Nab some gooey marshmallow perfection!

Posted March 10th, 2020

Sofas and marshmallows have more in common than you might think! Like us, Mallow & Marsh are a young business that makes marshmallowy things by hand here in Blighty. And, like us, they've also become experts in the science of squish.

If you haven't tasted the gooey perfection of Mallow & Marsh, it's time you did. For your chance to bag one of 5 gift boxes which are now up for grabs, simply answer the following question: Where does the word marshmallow come from? Is it:

a. Chateau Marshmallow, seat of the Duke of Dextrose
b. A plant that grows in damp places
c. Bloomsbury Group socialite Lady Ottoline Marsh-Mallow
d. Nobody actually knows

Ping your answer to [email protected] or pop it on our Facebook page, Twitter feed or Instagram post by Monday 16th March 2020. We'll pick 5 lucky winners at random and publish their names on our blog the very next day.
