The Marshmallow has Officially "Made It": Say Hello to Malvi
We have a confession. We have a sweet tooth. Recently we made s'mores (graham cracker sandwich of Hershey's chocolate and melted marshmallow), and we shared a picture on Instagram (@TheZNC). We have our friend and fellow "In the Midfielder", Catherine, to thank for commenting on our picture and introducing us to Malvi, a marshmallow confectionery based in Atlanta. As Catherine said, we needed some gourmet marshmallows in our lives. We sure did. Meet the bite-size, molten, sugar fluff cube that is going to make you happy.
The story behind the brand is great. Laura was a research and development chef in NYC when, in her own words, she came up with, "the first magenta, tangy-sweet, raspberry hibiscus marshmallow and sandwiched it between two dark chocolate shortbread cookies." Brilliant! The creative flavors and clean ingredients set this delightful treat apart. Laura's husband, Paris, came up with the name - Malvi, which is short for Malvavisco, the Spanish word for marshmallow.
When Laura sent us a sampler of Malvi, we were ecstatic. We couldn't decide what flavor we loved the most, although Raspberry Hibiscus and Chocolate disappeared first! They were the perfect complement to our afternoon espresso. We also warmed them up a week after receiving them. Still delicious! (They stay fresh for 12 weeks after you receive them.) The Spiked Espresso, Vanilla Salted Caramel and Peppermint Chocolate surprise your taste buds and send you on a marshmallow gastronomical journey. Yes, that's possible. (There is also Red Velvet and Pumpkin Ginger.)
Throwing a special party? Malvi can do a custom order and ship it to you. And, you can order your Malvi for delivery in the U.S. or internationally. Did we mention Oprah loves Malvi too?

Watch out cupcake, the Malvi is coming for you, and it definitely has "the right fluff". (Full Disclosure: We borrowed the clever "fluff" line from the Malvi website!). #TeamMalvi
Thank you to Laura for gifting In the Midfield with a delightful Malvi sampler. We send our marshmallow love to you and your delicious company.
