“There’s gold in dem hills!” That set off a stampede of miners to break their backs and sift for those precious nuggets. And now…we eat them. How times have changed. “There’s gold in dem..marshmallows?” Oh how puzzled those miners would be.
Wondermade, makers of gourmet marshmallows such as fancy bourbon marshmallows, now bring you Gold Champagne Marshmallows ($24). They take champagne-flavored marshmallows and then dip them into 24 karat gold. Wow, that’s pretty tasty and decadent. Decadently tasty if you will. Perhaps we should trade gold reserves for marshmallow reserves. The world would be a much better place.
