If you didn’t dig through a box of Lucky Charms to find marshmallows as a child, did you even have a childhood?
Thankfully, gourmet marshmallow retailer, XO Marshmallow is allowing us to relive our glory days, as they’ve announced they’re opening a marshmallow café this summer in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.
That’s right, the windy city is getting the sugary goodness it’s been waiting for!
XO Marshmallow created a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the retail space and thanks to all of Chicago’s sweets lovers, they reached their goal of $6,500.
“XO Marshmallow will be Chicago’s first and only marshmallow café and we are proud to announce we reached our crowdfunding goal and will be delivering on our promises,” co-owners Kat and Lindzi said.
Now you may be thinking, what exactly does a marshmallow café consist of?
According to their Kickstarter, they “hope to provide a full espresso bar, s’mores station and full-on marshmallow wonderland.”
Their menu features items such as Taco S’mores, Rice Crispy Treats, Marshmallow Cones and Marshmallow Pops.
XO Marshmallow will also sell innovative marshmallow flavors, such as green tea, lavender honey and salted caramel.
For the 21 and over crowd, XO Marshmallow features boozy delights including Bourbon, Champagne and Kahlua marshmallows.
The wait for this yummie marshmallow café is almost over but until then, you can purchase their crowd-pleasing marshmallows online.
