Lulu Bananas Gourmet Marshmallows Review and Giveaway

Founded in 2012, Lulu Bananas is a small gourmet marshmallow company based in California that all started with a sign that said "Money Can't Buy Happiness, But It Can Buy Marshmallows, Which Are Kinda The Same Thing." Loving sweets, this sign made Jill Blutinger think about how happy marshmallows made her and she wanted to share those smiles with others. And don't you just love the name Lulu Bananas? The inspiration for the name came from Jill's nephew who called himself Lulu Bananas when he was around 3 years old. Cute right? At Lulu Bananas, they believe that marshmallows don't just belong in hot cocoa or s'mores, but are perfect for any occasion or just a sweet treat for yourself at the end of the day. Their marshmallows are made in small batches so they are constantly rotating and trying new flavors. They also come in a variety of colors. If you happen to be looking for something special, you can contact them and they'll do their best to try to accommodate. Sweet and savory flavors are available and can be customized for individual restaurants, stores or events.

I was recently given the opportunity to try a sample of bubble gum flavored Lulu Bananas gourmet marshmallows.The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag was the amazing bubble gum scent. I can't help but remember a more candid time in my life when I smell bubble gum so it made me happy and a little nostalgic right away. Okay, enough with the sappy talk. I didn't think that marshmallows could get any softer but Lulu Bananas has managed to make the softest marshmallow I have ever felt. The bubble gum flavor marshmallows are packed full of flavor. They taste as if I've been chewing a big piece of pink bubblegum. The marshmallows are decently sized (1 x 1 inch squares) and perfect for snacking so I appreciate the fact that they come in a resealable package. I like to enjoy them as a sweet treat when I get home from work, after dinner, or before bed when I get a craving for something sweet but don't want to overdo it. They are also topped with a light powder sugar as well for some added sweetness, which can be a bit messy if you are not careful. Other current flavors include chai tea, tangerine, vanilla, peppermint, harvest spice, and green apple and you can order Lulu Bananas Gourmet Marshmallows on Amazon. As an added bonus, Lulu Bananas marshmallows are gluten free and fat free. I can pronounce the names of all the ingredients used to make Lulu Bananas marshmallows, which include sugar, light corn syrup, water, gelatin, powdered sugar, cornstarch, flavor oil, soft gel paste, and vanilla. Lulu Bananas Gourmet Marshmallows are fun to eat and they would make a great addition to a holiday gift basket as well.
