girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, and back in 2009 that is
exactly what Marshmallow Mischief creator Sarah Figueroa Berchild did.
After experiencing the passing of her brother, Sarah began to look at her life as not one filled with scheduled deadlines, but one that would be lived through her experiences.
"Marshmallow Mischief takes the notion of 'global comfort' food to America.
What a twist - combining nostalgia with worldly flavors, honest to goodness ingredients and gourmet, all-natural, gluten-free crispy rice treats."
"When we're not in the kitchen, we're giving back to the community. Last year (our first year) we raised $800 in funds for HIV & AIDs foundations. Our treats taste "crispylicious" and help to save lives."
Traveling around the world and seeing different cultures, tasting what they had to offer, learning what comfort food meant in various parts of the world fascinated her and not only fulfilled her own dreams, but also reconnected her with her brother. Their shared love of travel and of food inspired Sarah to come back home and get into the kitchen.
By mixing the freshest, organic ingredients, local and internationally sourced exotic spices and brown rice into an already much loved marshmallow treat, she began to mix up blissful little bites for her friends and loved ones. She found that she could create a treat that spoke to everyone- from those who were watching their weight, to vegetarians, to organic healthy eaters, to Mom’s who wanted a sweet treat for their kids without all the preservatives- Sarah had hit the “sweet spot” when it came to the perfect bite.
Before long the clamoring for her blissful bites became so much that Marshmallow Mischief took on a life of its own and became the fun loving, blissful bite making, whimsical company that it is today.
With 49 flavors (and counting!) Sarah is constantly researching new flavors, immersing herself in different cultures and of course, giving back to the community while providing only the finest quality ingredients in each hand made batch.
