This company makes dipped and undipped versions in Chocolate, Mocha, Orange, Raspberry and Vanilla. We tried Undipped Chocolate, Undipped Vanilla and Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows - TuccelliDipped Mocha Marshmallows. The Undipped Vanilla and Chocolate varieties are roughly 1-3/8 inches square by 1 inch tall; the Dipped Mocha Marshmallows are about 1-1/2 inches square by 1-1/8 inches tall. The Undipped Vanilla is my favorite, featuring a very strong vanilla flavor that would be just the thing melted onto the top of a warm brownie with fudge sauce, for instance. (See Serving Suggestions in Part I of this article.) The Undipped Chocolate looks pretty, as it’s rolled in cocoa powder that contrasts nicely with their white interior. The chocolate flavoring is provided by an extract; I didn’t find enough chocolate flavor to suit me. The Dipped Mocha Marshmallow (enrobed in Callebaut chocolate) has a very light coffee taste, which is somewhat overwhelmed by the chocolate coating. These marshmallows fall into a unique textural category, very like a fluffy nougat, a consistency I happen to love. The Vanilla Dipped are dipped in white chocolate.

Whole Foods Market

The store sells marshmallows under its own brand name. The Chocolate marshmallow is made in Chocolate Marshmallowscubes of just under one inch square, with a good chocolate flavor. The Natural Vanilla is slightly larger, about 1-1/4 inches, and has a very good vanilla taste. It’s a chewier—style in fact, the Vanilla is much chewier than other artisan marshmallows we tried. Whole Foods also sells marshmallows under the Tiny Trapeze brand, a NIBBLE favorite artisan company which was then acquired by Whole Foods (chocolate Tiny Trapeze marshmallows shown at right).
