Just the right amount of sweet

These are sublime. The flavor is hard to describe, I'd say it's similar to a lightly toasted marshmallow. Great to have after a meal or when craving something sweet. I received these in a Nourishing Essentials package and I just placed an order for another bag, because I shared too many. Everyone loves them!
