Fete Artisan Marshmallows, Zenberi & UGood

As Bing Crosby first sang 62 Christmases ago, "It's a marshmallow world, it's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts." Fete this Yuletide with marvelous Malaysian-made marshmallows, hand-cut & hand-wrapped with artistry & assurance.

Fete Artisan Marshmallows have popped up at multiple locations in recent months, with their makers, engaged couple Julian & Carmen, setting up stalls at Urbanscapes & other bazaars, as well as running deliveries across the Klang Valley.

Now, there's finally a convenient place to purchase these babies, seven days a week, 10am-9pm, at Publika's Carousel children's toy store (hidden on the same row as Namoo).

Varieties include chocolate chip (our favorite), Tahitian vanilla, Japanese matcha, orange marmalade, cookies & cream, & double espresso. Pleasantly spongy, offering a firm bite, with flavors delicate but true.

Well-presented packages of six cost RM9, with expiration dates at least a fortnight away.

Marshmallow puffs are also available, as well as lollipop-like "marshie pops" with choc sprinkles. 

Marshmallow bouquets, cakes & other creations are possible on order. Brilliant for birthdays, baby showers, weddings & every other celebration in between.
Fete Marshmallows @ G3-14, Publika (in the mall), Solaris Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur.
Contact for orders: 012-377-0268

Bonus look at more desserts elsewhere: Fans of frosty treats can have a sweet time at Tropicana City Mall's Zenberi & Taman Tun's UGood.

Zenberi's ice cream is satisfactory, with green tea, black sesame & yuzu flavors that feel natural-tasting. Note: there's also a Zenberi in Pavilion.

An East-meets-West pastry preparation: fresh, fluffy croissants, fascinatingly filled with azuki bean paste & topped with poppy seeds.

Handmade blueberry mille-crepe cake, not the best in town but bolehlah.

Next up, TTDI's U Good, which specializes in frozen yogurt ice cream. 

A smooth, tasty mix of vanilla & mango flavors, with fresh mango cubes for fruity fun.

Customers can also purchase their fro-yo in warm, crisply fried "cornet" bread cones.

  2. Someone bought me Fete marshmellows and I've always wondered where it came from! So it's from Urbanscapes, I didn't see the stall myself.

    Good to know that they've got a brick and mortar now, I really liked those. :)

  7. I've had the marshmallows before; they're not bad for a change of pace. I only knew about it cos Carmen and I were in school together and was invited to (Facebook) Like the page :P Am a sucker for the chocolate ones myself, but not enough for me to buy often - I'll stick to Kraft's Jet Puffed for the marshmallow binge eating, LOL.

    1. Lifeasacynic: yeah, these might be a once-in-awhile treat for me. i'm usually not a fan of any marshmallows at all, but fete's ones don't seem to suffer from the artifice that i dislike in most other marshmallows :D

  9. Ooh, I don't think I've ever seen such an assortment of marshmallows. These certainly don't look like the type for melting in hot chocolate. They seem to deserve the whole stage for themselves. :-)

    1. The Yum List: oh yeah, you're totally right, i was wondering too whether these marshmallows should be dipped in some sort of chocolate fondue, but after tasting them, they can captivate the taste buds all on their own without any help from hot chocolate, heh :D
