In our little moshav grocery store this last remaining bag caught my eye. A limited edition of blue and white marshmallows! Complete with an Israeli flag. Probably in honor of the recent Independence Day, Lag BaOmer, and Jerusalem Day. Can you believe??
Marshmallows are not widely known or loved in Israel. Probably because we have no graham crackers with which to make s'mores. (As in "some more," the American campfire treat. A graham cracker sandwich with chocolate and gooey toasted marshmallows inside.)
And the Academy of the Hebrew Language has not yet invented a word for this formerly foreign fluff, so the name on the package says in Hebrew letters MaRSHMaLO.
