March 26, 2014 – GENERAL FOODS INTERNATIONAL (GFI) is proud to announce the launch of S’mores Cappuccino featuring JET-PUFFED Marshmallows. This new limited time flavor combines the rich taste of chocolate with a hint of graham cracker and marshmallow – the classic flavors of everyone’s favorite campfire treat.
For more than 80 years, s’mores have been a staple dessert that evoke memories of camping trips and stories around the fire. In fact, the first printed record of a s’mores recipe appeared in a Girl Scout handbook in 1927! Plus, JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, which launched nationally in 1959, have been earning their title as “America’s Favorite Marshmallow ” for more than half a century. But this treat is anything but dated – nostalgic desserts are enchanting restaurant guests across the country, and artisanal marshmallows are a burgeoning trend.
