Mallow and Marsh – Raspberry Marshmallow Whip (Ocado) By @Cinabar

Toast is steadily becoming a staple food at Foodstuff Finds, what is more tricky is trying to find something interesting to put on it. I added this Mallow and Marsh Raspberry Marshmallow Whip spread to my last online order, as it sounded something a bit different. I do like marshmallows, but usually have them with hot chocolate as a treat.
The jar has a tag around it with a number of serving suggestions for this spread, most intriguing was for cakes which sounded rather nice, least exciting was straight from the jar, but we’ve all been there. I bought this with toast in mind so decided to proceed with my plan. I opened up the jar and found a pink coloured spread inside, as it is air whipped it was surprisingly light to scoop and I ended up using quit a bit of the jar just to cover two pieces of toast. While it was spreading it was going very sticky and the knife needed some hot water on it. The spread itself seemed to loose the pinkish colour and looked more white on the toast. I didn’t put any butter first by the way, that would have seemed a bit weird.
The spread wasn’t nearly as exciting as I had hoped it would be. The raspberry flavour was mild and was secondary to the sugar flavour that was dominant. I’ve never had a burning desire to eat icing sugar on toast and this spread reminded me why. Perhaps it is good in cakes, but it wasn’t working on toast for me. Anyone recommend any decent or different spreads for my toast?
