Sweet & Sara Vegan Marshmallows Spotlighted on TV

The cruelty-free sweets were featured on The Cooking Channel.

The Cooking Channel’s Not My Mama’s Meals, hosted by Paula Deen’s son Bobby Deen, recently aired a segment starring Sara Sohn from Sweet & Sara. The genius behind the original gelatin-free marshmallows showed Deen how to bake vegan graham crackers to pair with her marshmallows, adding a few extra plant-based pointers along the way; when he asked about vegan butter, she explained they were using “a non-hydrogenated buttery spread … that looks and taste like butter, but doesn’t have the trans-fat.” Deen expressed concern about the sweetness and taste of dairy- and egg-free graham crackers, but after tasting the finished product, exclaimed his mother wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference.
