’ve got to try the products by SmashMallow! Because it’s those small steps that make healthy living a lifestyle – so why not take one today?!
