Our Kickstarter campaign is over, but our website www.mallows.nl will be up and running to order fluffy Mallows and mail them to someone special.
Big thanks to all our backers. You are awesome!
At Mallows we love giving perfect presents, receiving surprises by mail and eating soft & gooey sweets. And we have noticed we are not alone.
That is why we are planning to expand our homemade marshmallow business and make them available to all marshmallow enthusiasts, and we could use your help.
Mallows are super delicious and completely different from the ones you buy at the store. They are soft and fluffy and packed with flavour. All natural and handmade with lots of love. At Mallows we believe in fair trade and have a preference for organic ingredients.
We need your support to lift things off the ground. We need to hire someone to develop a kickass webshop and we need to design and purchase beautiful present-worthy boxes to ship the Mallows. Furthermore we could use extra baking trays and a second mixer to expand our capacity.
Who we are
Michelle is the Mallows making expert. She has bravely given up her career as an advisor in medical education to pursue her dream and becoming a pastry chef. In the last 4 years she has graduated as a pastry chef and gained national and international experience in several luxury patisseries and five star hotels.
Quinten is the marshmallow tasting expert and works as a designer and model maker. He is a true perfectionist. He has tried all kinds of marshmallows all over the world and can honestly confirm Mallows are delish.
Our dream is to contribute to the joy of giving; spreading happiness and fluffy, gooey yumminess all over the planet.
We have found multiple ways to reward you for backing us and of course most of them involve delicious Mallows.
We offer you single flavoured boxes and boxes you can combine as you wish (max. 4 flavours). If you become an out-of-this-world-backer we develop Mallows in any flavour you want and you'll get loads of them. Furthermore we can provide you with a monthly dose of Mallows.
Especially for our international backers (Hi there!) we have developed an exclusive kickstarter edition called The Dutchies Box (worldwide free shipping included). This box contains Mallows in typical flavours from Holland like our famous stroopwafels and Haagse Hopjes.
We have a variety of 6 flavours to choose from:
- Limoncello: A Mallow with a little lemon sweet-tartness. Made with lemon liqueur Villa Massa a 'real ' Limoncello of Sorrento from Southern Italy.
- Apple pie: Nothing says "given with love" more than these Mallows made with apple & cinnamon, rolled in buttery piecrust crumbs.
- Salty caramel swirl: A vanilla Mallow with a swirl of rich and gooey caramel completed with a pinch of sea salt
- Cappuccino: Fine Italian espresso combined with the creaminess of marshmallows, topped off with rich cocoa powder.
- Spiced cherry: We cook our sour cherries with spices like star anise, vanilla, cinnamon & cloves before putting them in these heart-warming Mallows.
- Honey & chamomile: A splash of honeyed loveliness and a dash of comforting chamomile blossom. The velvety taste will calm your spirit and warm your soul.
Kickstarter special: The Dutchies Box contains 4 flavours: Stroopwafel (caramel waffles), drop (liquorice), speculaas (Dutch gingerbread) and Haagse Hopjes (coffee & caramel treats from our hometown The Hague).
Curious how a minty Mojito Mallow would taste? This bonus flavour will be unlocked when our project hits € 2222. Spread the word and enjoy!
Most of our artisan Mallows are free of gluten, wheat, dairy and eggs. See our FAQ below for the specifics per flavour.
We are planning to ship your reward at the beginning of 2015.
Risks and challenges
We kept our menu limited to keep things manageable. We are not afraid of making large amounts of Mallows since Michelle has plenty of experience in professional kitchens.
We have sent test packages to every corner of the world to make sure the quality after shipping still meets our high standards. Shipping to a very hot climate will devalue the quality of the Mallows. We can not rule out the risk of being dependent on the reliability of local mail services. Delivery in the middle-east unfortunately turned out to be problematic.
If the custom made packaging causes a big delay we will ship your rewards in wrapped standard boxes, making sure they are gift-worthy.
