Excuse Me, Did You Know Chicago Has A Marshmallow Café?

That's a's'more.

Everyone loves marshmallows, right? They’re great when they’re toasted, between two crackers with some chocolate (s’mores to our North American friends), and they’re even better when completely immersed in chocolate and nuts (rocky road).

There’s a lot you can do with those little puffy sweets, which is lucky, given there’s an entire cafe dedicated to them in Chicago.

Popular online marshmallow company XO Marshmallow are behind the very adorable store. Sensing the demand for an XO Marshmallow flagship location, staff raised the funds through Kickstarter, earning more than $3000 over their goal, proving that people really, really love spongey, sugary treats.

While marshmallows are, of course, the main attraction, they’re not the only things on the menu. Visitors can purchase gourmet items — including the unique MarsHalo ring that fits right on top of a mug – as well as whoopie pies, coffee, hot chocolate, cold chocolates, and toasted marshmallow lattes.

Of course, the beloved American s’more will be a staple on the menu, too.

It sounds pretty darn delicious, even if marshmallows aren’t your typical go-to treat.

The café itself is bright and delightful, decked-out with baby pink finishings and bright neon lights. You’d expect nothing else from a marshmallow café.
