Gourmet Marshmallows from Penang: Huey & Wah are the best!

The first time I encountered the Huey & Wah gourmet marshmallows was at Big Supermarket in Publika. I loved the cute container and the way they packaged the product. Plus of course, my daughter is into her "marshmallow" phase which helped me notice these little sweet things more than usual.

I decided to give their marshmallows a try and fell in love with it. I visited their website http://hueynwah.my/  and got even more excited when I found out that they could customize these marshmallows. I did it for my daughter's 4th birthday -- it seemed only appropriate to give away her favorite gourmet marshmallows.

Imagine our delight when we went to Penang from Christmas last December 2013. We went to this new shopping mall called Straits Quay in Penang and found that Huey & Wah shop was there. I was like a little kid -- excited (just like my daughter).

It's a cute little shop (and workshop, where I guess they make their sweet concoctions). To my delight, they had a special lemon-orange flavor at that time which was sold with a packet of hot chocolate -- oh my. I was so happy to try it! I was into the "hot chocolate" phase (as I have quit coffee for a while now)... so it was such a treat!

I must warn you though. Because of my "letting go" of myself with these cute marshmallow treats (I bought a lot and added it into my hot chocolate mornings or tea time), I believe I gained some weight and extra fat around the belly. It was too late when I realized this... and I was kind of relieved we finished all our stocks after the Xmas holidays, so that I can get back in shape without temptation at home.

I recently saw these stocks also at Jason's Food Hall in Bangsar Shopping Centre. I am glad that anytime I, ahem, we decide to buy marshmallows for our treat, it will be within reach. 

Definitely something worth checking out for marshmallow lovers.

Had lunch outdoors at this Italian restaurant-- too pricey, please avoid it! Even for us KL-ites, we found the price unreasonable for the type of food and service they gave... sigh!
