Here is what I was sent to review:
1. Double Chocolate Marshmallow Cupcakes
2. Chocolate & Peppermint Marshmallow Cupcakes
3. Chocolate S'mores Marshmallow Cupcakes
5. SweetHeart Chocolate Marshmallow Cupcakes
I started with the S'mores because when I was in elementary school I was a Girl Scout and we toasted S'mores all the time out in the back of our clubhouse and toast them ourselves! So, I was really excited to see these and boy, were they good!
Of course, nothing could ever come close to the "real" thing but these were pretty near close enough to bring back some wonderful times.
The best thing is that the cupcake dressing (or dipping in chocolate) was done so good that you did not know at first that you were eating a marshmallow! I did not tell my husband what they were and he just grabbed one and within 2 1/2 bites it was gone. He said, that was pretty good, what was it? I wish you could have seen his eyes when I told him he just ate a marshmallow! It was hilarious to say the least.
These babies oozed chocolate and they did not disappoint anybody in my family. It is just about right. It gives you that little bit of dessert taste without overdoing it and still feel like you did something naughty and nice all rolled up into one. I really had to savor this one for as long as I could.
It was very very good!! I could see myself getting addicted to these in no time so it is a good thing we only have a few left and then I won't have fight off the rumblings of this tummy!
Then I tried the Peppermint one because hubby is not too crazy about that flavor so in a way he gets want he wants and I get what I want and we are both happy with that. Normally, it would be a comfortable conversation without other ears listening to us. But I can tell you that this little gem packed a really good bang for the money. And the best part out of all of this is that Melville is the one creating all these wonderful things so a family can have more time to spend together. (plus it keeps mom from licking the bowls or spoons and eating the dessert on top of that when it is done)!
Melville Candy Company has so much more to offer and I was absolutely overwhelmed just trying to decide what to get. When you go to the link I have above this sentence, just look at all the possibilities that are staring at you. They have them divided up into Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall! Now, who would have thought that certain candies should be in a certain season?
So far, I think I like Winter the best because you get Halloween Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine's Day! Lord, I am seeing that this might be a hard store to stay away from if I am not careful. I could go on like this forever, but I am pretty sure all of you know how to find Melville Candy Company and check them out for yourselves. I think next Christmas I will have to surprise him with something unique because that is exactly what he is. He deserves only th best and I think Melville Candy can deliver!

Melville Candy Company has been so kind as to allow one winner the chance to try out all the above flavors for themselves. You will get a box of each flavor that holds 4 marshmallows in each box. This will be in my Cupid's Arrow Prize Package that starts on January 25th.
