Marshmallow, it is generally held, is nature's perfect food. I know, I know. There's also chocolate PLUS marshmallow—that's a gimme. But on its own, the marshmallow is the pinnacle of culinary achievement. I have this on the authority of a certain Fluffernutter.

It has always grieved me, as editor of several kosher cookbooks, that kosher-kitchen cooks could not enjoy marshmallows. But that has changed, friends—and now, because of Elyon Marshmallows, sold at Whole Foods, we can all join as one in the sunny, friendly confines of marshmallow love.

Just in time for marshmallow season! Roasting marshmallows on the fire. Marshmallows for the holiday sweet potato bake. In ambrosia, Five-Cup Salad, Mississippi Mud Cake. Puffy, sugary bliss.

Kosher 'shmallows have a different, less gluey, softer, more sugary texture than nationally marketed marshmallows. They're like a—can I say it without a shiver of delight?—candy to be popped into the mouth, one delightful morsel at a time. It truly is a new day of inclusion in the republic.

And that's only part of the good news. Elyon also makes kosher gelatin—both regular and sugar-free. Southern sideboards everywhere give thanks. And sticky-fingered hostesses everywhere may start offering moist towelettes.
