I’ve written about our love for Freedom Mallows before but they contacted me recently to ask if I’d like to check out their new packaging as they’ve just had a re-branding of their image. The company has said goodbye to their rabbits (Freddie and Fiona) and introduced a rather cool looking Sloth as their mascot. The packaging is now bright, colourful and inviting (it was a little bland and cute previously).
If you’ve never heard of Freedom Mallows before they are vegetarian, vegan, gluten fee, egg and dairy free and absolutely delicious. Many people don’t realised that normal marshmallows aren’t vegetarian (they contain gelatin) and we’ve often had them offered to the children. When we discovered Freedom Mallows, we could finally introduce the kids to them and unsurprisingly they absolutely loved them.
MissB is currently doing a session of “forest school” at school, with the final session involving toasting marshmallows over a campfire. Our latest delivery from Freedom Mallows has been timed perfectly as we will be sending in supplies so that even the vegetarian children can enjoy the experience too! MissB is rather proud of the fact that we can supply the school with vegetarian marshmallows!
Freedom Mallows come in regular size (which is slightly smaller than the traditional sized non-veggie marshmallows you can buy) and mini sized. Each 75g bag costs approximately £2.50 which is a little on the expensive side but as a treat, I don’t mind paying that to make sure my children (and myself) don’t miss out on enjoying marshmallows! Regular sized Freedom Mallows are available in 3 options, Vanilla (white), Vanilla (yellow) and Strawberry (pink) whilst the mini Freedom Mallows are available in white or a mixed bag of pink and white (all vanilla flavoured). They still have the same amazing taste that we loved in our previous review, just a much more appealing packaging.
The mini Freedom Mallows are perfect for topping off a nice hot chocolate – which is just what is needed after a cold school run at this time of year. They are also great for baking, with our last batch I baked these Chocolate and Marshmallow Cupcakes which tasted divine. If we have any freedom mallows left once the kids have finished raiding my stash then I might have to bake another batch. Of course I’m saving some for our Christmas Eve Hampers to go with their hot chocolate in a mug.
You can buy Freedom Mallows online at their website or in a few select stores such as Holland and Barrett and Harvey Nichols. We love Freedom Mallows here and think they’ve done a great job with their re-branding – it looks fab!
