Lil Christmas Lolita Willow

Did you know? Marshmallows first came into being as a medicinal substance, from the mucilaginous extracts of the root of the marshmallow plant, Althaea Officinalis, as a soothing remedy for sore throats. The use of marshmallow to make a candy dates back to ancient Egypt, where the recipe called for extracting sap from the plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. Modern marshmallows came about from the invention of an extrusion process by the American Alex Doumak in 1948 which produces the cylindrical shape we’re familiar with.
