    Marshmallows are pretty much fat free anyway! No idea why they bothered even producing a 'fat free' version! They are mostly sugar though (see below) - so reduced calorie ones I could understand!

    Marshmallow recipe...

    • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
    • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Maybe they think that with fat free things they have to add even more sugar to keep the nom factor... :rolleyes:

    Is this just another instance of marketing something which already has little or no fat as "fat free" just to make people believe they are making a healthy choice?

    Like the "fat-free" jelly which was mentioned here some time ago, when there is no fat in jelly in the first place.
