Because it originally came from the marshmallow plant back in ancient Egypt...pronunciations change a lot over time I guess.

It isn't marshmellow because after eating a lot of them you aren't mellow; you are hyper from the sugar.....

Best Answer

I think it should be spelled mellow because they are good munchie food and when you're high, you're mellow.

Best Answer

Hmm well that is a good way of looking at it too. Either way I don't care because they are delicious. :P

Best Answer

Absolutely delicious.

Best Answer

Yep.. I like to take a couple of them and start to mash them up, like you would with dough. They get all sticky like taffy; so good. Only problem is your hands get sticky.

Best Answer

Lol I just like to throw and handful in my mouth and pretend I'm noming on clouds. So fluffy and bouncy.

Best Answer

Haha, nothing wrong with that. I like the mini ones and like to throw them up and catch them in my mouth.

Best Answer

Lol yeah those were the ones I was eating. Every time I try to catch food with my mouth, I almost choke.

Best Answer

Ah okay. And yeah, it takes some practice to get good at it. When I was younger I used to choke all the time. The other day I had some of the larger ones and my brother wanted me to throw one across the room to him so he could catch it in his mouth. I threw it right into his mouth, he didn't even have to move; it was pretty awesome. :P

Best Answer

Haha one time, I was sucking cap'n crunch berries off a spoon and one of them got lodged in my throat.
