The Best Vegan Marshmallows You Need To Buy Right Now
by Laura Barns
If I could write about nothing but vegan marshmallows all day, I definitely would. And yep, I've managed to talk about them in a few blog articles like this guy, and this one. But now it's time to dedicate a WHOLE post to the little, fluffy pillows of happiness.
Because I don't like to brag, but if it's a marshmallow and it's vegan, I've probably (read: definitely) tried it. So here is a roundup of my favourites, and I'd love to hear if I've missed any in the comments. Seriously. I need this.

Plant Kitchen Vanilla Marshmallows
My love for M&S and their Plant Kitchen range will never die. As soon as they brought these bad boys out, I practically ran to my local M&S to pick up 10 bags. They were sold out, and it was a really difficult day that I thought I should share with you. But when I finally did get to try them, I can 100% confirm they are LIFE changing. Go Go Go.

The OG of vegan marshmallows definitely deserves a high spot on this list. They're a great gateway marshmallow for getting you through a transition from regular marshmallows to plant-based ones (just me?) as they're so light, sweet but not sickly, and are available in lots of stores, like Sainsbury's and Holland & Barrett.

Dandies Vegan Marshmallows
If all these little, delicate marshmallows are all well and good, but you're just really craving a gigantic one that requires both hands to hold, Dandies are the ones for you. They're the most reminiscent of American-style s'more marshmallows that are just begging to be toasted around a campfire, and sandwiched between biscuits and chocolate. As they're from Chicago, they're a wee bit harder to get hold of, but they're usually in stock on Amazon and other specific vegan online supermarkets.
