About us

We are an award winning London-based company bringing you luxury handmade marshmallows with a French twist.  

Did you know that marshmallows were sacred to the Ancient Egyptians? They were given as offerings to the Gods and Pharoahs. They used the sap from the mallow plant which grew along the Nile to thicken their sweet delicacies. The same technique was then adopted by the French in the 19th century and evolved into the delicious sweet we know today. We have perfected our recipe to bring you the most deliciously tasty marshmallows you have ever tried. All of our gourmet marshmallows are handmade in our London kitchens, using the finest ingredients in a unique range of delicious and exciting flavours. We keep our production process in-house, lovingly preparing each gourmet marshmallow by hand.  

The three most important elements of a perfect marshmallows are freshness, texture and taste. We create the lightest and fluffiest gourmet marshmallows. Our marshmallows are totally fresh which means they retain their moisture creating a soft and cloud-like texture. They melt in your mouth, leaving just the amazing taste for you to savour. Fresh marshmallows are so amazing - a real taste experience.
