Yesterday while grocery shopping my mom and I saw a bag of enormous marshmallows, which prompted a craving to eat them in her mind and a craving to make them in my mind. Thus, I purchased some gelatin and whipped these babies up! She's a huge coconut nut, so I used that version.
The process got me thinking, though; are marshmallows really just sugar Jell-o, frothed into a frenzy? I think they are, which seems like an odd concept.
In other news, the good thing of the day (another stellar grocery purchase):
Diet A&W cream soda.
So I suppose the theme here is sugary vanilla items.
