To adapt comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s famous line, marshmallows don’t get no respect. At least in the world of fine confections.

That’s because most of us are only familiar with the tough, cottony supermarket variety of marshmallows.

But there’s a world of excitement out there: gourmet marshmallows so airy and flavorful that they’ve replaced chocolate as our favorite after-dinner treat, and as an accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee.

Today’s gourmet marshmallows are made by confectioners who are the marshmallow equivalent to top chocolatiers.

And you can get marshmallows in just about any flavor—even savory ones, like chicken and beef (we didn’t taste those, but we did try bacon-topped marshmallows).

Consider putting bags of fine marshmallows in your Easter basket this year.
