The Marshmallow Apothecary- 02.12.13
Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw!
Last night, we braved the snow to cure our ailments with a round up medicinal marshmallows at The Robin Collective’s brand new pop-up cafe in the heart of London’s Carnaby Street. Visitors will have the chance to have their love lives analysed, diagnosed and medicated with fluffy, pillowy, deliciously flavored marshmallows. We were thrilled to get a sneak peek at the project, as we fell in love with medicinal Marshmallows as soon as we first encountered them at the 2011 Experimental Food Society exhibition. More photos of the pop-up shop on the next page!
Lounge on giant marshmallow-inspired cushions as you indulge your sweet tooth.
A tower of mallowy goodness!
There’s a marshmallow for every ailment from malaria and scurvy to broken hearts and tummy helpers and flavors are inspiring and exotic too, including mace and msg, horehound, raw cafeinne, red wine and royal jelly. We even tried a cheese marshmallow (though it’s not currently on the menu)!
An exotic platter of marshmallow experiences.
The pop-up Marshmallow Apothecary will be open from today for two weeks in Kingly Court, serving coffee, tea and of course marshmallows. The pop-up will also feature a changing selection of cocktails and alcoholic hot chocolates. Love the sound of red wine hot chocolate with exotic medicinal marshmallows!
