Charmallows, "Charmy" mascot

Charmallows *are* REAL marshmallows.

Our armies of taste testers all declare them better than any of the sad bags of mass machine-produced gelatin-based things sold in grocery stores. 

Charmallows melt and mould and mix and toast like non-vegan marshmallows.
You can use them any way you would use non-vegan marshmallows, with no need to adjust your recipes. 
  • Rice crisp squares made with charmallows are a very special treat!
  • S'mores? Banned to vegans no more!
  • Excellent bobbing in your favourite cup of vegan cocoa!

Oh, and they are, of course, completely Gluten Free!

Current ingredients for plain Charmallows: 
cane sugar, corn syrup, water, soy protein isolate, tapioca starch, carageenan

If you are outside of the Ottawa-Gatineau area, and want to order Charmallows by mail, up to date ordering information and flavours are kept, for now, on Facebook (Charmallows), but please feel free to contact for more specifics.

Some Charmallows Updates.

by Charmallows on September 18, 2013 0 Comments

Hello, all!

Well, there are a number of things on the go with Charmallows at the moment.

First of all, we found an article on us at VegNews that we somehow didn't catch earlier: "Vegan Marshmallows in the Works in Ottawa".

Please check out or Facebook page (Charmallows) for further and on-going details. We update that more often than the website here presently.

Flavour possibilities are listed there, as well as what flavours of Charmallows we have made up for on-line orders.

Basically, we can ship a box of Charmallows that weighs 2 kg, box included, to most locations in Canada for about $15 with a 1-2 day delivery time.

Snack bags of Charmallows, Plain or Flavoured, retail for $5 for each bag of ~8 Charmallows (~80 g). And you can buy twelve snack bags for the cost of only ten!

We are trying to find lighter boxes for ...

Charmallows on CTV Ottawa Morning Live

Here's the link to my CTV Ottawa Morning Live spot from this morning (810am, July 4th, 2013).


Please note the Olivia Chocolat vegan chocolate that I used.
Things were a bit rushed and I wasn't able to praise t
hem in this clip. I spent a lot of time testing and trying various vegan chocolates and their Hempmilk Chocolate really stepped up to the plate for this. Excellent! 
Check out their website ( for more on their first rate products!

Charmallows, S'mores, Olivia Chocolatiers, and CTV TV Spot July 4th

by Charmallows on July 3, 2013 0 Comments


Well, I spent some time yesterday afternoon with David MacDonald of Olivia Chocolatiers (
Good news is that Charmallows has finally discovered our perfect s'mores chocolate*.
Vegan, gluten-free, made locally in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, their chocolate has reset my own personal expectations of chocolate in general. 
More news and developments to follow, but I think we'll be using their Vegan Hemp Milk Chocolate for our CTV Ottawa Morning spot this July 4th. 
BTW, we've been upped to 810am from our previous 845am slot. See you then!

We do not as yet have a formal system set up, and that's primarily because we've been focused on developing reasonable shipping and handling costs! 

So, if you want to be part of our beta-sales tests, email

Retail snack packages of Charmallows, flavoured or non-flavoured, are $5.00 for 8 Charmallows.

A 250 g bag, containing approximately 30 Charmallows, would be $20.00.

All payments, for now, via PayPal.

In the short term, the actual shipping and handling will be calculated per order.

I hope this helps everyone who wants Charmallows NOW, and who don't live in the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

Haribo Chamallows ≠ Charmallows

by Charmallows on June 25, 2013 0 Comments

The European candy company Haribo makes a marshmallow product called "Chamallows".

I came across it while Googling and actually found the product in some stores locally.

Oddly enough, some people have misspelled "Chamallows" as "Charmallows" in a number of blogs and fan web sites.

So, to avoid confusion, I will clarify that in no uncertain terms, Haribo Chamallows are NOT Charmallows. And Charmallows are NOT Haribo Chamallows.


Chamallows are not Charmallows

Charmallows a vegan treat for all to enjoy

Ottawa, ON –A local entrepreneur has turned an all-time favourite treat to vegan with the creation of Charmallows. As Canada’s only company offering vegan marshmallows, and one of only three in North America, Charmallows will make their first public debut at VegFest Ottawa 2013 to be hosted at St. Paul’s University, 223 Main Street, on June 22-23.

Made in small, artisanal batches, creator James Bain keeps a close eye on product quality and customer satisfaction. “I keep refining the recipe and have now achieved greater shelf life and better fluff. Added to that is greater consumer awareness – and demand has really taken off,” says Bain.

Charmallows, which are also Gluten free, have a simple ingredient listing of cane sugar, corn syrup, water, soy protein isolate, corn starch and carrageenan for the classic ...
