Kraft Jet-Puffed Peppermint Mini Mallows

Kraft Jet-Puffed Peppermint Mini MallowsKraft is always keeping up with special versions of marshmallows during different seasons. This year I spotted the Jet-Puffed Peppermint Mini Mallows at Target in the baking section. (I’m sure these have been around before.)

It seems like a pretty simple confection, which is largely the selling point. They’re pink swirled mini marshmallows, small enough for snacking or including in recipes

Mini Peppermint Jet-Puffed Marshmallows

They vary a little in size, but most are half inch cylinders.

They’re quite fresh, bouncy and light. There’s a dusting of corn starch on them, so they’re not sweet immediately, but a little chalky. The mint is mild, but fresh. There’s a light hint of the red food coloring aftertaste, if you’re one of those folks who can detect it. But for the most part, I liked them very much. I threw a handful in some hot chocolate and liked how creamy they melted and added that little minty touch without too much sweetness.

They’re an exceptionally good value. It was $1.00 for a large 10 ounce bag. That’s less than $2 a pound. They’re pretty spare on calories, 2/3 of a cup is only 100 calories and seems like a lot of candy. It’s a nice ingredient, something to use on cupcakes or in hot chocolate or just throw in a small bowl to keep around for kids to snack on without filling up. (Please watch small children with marshmallows and any small candies, as they are a choking hazard.)

  1. they also make a larger disc shaped peppermint marshmallow that they sell in larger bags.  the discs are just smaller than the diameter of a standard coffee/cocoa mug.  Kraft has sold these in Central NE for the last couple of years during the holiday season.

  2. I’m pretty certain that this is a new product.  I don’t remember seeing them on the shelves last year.

  4. Correction:  Kraft HAS done this in the past.  I was doing some cleaning over the weekend, and I found the bag from a previous year.  (I probably kept the bag for a recipe, but I’m not certain why.)  My mistake.
