Dandies Peppermint Marshmallows are a limited-edition holiday treat.
Dandies are all-natural, gelatin-free, vegan marshmallows. There’s no high fructose corn syrup or anything artificial: Cane sugar and tapioca syrup are used.
Vegan marshmallows taste just like conventional marshmallows, but tapioca starch is used instead of animal-based gelatin.
They are non-GMO and certified kosher pareve by CRC.

The Peppermint Marshmallows are available at conventional and natural grocers through January.
The History Off Marshmallows
Little Secrets is a new candy brand that creates versions of favorite newsstand candy* in better-for-you form.
The brand uses the highest quality ingredients, including Fair Trade Certified chocolate, sugar instead of corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors.
The candies have just the right level of sweetness—not the cloying, sugary taste of most newsstand candies.
For the holidays, these red and white bites have a chocolate peppermint center with a hard candy shell.
Eating them from the bag, add them to cookies, use them to garnish cakes and cupcakes, or create a holiday snack mix. (Include the Dandies Peppermint Marshmallows in that mix.)
The Little Secrets brand is available at Amazon, Peapod, Vitacost, Whole Foods and other stores nationwide.
*Newsstand candy is the category of mass-marketed individual candy, so-called because it’s sold at newsstands…and near store check-out registers and elsewhere. Newsstands used to be ubiquitous, where people went to pick up a candy bar. The category may need a new name!
