Dandies were created in 2008 by Ryan Howard. It came to be when his vegan son wanted to try a marshmallow. Since original marshmallows have animal byproducts, he decided to make his own marshmallows for his son to try! Dandies are made with natural ingredients, are 100% vegan, and non-GMO verified. These marshmallows taste even better than the ones you had as a kid!
