Anyway, I wondered what else I didn't know about the world of marshmallows, so I did a little Googling. I learned that first the marshmallows were actually made from the root of the marshmallow plant and were used to treat sore throats. I also learned that along with the flat marshmallows, there are mini ones, fruity ones, chocolate ones, and just about every other size and shape you can imagine. In addition, I discovered that the world record for stacking regular size marshmallows with chopsticks is five and I found a recipe for making marshmallow peeps.
Despite all of this new found knowledge, I continue to hold onto the one thing I know for sure. Marshmallows are one of the best highly processed foods out there--as long as they are used on s'mores.
