It only took 25years for somebody to capitalize on this… but hey, who are we to judge? At least they took the time to do it right! Our amigos at thinkgeek.com introduce to the world Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows ($20). Described as delicate, delicious and caffeinated… these are a bad-ass addition to the campfire Smores or plunged into a steaming hot mug of hot cocoa. Of course, I’m a big fan of snacking on the occasional marshmallow straight from the container too… but we can’t do that too often now can we (without looking like that dude on the box)?
These look like a nice-n-tasty afternoon snack no matter how you prepare it, and something I’m going to toss 20-bones at to try out (We’ll let you know how it goes). Packing 100mg of caffeine into each marshmallow, these just might be a nice replacement for that afternoon brown-tar pick-me-up. If you notice us a little jittery… you’ll know why.
UPDATE – We got our box and looooooooved theeeeeem!!!! Fantastically tasty, mouthwateringly plump n’ soft and packed with quite the ZING… these little bastards rocked my world. And recomend you take the plunge into the Stay Puft world for your mallow fix too!
