Chicago Vegan Foods is proud to announce that Dandies Vegan Marshmallows are the first marshmallows to be Non-GMO Project Verified. An all natural, cruelty-free alternative to the traditional marshmallow, Dandies Vegan Marshmallows have been made in the Chicago area since 2009.
Chicago Vegan Foods worked with the Non-GMO Project for the past year to achieve an ingredient mix that keeps the integrity and deliciousness of the marshmallows intact. Each ingredient in Dandies Marshmallows was reviewed to ensure the entire product met the Non-GMO Project’s Standard.
“Marshmallows should be fun, not something with scary ingredients. That’s why we made Dandies delicious and non-GMO. We’ve never seen people so excited about marshmallows!” says Ryan Howard, President and Founder of Chicago Vegan Foods.
Dandies are the only campfire-style vegan marshmallow on the market and they are free of gelatin and corn. Produced in a dedicated dairy and nut free facility, Dandies are available in traditional size (made for s’mores and for roasting over the fire) and mini size (made for hot cocoa or snacking).
Marketing Director Dan Reed says, “This is the first of our products to be Non-GMO Project Verified so it’s a giant leap towards making all of our products Verified. We celebrated this achievement as we do every day, by making more marshmallows!”
In addition to being Non-GMO Project Verified, Dandies are also free of gelatin, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, gluten, fat, and corn, and they are also Kosher certified by the Chicago Rabbinical Council.
Dandies are sold at Whole Foods Market and other natural foods stores across the US, Canada, and select International markets. Dandies are also available for food service applications.
Chicago Vegan Foods makes cruelty-free foods for everyone. A small, tight knit family with vegan values, Chicago Vegan Foods would love to share their everyday fun foods with you at ChicagoVeganFoods.com
