Boston's Tiny Trapeze Marshmallow M-I-A

Buddernut | Mar 15, 2009 08:29 PM

What the !! I've been addicted to these homemade marshmallows at Whole Foods produced by Tiny Trapeze. They've been featured on TV, and their marshmallows are sublime. Most recently, I've been buying the chocolate truffle marshmallows ....they are not dipped in chocolate, they are a chocolate marshmallow...with an incredible texture. I buy a container a week and use them in everything from desserts to a long fork over my gas burner. Out of bordom one night, I put some high-end carmel in a pastry bag, pumped it into the marshmallows and then dunked them in schaffenberger chocolate. 5 minutes in the fridge and I was in Willy Wonka Land. So, lately, I've not been finding the marshmallows.
So I inquired at Whole Foods and they said..... (hold on, I have to wipe the tears)..... they said Tiny Trapeze went out of business !!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! I found some pints of marshmallow creme today, and I checked the www. I only came up with a readable PDF file.... so I called..... the dang number is out of service !! Why...Why... Why...... anyone know what the heck happened. WF's says they're trying to find a similar product, but today at the Bedford location I almost passed out when I saw what looked like "campfire" marshmallows packed in a plastic container for sale. Is there some little elf in the back of WF portioning out Jet Puffed falsies to a "gourmet container" for sale ??? Oh, the humanity.
Okay, that's my rant. If anyone wants to pile on..... I'll listen and sympathize.
