We’ve seen doughnut shops…and fro yo spots…and pudding places…but here is a spot that sells just marshmallows. Squish Marshmallows on St. Marks churns out batches of unique hand-cut ‘mallows that make for such a sweet treat.
The space is mostly white…like a marshmallow. Honestly, the space seems larger than it needs to be. You don’t really need much room to sit and eat a marshmallow. You can eat one while you stand in line and the rest you’ll likely take to go. That said, they do have some great coffee/hot chocolate toppers so it’s a great alternative to meeting a friend at Starbucks.
I was loving their flavor selection. All flavors come as regular or chocolate-coated. For the regulars, you have the option of getting them torched on the spot for that campfire goodness. I decided to get three so I could try each style. I first chose a gingerbread that I had toasted and ate on the spot. To go, I got a plain pb&j and a chocolate covered banana pudding. Every single flavor was great. I think the pb&j would have been great toasted though so the peanut butter chips could get a bit melty – I would actually recommend that for any flavor that has any sort of chocolate chip in it.
Not only do these marshmallows look cute, they taste fabulous. I also happen to think they make a great gift. Try bringing these instead of a bottle of wine next time you go over to a friend’s place. Or just get them for yourself. Stick one on a skewer and hold over the burner of your stove to take your homemade smores to the next level.
