Mommy? Where Do Marshmallows Come From?

You thought that marshmallows were man-made? Think again.

Harvesting Marshmallows

As the Nancyland blog clearly shows, in real, undoctored photos, marshmallows are grown and harvested just like corn, coffee, or oranges. Though a lot of people might not realize that marshmallows, in their natural form, are as big as a Nissan Sentra. Nancyland has several pics of a farmer taking the giant marshmallows and placing them in a truck, where they will be taken to a facility and made smaller for consumption in hot chocolate, cereals, and the ends of sticks over a campfire.
