Re: Marshmallows?

Otto's do the big bucket sized containers. Quite cheap as well.

Re: Marshmallows?

Howdy!

There's a mail order company in Rudolfstetten (AG) that has 'em:

Click on "Produkte" on the left, then scroll down to the marshmallows.

Enjoy!

Re: Marshmallows?

Yummy BBQ marshmallows at Aldi this week, not too sweet - CHF1.99 for 300g - if you prefer not to buy the humongous 1kg bag at Denner's for CHF6.90.

There's a whole bunch of 'American' stuff as well:

Not exactly healthy eating, but we have our weak moments to pander to.

Re: Marshmallows?

Also, if you're feeling a tad bit adventurous (or they are not "in season" here), marshmallows are (reputedly) easy to make at home.

Here is one from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa:

That raises the question: Where do you buy corn syrup?

That is a good question. I've seen molasses at Migros but haven't (yet) gone looking for corn syrup.

I'll probably go looking in the fall though, I've got a taste for some Pecan Pie. ( http://www.myhomecooking.net/pecan-p...pie-recipe.htm )

Btw, I noticed in that Aldi advertisement that they will have lime pie kits available... I wonder how close to Key Lime pie that will taste. THAT is something I do so miss (although my now 2 sizes lower waist doesn't miss it so much).

It will taste foul! Try this recipe (with regular limes) and you'll be back in your old pants in no time.

I haven't seen corn syrup here, but for any recipe combining corn syrup and brown sugar, the "Melasse" at Migros is a reasonably good substitute. (It's actually molasses-flavored syrup - real molasses is the third ingredient.)

white sugar + Swiss molasses = brown sugar + corn syrup

Re: Marshmallows?

If you are feeling a bit lazy and don't want to leave the comfort of your chair? then try Ebay, I recently purchased some peanut brittle from a store from on www.ebay.co.uk and it arrived within 7 days. perfect ot the crunch

Try the Reformhaus for those.

edit: don't remember if the stuff they have is rice krispies or puffed rice... anybody else know? I've never bought it.

Re: Marshmallows?

rice krispies = puffed rice. hence, the name.
thanks for the tip on reformhaus. since i do the cooking, it's useful to know my shopping options.
i could have walked past some place called 'reformhaus' a million times before someone told me it wasn't a juvenile detention facility.....

Nope, not the same thing. Rice Krispies (on the left) crunch when you bite down on them, puffed rice (on the right) just smooshes. Got a bit of a spongy texture, like a rice cake but softer.
