Product of the Week: Flat marshmallows

Kraft just announced its newest product: Jet-Puffed StackerMallows. Apparently these are flat marshsmallows, "perfectly sized to fit a graham cracker for year-round s'mores."

Remember when s'mores were simple? Remember when you could do it with any ol' marshmallow, even a half-stale one that had been in the bottom of the camping gear since that rained-out Cub Scout trip six months ago? Remember when you could just cut a marshmallow in half or squish it really hard if you needed a flat marshmallow?

If you need them, StackerMallows will be $1.69 for an 8-ounce bag and will be available in stores in June.

Wow! Seems to me the old ones work just fine. They fit on a stick nicely to be roasted and then flatten out nicely to the size of your graham cracker when smashed in between with some chocolate. Craziness!

I used these as the "icing" on mini-cupcakes this week. I cut each one to a circle with a little biscuit cutter, placed them on top of my already baked cupcakes, & put them in the broiler(~30 seconds).
I tried regular marshmallows too & they were just too big & silly.

I didn't even know that I needed these, but apparently, I did.

Can someone out there tell me where I can find the flat marshmallows in Cincinnati, Fairfield, Hamilton, Ohio areas? I've looked everywhere!! If these were available in stores in June, this is August and I'm still looking! These sound awesome to me! I love the idea of "icing" for cupcakes. Anonymous
