Sweet and Sara or Dandies?<br><br><br>
Because if I'm going to buy a $5 bag of marshmallows + shipping, I don't want marshmallows that taste like rubber >.<

Sweet and Sara are really, really good! I have never had Dandies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"> So I didn't vote...didn't seem fair. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

DANDIES! By far. Sweet and Sara have to be refrigerated and aren't as regular marshmallow-like as Dandies. VegNews has them for a good price, no shipping cost.

So how does the taste compare with the omni marshmallows? Also, do they melt, like to roast over a fire or make into rice crispy treats? I wish common marshmallows at the store were already vegan and only some had gelatin, because I hate shipping costs and all that, too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I agree. I like sweet and sara and I had a pretty good packaged s'more thing from them but dandies are definitely more authentic. The saras are too dense while the dandies are nice and puffy—I only wish they were closer in size to omni marshmallows. The halfway between a regular marshmallow and a mini marshmallow thing is a bit odd. They're also a bit pricey so I've only bought them a couple of times.

I like Dandies the best but for s'mores I find S&S to be better. I used the cinnamon pecan ones for a s'mores at a fire pit recently and they were delicious.

I've only had sweet and sara, which were good but I agree with what the others say in that they were very dense and very sweet, and not what you'd typically think of as a marshmallow. IMO they're nicer than typical marshmallows, but then I've never been a mashmallow fan!<br><br>
I only bought them once, and made a silly mistake of doing so right before christmas, so I ate half and forgot about them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> and they went hard and horrible by the time I'd remembered!<br><br>
Is there a site you can buy both from ? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

OMG, I just did the same thing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I ate the big ones, but I bought the minis, over the winter, for hot chocolate and I just threw them out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Holy Shiiiiite! Pangea (<a href="http://www.veganstore.com" target="_blank">www.veganstore.com</a>) has a nice variety of both Sweet and Sara and Dandies!<br>
I have actually had the S&S toasted coconut and S'mores...they were both very yummy.<br>
I am anxious to try the Dandies since they are lighter and fluffier...I agree that S&S are quite dense.<br>
Someone is going to be doing some major online ordering...see ya in a bit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

They were like gold to me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I brought them back from San Diego and would take nibbles, but I was waiting to use them for something cool like S'Mores and it just didn't happen.

Me Neither! Hence this post...<br><br><br><br>
I'm going to have to change that for hot cocoa season, though!
