Kraft Jet Puffed Marshmallows – Pumpkin Spice

Posted in Confectionaries

Hello friends! First I must apologize for my unannounced absence yesterday. I drove home super early from my moms house and went immediately to a photoshoot. By the time I got home, uploaded the pictures to my computer, started resizing and post processing I was beat. I laid down for what felt like just a minute but I was out cold. SO! To make up for leaving you guys hangin’ I have two reviews for you tonight!

I bet you thought since Halloween and Thanksgiving were over, that would be the last of pumpkin spice _________. WRONG. I spotted these Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows at Walmart and decided to give them a go.

Kraft has really tried to up the ante on their marshmallow game with the introduction of flavors like German chocolate cake, coconut, mint chocolate, etc. I can’t say that all of these incarnations have been successful, but I commend Kraft for trying something different. I am a lover of most things pumpkin spice, so I was excited to try these out. When I opened the bag I was greeted with the overly sweet marshmallow smell mixed with a slight tinge of nutmeg and cinnamon. To get festive, they made them into tiny pumpkin shapes, which kind of looked a little wonky. I popped a few in my mouth and was slightly underwhelmed by the lack of bold pumpkin spice flavoring. The taste of the mallow really watered down the festive spices.

Texture: 3/5 – These had the expected sponginess of a normal marshmallow.

Smell: 3/5 – These smell mildly festive, but for the most part it’s just the powdered sugar punching though.

Appearance: 3/5 – I appreciate what Kraft was trying to do with the pumpkin shape, but I feel like the normal cylinder shape would have sufficed, these pumpkins are a little sad looking.

Taste: 3/5 – Of the pumpkin spice flavored things I have tried, these would rank in the B category. They are good, but they are not overly exciting. The pumpkin spices are not nearly as prevalent as one would expect. I am also curious what their purpose is outside of being a snack. Could you toast these? That might be weird.

    Tr microwaving them for a few seconds. It makes the intended flavor come out more, at least it did in the cinnamon roll mallows they came out with.
