I was at Target a couple days ago and saw these Pina Colada Marshmallows from Kraft Jet-Puffed

My heart skipped a beat. Marshmallows and pina colada in one? These were tailor-made for me and instantly went into my cart.

Target has some great finds. Sure, I need that new sports bra color, those new seasonal M & Ms that if I don’t buy them now I’ll never be able to get them again, that new body wash scent. Too many great finds for my wallet to handle. You can relate, I’m sure.

I just made Pina Colada Cookies and wish I would have had the pina colada marshmallows to include. Just means I’ll have to make another batch of cookies. Oh darn.

I haven’t even opened the marshmallows yet and am storing them in a sealed Ziplock in my pantry until I figure out what I’m doing with them.

Even in the sealed bag, the strong coconutty, tropical pina scent is ridiculously intense. They are the marshmallow equivalent of Drakkar cologne. Remember that stuff? Strong, potent, intense, you can smell it from a mile away and probably shouldn’t like it but you do. At least when you’re in ninth grade.

I also picked up these little vanilla marshmallow bits. I have a few recipes I’m going to put these into and they’re are also great by the handful in hot chocolate.

I’m a big fan of the sweet white puffballs in just about any form.

I made Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars for a friendly little competition.

A friend and fellow San Diegan won, but I still had fun including most every item from my baking pantry into the recipe.

  1. I know you’re not vegan, but since you seem to eat marshmallows, I’m curious – what are your thoughts on gelatin? I personally don’t eat any gelatin or rennet but a lot of vegetarians do.

  2. I seriously bought those marshmallow awhile back, and they inspired me to try to make some pina colada marshmallows from scratch. My first attempt was a bust, but I really need to try that again!

    1. I know what you mean about making marshmallows from scratch…and too funny you bought those exact ones! And that they were the inspiration of your homemade marshmallow attempt.

  3. I’ve not seen those yet and it most likely is a really good thing. Otherwise, my closet and shelf organizing project would be ditched to the sidelines as I played in the kitchen with these babies.

  4. Pina Colada? I am so getting those! I am interested to see what you make with them. I am making it a rule that I can’t look at your blog at night because I immediately want to go make or eat something sweet!

  5. I don’t know how I missed them before, but I just got back from a weekend of camping and those s’more rice krispie treats are just PERFECT for weaning off the real things :) Deelish!

  6. I really connected with Ganesh while I was in India. Everywhere I went, I just couldn’t get enough! I would LOVE a shirt like that. You’re right, they do look very, very comfy :)

    1. What the heck? weird… went to comment on your Ganesh post and it went on marshmallows? Blaming the user on this one. It’s only 10am and already I’m disoriented. It’s going to be a long, long day. hahaha

      1. I was wondering when I read that, you commented on the previous post, but figured you were scrolling and just clicked the wrong one…it happens :) Hope your day is a good one!

  7. I have only ever made marshmallow fluff, but I am trying to find some time to make my own marshmallows! I love them…. especially now that it’s summer (sort of) and s’mores are on the brain. I can only imagine how delicious the pina colada ones are…mmm….
    BTW my dad still wears Drakkar Noir. I think he has been wearing it since the 80’s and probably will forever lol.

    1. Too funny about your dad! Marshmallow making takes some time but NOTHING like what you’ve been doing with the Momofuku book!

  8. I NEED to find these marshmallows. Must head to Target today !! I love all things coconut/pina colada (;

  9. What a fun marshmallow post, crazy find at Target! I’ve only had them a few times since going vegan – vegan marshmallows aren’t cheap, but delicious.

  10. Haha- Cologne that you like when you’re 9 :) I remeber loving the look of my mom’s perfume bottles at that age. They seemed so magical!

    I’d have to say toasted over an open fire is my favourite way to enjoy marshmallows!

    1. Mom’s perfume bottles were so captivating at that age…oh, I remember it well. Wanting to go smell them all!

  11. I need to make those Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars…like now! Well, maybe not now now but tomorrow for sure: they look amazing!

  12. My mouth has been watering with all the new marshmellow flavors. I actually snacked on a few tonight when I made the Golden Graham S’mores bars. I tried the gingerbread around the holidays and they wre great in hot chocolate! I haven’t seen pina collata yet, but how fun!

    This blogger recipe is a new favorite…who doesnt love S’mores???

  13. I was in a store today and saw Campfire marshmallows. This was a first for me. They were easily 4x the size of regular ‘mallows. I squealed. Really loud. People looked. I didnt care. I want those damn marshmallows!

    1. That’s a new one, “campfire” marshmallows…guess that just means they are supersized :)

  14. Those marshmallows would be great in bars or cookies– and I know you’ll come up with a marvelous recipe to use them in!!! I remember my mom making marshmallow once– they were gigantic. The mention of Drakkar takes me back to my early college days. One of my favorite professors wore it but didn’t put it on with a heavy hand…so he did smell good!

    1. Well at least he didn’t go overboard. Kind of like Polo, Paco Rabanne, or similar from that era, a little went a long ways :)
