These aren’t your average marshmallows. The Bang Candy Co. specializes in artisan marshmallows and candy for the discerning palate.
With flavors such as Chocolate Chile, Orange Ginger Cinnamon and Rose Cardamom, these marshmallows are big, puffy and uniquely delicious. The Nashville-based candy maker got its start in May 2010 when owner Sarah Souther had her first taste of a handmade marshmallow. Blown away by the delicious treat, she began experimenting with recipes until she created the Rose Cardamom marshmallow.
Bang’s confections are crafted in small batches with no preservatives, stabilizers, artificial colors or flavors. Souther and her assistant Lisa Dubroc aren’t just shopping the candy around to friends’ birthday parties anymore. In addition to selling their marshmallows online at www.bangcandycompany.com, the duo is working on opening a store in Nashville.
