I tried Kosher marshmallows. They were terrible. Think of last week's fish still sitting in the garbage bag. Are any made without the fish? Reply

kosher marshmallows kosher marshmallows can be difficult to find if you don't live near a kosher grocery. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try making your own with fish gelatin or agar agar.

Alternatively you could order some online. Reply
