A mouth full of marshmallows reminds humans of their happy childhood, while gently reminding clouds of what can happen if they drift too close to the ground. Get a mouthful of mouth clouds with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of handmade vegan marshmallows and treats from Sweet & Sara in Long Island City. This Groupon expires May 15, 2011 and is valid for pickup at Sweet & Sara's factory store or for online ordering.
Featured on programs such as Unwrapped, and The Rachael Ray Show, and lauded in publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings, Food Network Magazine and VegNews, Sweet & Sara's serves up creamy, gooey snacks that are 100% vegan. Explore the many uses of their gourmet gelatin-free marshmallows, such as dunking them in cocoa, eating them whole, or using them to childproof your cactus collection. Nab 16–18 of these downy delights in fetching flavors such as traditional vanilla, toasted coconut, and cinnamon pecan ($5.95/8.5 oz.). Or, take the flamework out of graham cracker-based construction with s'more marshmallows, available in original and peanut butter varietals ($3.95/3.5 oz.). When not harvesting heavenly fluff, Sweet & Sara's crafty confectionarians cull organic coconut macaroons ($4.99/5 oz.) from nature's most hidden fruit-meat, and synthesize rocky-road bark ($3.50/2.5 oz) using marshmallows and almonds that have been petrified into place by organic Belgian chocolate.
After 18 years of missing the sweet and crunchy smack of rice crispy treats, Sara Sohn set out to invent the world's first sans-animal product marshmallow. Today her angel bricks are sold all over the country and include none of the scrapple-like byproducts found in traditional store-bought sugar pillows. Sara's marshmallows should be kept in the refrigerator to ensure maximum freshness and minimal fights with smack-talking pantry snacks.
- There's no doubt that Sara Sohn has conquered the vegan marshmallow. Launching her business, Sweet & Sara, just five years ago, she now churns out gelatin-free marshmallows, s'mores, macaroons, and biscotti for stores around the country. – Colleen Holland, VegNews
