Everything here is amazingly tasty. Our only regret is that we didnt take more home with us! Great range of flavours and its all tasty! We tried pretty much all of it.

Easily the best milkshake we have ever tried! And the salted caramel 'donut' was delicious! Will definitely be visiting again when we're back in Edinburgh.

Hired the marshmallow lady for our wedding. She made delicious and beautiful wedding favors. They were a hit and we were so happy! Highly recommend visiting her store or using her for your next event. Try the cookies and cream!!!

Usually when you describe a marshmallow as crunchy, it is a bad thing. Somehow , this lady balances the crunchy with the squishy and there are so many flavours to choose from.

Some of the best marshmallows I've ever had - light, airy, and they literally melt in your mouth. Crazy, inventive flavours that really translate well - it doesn't just say it tastes of rose, it really does! Irn Bru, s'mores, you name it....the flavours shine....More

I've never tasted better marshmellows than these. They're delicious and I love the fact that they are homemade. I tasted all the special flavors and I couldn't choose which one was the best. I've been here twice and had a milkshake and a sundae, both...More

A wonderful wee shop. Who knew you could make G&T marshmallows?! Dozens of other wonderful flavours to buy too. The kids loved the chocolate marshmallows. Didn’t stay for milkshakes or coffee but will do next time
