240sweet Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review a sampler of gourmet marshmallows from 240sweet.


About 240Sweet:
"Partners Alexa Lemley and Samantha Aulick hand-craft artisan treats in Columbus,Indiana. Originally,we made marshmallows to give to our
catering customers. Soon, people begin clamoring for more puffs. 240Sweet, a division of Lemleys’ Catering was born.
We craft our treats in small batches with local, all-natural and organic ingredients. First, we look for local foods to flavor the marshmallows. If we can’t find items locally, we make sure to use organic. We don’t use any preservatives, stabilizers, artificial colors or artificial flavors. 240Sweet treats include Michigan beet sugar, Ohio glucose and Indiana corn starch. We use organic Tahitian beans to make our own vanilla extract.
Our customers often comment on the minimal packaging of our treats. Since there isn’t an outer box, no resources are wasted. The ribbon across the top of the bag is made in the United States and is the greenest option available to reclose the packaging. The labels are printed just a few miles from our kitchen.
During January 2011, 240sweet will donate $0.50 for each Marshmallow of the Month (MOM) bag sold to Seeds of Help. Coffee Chocolate Chip, the MOM, was created by 240sweet Executive Chef Alexa Lemley with Walter and Stacy Able of Seeds of Help. “I combined Guatemalan coffee and fair-trade chocolate chips to celebrate the flavors of South America. Even though it is cold in Indiana, I feel warmer just making these Coffee Chocolate Chip puffs to benefit others,” says Chef Alexa.
Coffee Chocolate Chip puffs are available on the 240sweet webstore, at various retail locations, and through the Marshmallow of the Month Club. All three flavors in the 240sweet Marshmallow of the Month Club shipment for January 2011 include flavors inspired by Latin American cuisine: Banana with Cinnamon; Roasted Pineapple and Mango; Coffee Chocolate Chip."

What we thought: This was our first experience with gourmet marshmallows and we were definitely impressed. If you have a sweet tooth, 240Sweet treats will satisfy your craving. The variety of flavors at 240sweet covers a lot of ground. No matter what your tastebuds enjoy, you are sure to find something to fit every palate. There are, of course, the traditional sweet varieties(Cherry Chocolate Chip, Bananas Foster, etc.) sweet and salty mixes(Maple Bacon and Toffee, Salty Caramel Swirl, etc.) spicy blends(Chai Spice, Chocolate Chipolte, etc.) and even savory choices(Chicken, Red Bean and Sesame) You will really be surprised by the regularly updated selection of marshmallows at 240sweet. The marshmallows are just as pretty to look at as they are yummy and they come beautifully wrapped. Whether you are a first-timer like us or a marshmallow connoisseur, you will really enjoy the treats at 240sweet:) ABCD Diaries gives 240Sweet an A+!
