The conventional ‘pink and white’ marshmallows taste sickly-sweet, bland and boring when you compare them to ‘The Marshmallow Lady’s’ home-made Marshmallows. I couldn’t believe the difference when I first made mine. So much so, it inspired me to share the experience and ‘The Marshmallow Lady’ was born. I have a range of different flavours, ranging from the innovative ‘Key Lime Pie’ (with a biscuit base!) to ‘Raspberry’ Marshmallows which have just been awarded 2-stars from the ‘Great Taste Awards’.
Come and visit ‘The Marshmallow Lady’ shop at 14 Rodney Street, EH7 4EA. Opening hours are as follows:
Monday & Tuesday – Closed
Sunday: CLOSED (Find me at Stockbridge Market 10-5)
I use Fair Trade sugar, Scottish butter & cream and Scottish berries in my Marshmallows. I also used recycled and recyclable packaging. The majority of the Marshmallows are not only delicious but gluten-free, dairy free and low-fat!
“Nicole Roberts’ hand-made, feather-light delights are examples of the fresh thinking and dedication to quality that creates more than just a passing fad. With recipes created with good Scottish ingredients such as butter, milk, eggs and soft fruit, as well as fairtrade sugar, Roberts has taken the term ‘handmade’ at its most literal. Everything is made from scratch” – The List
I also have special Marshmallows for different Seasons and occasions. So be sure to check back often for special flavours and amazing offers!
‘The Marshmallow Lady’ – Classic Range:
A sample of the flavours available are described below, there are so many more in the shop, so click on the online store to see the full range of flavours.
Vanilla bean: Real vanilla bean and vanilla extract is used to infuse a seriously aromatic take on the old fashioned “pink and white”
Raspberry: We use the best berries in season to give an experience similar to that of a fresh home-made yoghurt smoothie only sweeter and with the mallow texture.
Key Lime Pie: An interesting twist on this classic dessert. A crumbly biscuit base combined with a bitter-sweet lime mallow. Freshly squeezed Lime juice and topped with crystallised lime zest.
Millionaires’ Shortbread: An experience to be had. Subtle creamy notes give way to the sweet buttery texture of shortbread finished off with the rich chocolate and caramel of the real millionaire shorty.
Lemon Meringue: A light, refreshing citrus treat with a lovely zing to it. Made with Freshly squeezed lemons and zest.
Beer: Yes, you read that right. Beer Marshmallows are a revelation! Using the delicious ‘Innis & Gunn Rum Cask’ Beer these Marshmallows have to be tried to be fully appreciated.
