Tea Suggestion:

Because these marshmallows offer such a delightful lime taste, I thought that I’d go with a pure green tea so that they could compliment each other.  I chose this Huang Shan Hair Tip from Arbor Teas … the pleasing vegetative tones allowed some of the avacado notes to express themselves a little better than without the tea, which I really appreciated, and the lime brightened up my tea time!

What I Think:

When I placed my most recent order with 240Sweet, I ordered the Chai Spice Marshmallows (of course, I love Chai!) and the Sweet Potato & Ginger and these Avocado & Lime Marshmallows.  I ordered the Chai because … well, as I said, I love Chai.  But I added the other two to the order out of curiosity.  I mean, really … avocado?  and Lime???  In a marshmallow?

I expected these to look a bit more green than they do, but I guess I can understand why they might not have wanted them to look green … it could easily be misconstrued as possibly moldy.  I also expected a bit more avocado flavor to these … what I taste primarily is the lime.  These are sweet from the marshmallow and tangy from the lime.

These actually may just be one of my favorite flavors from 240Sweet yet!  While I am a little sad that I don’t taste avocado here, the way the lime and the marshmallow balance each other out more than makes up for the lack of avocado.  The pucker-y tartness of the lime is mellowed out by the sweetness of the marshmallow, and the sometimes cloying sweetness of the marshmallow is tapered by the tangy lime notes.  This is one of the best balanced marshmallows I’ve ever eaten!

My Final Thoughts:

I haven’t really ever made it any kind of secret that I have mad love for 240Sweet.  Their marshmallows rock my world!

So what’s next on my list as far as 240Sweet goes?  Well, I have the Bourbon Sugar Bourbon marshmallows from my Knoshbox still to try.  I’m thinking about saving them until I have a chance to stoke up a fire in the fireplace because I’m thinking that these are going to be amazing roasted.   But, the next time I order from 240Sweet, I think I want to try their Bourbon Sugar Churro with Cajeta, and the pumpkin pecan sounds amazing too.  Maybe I’m going to have to place an order with them sooner than I thought, because I have a feeling that the pumpkin pecan isn’t going to be around much longer … it’s kind of a seasonal thing, right?   Oh… and I definitely need to try their Bananas Foster!
