Are you a marshmallow lover? Then get excited! On Friday August the 30th, it’s National Marshmallow day, formally known as National Marshmallow Toasting Day!
National Marshmallow day happens annually on August 30th. Marshmallows are a social treat perfect for luncheons as well as nights by the bonfire.
Marshmallows are especially delicious when toasted because the spongy texture transforms into a soft, sticky texture sweet to the taste.
Toasted Marshmallow treats are perfect summer and cold season treats. But where did marshmallows originate?
About the History of Marshmallows
Marshmallows come from the marshmallow plant also known as the Althea Officinalis. Marshmallow plants originated from Africa where Egyptians used them for healing purposes.
By the 19th century, French explorers transformed the sticky treat into a fluffy treat that includes egg whites, water, sugar, and marshmallow root (now substituted with gelatin).
Now marshmallows are used in all kinds of ways – from dipped chocolate marshmallow to sweet potato casserole.
Marshmallows can be served from slightly toasted to perfectly crisp on the outer layer.
