About

About Squish Marshmallows:

Squish is producing marshmallows of magnificent magnitude (mmm…). These small batch, hand cut marshmallows are made with unique flavors like Banana Pudding, Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Rocky Road, and S'Mores, to name a few, fulfilling every palate from childhood favorite combinations, to sophisticated, grown-up confections. Oh, and of course, lots and lots of love.

The goal of Squish is to make a quality, delicious product, using natural ingredients in the marshmallow base, that makes people happy and changes the way they view the humble marshmallow. Whether you choose to enjoy the marshmallows by themselves, in your hot chocolate, morning coffee, or use them to make the most decadent and whimsical s’mores, the idea is to simply eat them and be happy.

Squish uses as many natural and GMO-free ingredients as possible, doesn’t use corn syrup, doesn't use food dyes, and doesn’t use eggs in the marshmallow base. Some marshmallows are gluten free and dairy free, and will be indicated in each product's details.

How Did Squish Marshmallows Begin?

I started Squish completely by accident (as many fun ideas start). As a former DJ, tech startup-er, and current voice over artist, I never really saw "marshmallow maker" in my future. But, I've always had a passion for cooking, baking, an even more serious passion for sweets (call up Guinness, I'm pretty sure I hold the record for the "World's Biggest Sweet Tooth"), and an entrepreneurial spirit (my first venture was at 8 years old, selling handmade, beaded jewelry at a local gift store. And yeah, this kid actually sold pieces!).

As soon as I started making marshmallows, I was hooked. They were fun for me to make, and it was exciting to come up with new and unique flavors and textures that people usually don't equate with the marshmallow. So, in April 2014, Squish Marshmallows was born.

The most important thing to me, is to make a quality product that people enjoy. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to bring a smile to someone's face with something that you've put your heart and love into.

What Funding For This Project Will Go To:

While this $10,000 goal will not cover everything needed, it's an excellent beginning that will help jump start (or, kickstart, if you will) the growth of Squish Marshmallows! 
Everything thus far has been self-funded. Luckily, some very important aspects are already covered (insurance, licensing, health certificates), but here's where we'll need help:
  • Food Materials (including being able to source for the highest quality ingredients)
  • Packaging
  • Distribution
  • Commercial Kitchen Rental Space
  • Kitchen Equipment 
  • Growing the Squish Marshmallows team (employing new members to increase production)

Risks and challenges

I want to make sure to avoid as many risks and challenges by taking future steps, slowly and steadily. Trying to accelerate too quickly will only compromise the integrity and quality of the brand and product. However, to build and grow a business, those steps forward must be made. Surprises will always pop up, in any situation and business, but by making sure that all licensing was already taken care of, the road blocks ahead are fewer and the ride will be a bit smoother.
All rewards are projected to be fulfilled January 2015. If, for any reason, things take a little bit longer and fall behind, you will be updated and kept in the loop!
