Do pink marshmallows taste different to white ones?

I think they do but I also think my mind is tricking me.

I mean in bog standard marshmallows, nice soft own brand ones from Sainsbury's and Tesco.

I don't think so but then again all I taste is ultra sweet gunk.

It's a shame because I love the smell and the texture, but even as a child I couldn't stand the taste fsad

You need to do blind tastings, with a large quantity of marshmallows and a note-taker.

I think so
I don't like the pink ones

I think they do, but very subtle... But I'm sure I'd be able to tell the difference if you gave me one of each!

Yes, different shapes and brands. For science.

This is a good idea. I'm happy to suffer a sugar coma for science.

THry do. Definitely.

I think yes (pink ones are nicer). I am prepared to blind test for you if needed <selfless devotion to The Truth>

The waitrose ones say that they are raspberry and vanilla, but it must be very subtle as I can't tell the difference.

I think they do.

MexicanBob Wed 13-Dec-17 22:13:23

No. They are both vile. HTH.

Mrsfluff Wed 13-Dec-17 22:16:03

They do taste differently. The white ones are my faves!

7ways Wed 13-Dec-17 22:20:34

They definitely taste different!

I will do a blind test and publish my results. They might need to be peer reviewed, though.

thefutureisours Thu 14-Dec-17 09:20:00

Yes. The white ones are much nicer!

RestingGrinchFace Thu 14-Dec-17 09:20:54

Yes. Definitely.

We did do blind taste tests at home (but not on Waitrose ones) and there was no difference in the taste according to our (extremely scientific) tests.

stickytoffeevodka Thu 14-Dec-17 09:39:49

Mhmm, definitely. I prefer the white ones.

Maudlinmaud Thu 14-Dec-17 09:44:23

Princess marshmallow's are the best, although can't compare them to waitrose as we don't have a store here. I do think the pink ones taste different. My god they are my favourite sweets of all time.

Zaphodsotherhead Thu 14-Dec-17 09:46:14

Oooh oooh, I'll peer review you!

mummyhaschangedhername Thu 14-Dec-17 13:24:08

Yes, they definitely do taste different. I only like the white ones.

HermionesRightHook Thu 14-Dec-17 13:27:06

Yes, total fact. They taste pink. HTH.
