I've been immersing myself in this site over the past several days, and I came across a post on page 30 or so that talked about using store brand marshmallows when making MMF. Some said that store-brand were superior to jet puffed.

I bought 3 bags of 16oz jet puffed marshmallows to make my first batches of MMF. I always thought that jet-puffed were the best brand, and they would be the best to use.

Any feedback is appreciated!
TIA!

I have always used the store brand from walmart and never had a problem! However the Albertson's brand was a big sticky mess!

I've used both Acme and Kraft brands of jet-puffed MM and I've never had a problem. They both melted well in the microwave and on the stovetop, as well.

I always use jet-puff, I tried the noname ones before and found that the MMF became to stiff and didn't roll well.

Interesting question! I've used both and I had problems with the Jet puffed being really sticky in the bag which drove me crazy. It came out just as beautifully as the generic, but if I had to choose, I'd go with the store brand for price and quantity, not to mention, no stickiness. Of course, it could just be the heat and humidity of living in Central Texas!
