Gather ‘round the campfire and enjoy this sticky sweet treat National Toasted Marshmallow Day on August 30th. Created by the National Confectioners Association

Marshmallows date all the way back to Ancient Egypt where the mallow plant’s sap was mixed with nuts and honey to make candy. The plant is a type of flower that, somewhat obviously, grows in marshes. It was long used as a flavoring ingredient for marshmallows, but today, mostly synthetic alternatives are used. 

Our modern version of the marshmallow was developed in France during the 19th century. Egg whites, sugar, water, and the eponymous flavoring from the marshmallow root extract are whipped to create an airy candy. 

Since then, many brands of marshmallows have dropped the traditional flavor source as well as the eggs in order to create a vegan-friendly product, but it is still important to check the label to see if there are any eggs in your marshmallows. 

So whether you like yours just ever so slightly kissed by the flames, evenly golden brown, or burnt beyond all recognition, be sure to build a fire and toast to this delectable treat on August 30th for National Toasted Marshmallow Day.
