Forget about s’mores, there’s a new marshmallow king in town!
James Middleton (brother to Kate Middleton, of course) has mastered the art of digital, edible food—and OK! is bringing it to you… for FREE! Read on to learn more about James’ company and how you can win an awesome prize.
According to James, the concept was simple:
“I was experimenting with ways of creating edible objects from digital content. I was working to three criteria: 1. they had to be delicious 2. they had to fit though a letterbox (that is, not parcel-sized) and 3. they could be personalisable.”
But why marshmallows, you ask?
“Marshmallows are a quintessential component of childhood,” James continues. “Whether in a mug of hot chocolate or a campfire sing-song. We are delighted to bring Instagram into the real world… if only for a moment before it gets eaten.”
And don’t worry—he’s not too wrapped up in the daily royal world, as you might expect.
James goes on to say, “I spent a lot of time developing the machines and techniques needed to print onto a marshmallow. I have built a great team who make every pack by hand. Before Christmas, orders kept coming at such a rate so I was wearing a hair net (and beard net) working from the early hours to late at night getting Boomf out the door.”
