Frankford Marshmallow Hearts

imageI don’t actually have much to say about these Marshmallow Hearts except that I was surprised and pleased, especially after the tragically untasty experience of the SpongeBob SquarePants Yogurt Covered Raisins last week (also made by Frankford).

I didn’t realize that these were made by the same company, which is probably a good thing. And now Frankford has redeemed itself in my book and is no longer a “bad candymaker” and only an “uneven candymaker” ... one more in either direction and my opinion will be cemented.

imageOne of the best things about these marshmallows was the price: 79 cents on sale. This makes them, per ounce, about the same price as Jet Puffed, but far cuter.

I’m not a huge consumer of plain marshmallows, but I have to say that these are adorable and just the right size (about 2/3 the size of a regular marshmallow). A few of these floating at the top of a cup of hot cocoa seems like it’d be a nice way for a parent to give some unconditional love or a sweetheart to give you a little unexpected treat.

They’re vanilla flavored, not strawberry (as I feared before I read the package). They are pink on the outside, so there is some food coloring in there, and yes, it does have a slight bitter aftertaste for me. If you’re not one who’s prone to that, then hey, no problem for you. I didn’t notice it at all when combined with hot cocoa, just when eating them by themselves. I preferred them a little stale, so they were chewy on the outside but still soft inside.

Note: Made in Israel ... however the package doesn’t rate them as Kosher.

  1. Oh, I’m so glad you reviewed these.  I saw them recently (I can’t remember if it was at Walgreen’s or Dollar Tree) and almost bought them by virtue of their cuteness, alone, not imagining that they might taste good.
    I love that they’re made in Israel. I’m picturing a little marshmallow factory on a kibbutz somewhere in the desert.  So random.  Maybe they’ll be on sale on the 15th!

  2. Are these the same company that make the marshmellow ducks? I always wanted to try them but thought they’d be some awful flavour. Might have to check out Big W.

  3. LOL I just finished complaining to a friend and blogging about City Bakery’s hot chocolate festival.  The bakery’s handmade marshmallows are so hugely gluttonous and the hot chocolate is like pure chocolate soup. I generally leave the marshmallow at the bottom of my cup, I think I like these heart shaped ones…

  5. I purchased the leather jacket, boxers and 2 denim valentine boxes from Frankford Candy for my kids.  3 out of the 4 boxes were no good.  The milk chocolate was white and cracked and some were melted to the package. It looked old like it was left over from last year. Needless to say my kids were disappointed.  I bought another brand 2 days after the 14th on clearance and they were 1/2 the price and not spoiled.  I’ll never buy Frankford Candy product again. I’ve sent emails to them with pics and so far no response.
