  • Elise Gabriel

    I ADORE Dandies! Their jet-puffed vegan awesomeness puts a huge smile on my face. I recently made some s’mores brownies with them that got devoured before they were even completely cooled. So delicious.

  • SO glad Dandies exist! I couldn’t live without Chicago Soy Dairy! I love some rice krispy treats! MMM they’re so cute

  • Michelle Donlon

    I LOVE Dandies marshmallows! They are perfect for rice crispy treats, or any vegan marshmallow need.

  • yummy!! I’d loved to try them!! πŸ˜›

  • I love these and my son begs for marshmallows, but I can not always afford these.

  • Dandies would make it possible for me to make s’mores again!

  • Ohhh dandies! Making vegan smoring possible. Deliciously, deliciously possible.

  • I’ve never tried dandies. Care to change that?
    I know you would πŸ˜‰

  • Dandies make the best Rice Krispy treats!

  • Dandies marshmallows make awesome s’mores! Stick ’em to the end of a twig and roast over a fire until brown. Mmmm!

  • I was just thinking about making some vegan rocky road ice cream! I need to win these!!!

  • I have never tried Dandies, but I have always wanted to.

  • Dandies are amazing.

    I’ve been trying to make omni-approved rice krispy treats for my non-veg dad. Dandies are the ones that work the best, IMO. Plus, they are affordable enough that you don’t want to cry using a whole bag at once. LOL.

  • I miss the days of real contests, where you didn’t have to sign up to some website.

    You don’t even win stuff on soda bottle caps anymore. You have to register your code on a website, so they can put you on file and send you junk mail.


  • I’ve been searching for vegan marshmallows that really WORK in baking. I like to bake vegan goodies for my animal rescue benefits. These would be awesome! =)

  • I never tried marshmallows even back when I hoarded gelatin, so these have always interested me.

  • Oooh my !! I wanna try this πŸ˜›

  • Dandies are soooooo good! Smores! Campfires!

  • I would love to have some dandies for my camping trip!!!

  • Can’t wait to try these with s’mores!

  • I had these last summer when making vegan s’mores and they were phenomenal! I MUST try them w/ Rice Krispy treats.

    om nom

  • I want to try these so bad!! I want to make smores so bad but there’s no where to get vegan marshmallows around where I live πŸ™

  • I’ve never had Dandies…can’t wait to try them!

  • I just made plans to go camping and I sure would like some dandies for my smores!

  • Vegan kids + Dandies = REALLY HAPPY vegan kids!

    Raising vegan kids is a wonderful and beautiful way to give back to our world! My son is headed off to his first overnight camp next week – the only question? “Mom, I can bring Dandies, right??” : )

    Thank GOSH for Dandies!

  • i am really eager to try dandies, but can’t find them anywhere. homemade rocky road soy ice cream, please?!

  • I’m seriously considering having the Dandies logo guy tattooed, I love these so much. I didn’t even like marshmallows before I went vegan but these things are the food of the gods! Thank you Chicago Soy Dairy! xxx

  • Denise Vallejo

    If I win they will be put to good use: Homemade rocky road ice cream, my locally world famous rocky road chocolate cookies, and krispy treats. I think I’ll save the last bag for a pillow and late night secret eating.

  • Dandies are amazing! 4 bags is more like a one week supply around here, but I would be sure to do something fun and make a dessert with some of them… I promise I would only snarf down 3 of the bags. πŸ˜‰

  • Dandies are worth falling off the sugar wagon for!

  • umm, how have i not tried these yet? i can’t wait!

  • Dandies are sweet, tiny, and oh-so-yummy. I probably won’t win, but it’s my birthday on 6/25 and I’d LOVE to have enough marshmallows to show them off to my friends & family over the summer…and sneak a few for myself & my boyfriend as well πŸ™‚

  • Dandies are AMAZING!!!! ty ty ty!!!

  • I’d love to win – perfect for our summer camping trip!!

  • I already like Dandies on Facebook, that’s how I got here. I would LOVE to like them in real life, too. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I have a new vegetarian–trying to be vegan. I have never tried Dandies and would LOVE too! I had no idea marshmellows aren’t vegetarian until recently. I ‘liked’ ChicagoSoyDairy on facebook :).

  • I loooooooooooooooooooooove dandie’s marshmallows!!!!!!!!!

  • Just got some of these at Whole Foods yesterday. Yum! I will need to get more to try Rice Krispie treats!

  • I am a new vegan, just 5 months now, and I have not tried any vegan marshmallows yet. However, I would love to πŸ™‚

  • I want some dandies so I can recreate my childhood memory of a marshmallow contest where you get up front of your classmates and try to stuff so many marshmallows in your mouth that you almost choke but you keep going because you want the big kids to think you are tough but really you do end up choking on them and then you feel embarrassed and silly that you put yourself in a life threatening situation just to win a marshmallow contest.

    Actually, I think I’d rather make s’mores.

  • I would love to try Dandies marshmallows! I can think of many many sweet desserts to make with these!

  • I am a new vegan as well and only recently found out marshmallows have animal parts in them. Gross. However, I LOVE s’mores so would love to try out the vegan marshmallows.

  • I’ve never tried a dandie! so want to though. gonna be in CHI this summer. I wonder if the Soy Dairy does tours. And if at the end they have a big vat of Dandies that you can jump into a swim around like Scrooge McDuck?

  • i would love to make some vegan smores!

  • Those look tasty…..would make some old school Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows/Dandies.

  • I love Dandies, vegan marshmallowly goodness to the max!!!

  • I could go for a mouthful of these right about now! Nothing better than a cup of hot cocoa and melting marshmallows.

  • Hook a sista up with some of them fine Dandies!=)

  • I too have been wanting to try Dandies. I’ve only heard good things and would love to win them. I can tell you they will be seriously appreciated : )

  • Dandies make me smile! Pick me! Pick me!

  • Dandies make the best Rice Krispies treats!

  • I already liked them πŸ™‚

    Must have! Moved someplace very unvegan friendly – need consolation prizes πŸ˜€

  • So the challenge is a bag of dandies a week? IT’S ON.

  • s’mores are my most favorite treat, ever – so dandies are absolutely a MUST around here. love them!

  • These would go great with my homemade vegan graham crackers and farmer’s market chocolate! Thank you!

  • Crazy that I’ve never tried em even though they’re all over LA. The little marsh on the front is too frigin cute!

  • Love that there is a vegan alternative. I liked on FB

    misaacmom at gmail dot com

  • Dandies FTW. Very important in this upcoming summer bonfire season. Mmm smores & banana boats.

  • I love Dandies! I had some over the winter with hot cocoa but those babies are long gone!

  • Dandies are my favorite vegan junk food! Love them!

  • I LOVE these things, would love to win some Dandies!

  • I’m really amazed how many people here haven’t tried them. The air puffing really does make a difference compared to the super-dense, square-cut marshmallows.

  • Amber Johnson

    I would love to win me some Dandies! I can’t believe I have never heard of them.

  • ooo, yummy. i want these.

  • I love Dandies! They are ideal (and dangerous) for snacking.

  • dandies is yummy to my tummy… Now I could enjoy my summer favorite treat… smores over the camp fire

  • I LOVE Dandies! S’mores are one of my favorite treats, and I can have them now because of these! It would be fantastic if they could make Dandies in the bigger, standard marshmallow size. They are also amazing in hot cocoa!!

  • Linni [Linburger Cheez on Facebook!]

    I’m from Chicago, and I love that these are, too! But I am way too broke to afford a non-necessity food item like marshmallows. Please help this three-year vegan remember what rice krispie treats taste like!

    [it doesn’t hurt that I have an Appalachian Trail camping trip planned for August–these would go perfectly with my ghost stories!]

  • I really wanna make some s’mores with dandies!

  • I haven’t tried these yet, but I hope too soon πŸ™‚

  • I am in LOVE with Dandies!!! <3 They make my life happy πŸ™‚ I just wish they were more accessible to me πŸ™ I only get them about once a month, when I happen to venture to Santa Barbara and I DEVOUR the whole bag in 2 sittings (no kidding). Oh, and maybe I should mention that many times those 2 sittings happen in one day. I've been wanting to try to make rice krispie treats or smores, but I always seem to devour them too quickly :\

  • Andrea Miller

    I heart vegan marshmellows!!! Especially dandies!

  • Not gonna go through the trials and tribulations of making a fb account, but i just wanted to tell you that i think you’re that much more rad by referencing the Warhols in the title. :O! rock the fuck on!

  • I LOVE the folks with the Chicago Soy Dairy!

  • Quelle coincidence… I was at Meet Market yesterday and discovered the bags of Dandies. To be honest, I poked ’em to see if they were real.

  • I’ve gotten Dandies at the Meet Market before and they’re really good. I don’t think I could eat four bags by myself though.

    I used to play that album on KSPC when I was in college. I like “The Coffee and Tea Wrecks” and “Nothing”.

  • I have been wanting to try these! What a cool giveaway!

  • Suddenly I have visions of a smores-inspired vegan cupcake! And actual smores! And hot chocolate with little puffy, melty pillows of goodness floating on top!

  • YUMM! I’ve never tried Dandies, only the Sweet & Saras. I hope I get a chance to try Dandies, as I can never find them in my Veg grocery shop, always gone by the time I get there. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Yay Dandies!! πŸ˜€

  • i’ll use these to make tasty treats for my students if i win!

  • Oh yeah! Popcorn balls are my favorite way to use dandies.

  • I love Dandies, especially in a mug of hot chocolate.

  • Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!!!

  • mmmmmmm.

  • dandies are AMAZING! i’m not a vegan (just veggie), but who wants to eat gelatin? gross. these little guys are sooo good! they melt great, they’re awesome dunked in chocolate, or just out of the bag… yay for dandies!

  • Right on! This contest rocks and so do Dandies!

    Peace and vegan love.

  • there’s nothing like an animal product free s’more!!

  • I’ve only tried them once – too hard to find out here in the sticks! But they are AWESOME!!

  • Perfect for Smores!

  • So many things I could make with Dandies!

  • It sure would be dandy to win me some dandies!

  • XVX fo’eva!

  • I love dandies and their air puffed goodness! Brings me back to when I was little & roasting mallows in the fireplace!


  • Kevin Kocjancic

    these look awesome

  • Pass. If I have to join Farcebook to enter, no thanks.

  • Not exactly seasonal, but Dandies are THE BEST for vegan hot chocolate. πŸ™‚

  • Love dandies! Though the one time I bought them for myself, I ate them straight out of the bag before I could decide what to make with them…

  • I have been wanting to try these for so long! Fingers and toes crossed! πŸ™‚

  • I just made a pizza with dandies! I do love me some sm’ores!!

  • Yummy!!

  • I would love to try Dandies. I haven’t been able to find them in any stores in the area where I live.

  • the dandies rule. 4 bags would make for plenty of fantastic picnic treats all summer

  • I almost wept the first time I tried Dandies marshmallows! There is nothing even close that can compare. I could not veganize rice krispies treats or smores without them!!!!

  • There is nothing like waking up to a cup of homemade hot chocolate with some Dandies lazily melting therein. Thanks for inventing this incredible food, Chicago Soydairy!

  • Dandies are the best! I can’t wait to make vegan rice krispie treats with them — they’re so good they never lasted long enough before!

  • i was daydreaming about dandies just today. i want to make cupcakes and stuff them with a dandy like cream and then stick another dandy on top and then dip em in ganache. or maybe just rocky road brownies…


  • James Bilgihan

    Haven’t had them and would love to try. I haven’t had a marshmallow in close to 15 years (and I’m 33). If I can get a real rice crispy treat life would be so much better.


  • It has been so very long since I’ve had a marshmallow.

  • Jennifer Walker

    I haven’t had a marshmallow in years and I would love to try these!!! If I don’t win, I’ll definitely be buying!

  • I love Dandies! It’s awesome to be able to eat rice crispies again (and I haven’t even tried making smores yet!)

  • Love me some Dandies! Nom nom nom!

  • Dandies make the best Rice Krispy Treats ever!!! They taste so good!!!

  • As someone who enjoys a good cup of soy hot cocoa, I am thrilled to find wonderful vegan marshmallows to top it off! On those days when I feel like a cup of black coffee, I sometimes add a few marshmallows to spice it up! πŸ™‚

  • We LOVE Dandies! They are great for smores, all treats that require marshmallows, and they toast up great. Awesome product!

  • I want to make rice krispy treats for my children. They’ve never had them before since they are vegetarians, too.

  • Dandies are the best! My 11-year-old son loves them! It’s great to share them with his non-vegan friends and show them how great vegan treats can be.

  • I can’t wait to try Dandies!

  • I liked it on Facebook!
    Do I do a separate comment for each thing I do like with most giveaways?
    I suppose if not, if any of my later comments happen to win you could just re-roll.

  • Dandies are absolutely amazing! Unfortunately I have yet to use them in a recipe because I sample every bag and before I know it, the bag is empty. I’m going to have to start buying two bags at a time if I ever want to make anything with them.

  • I love Dandies! I’ve only had them once, and they were a little melty (I thought “Oh, I don’t need an ice pack, right?”) But they were still delicious roasted over a fire, and in cocoa. πŸ˜€

  • Oh my gosh! I would love to try these marshmallows. I have been vegan for almost 4 years and trust me I am ready for a smore. :o)

  • heather mchale

    i would love to try these!

  • They are so good, i made rice crispy treats before i went to work and when i cam home my boyfriend had eaten the whole pan πŸ™

  • I love Dandies marshmallows, especially in s’mores!!!

  • Dandies, Dandies, what a fun bunch.
    Dandies, Dandies, so good with my lunch.
    Peanut Butter and Dandies on my bread.
    Dreams of marshmallows fill my head.

    Dandies for breakfast.
    Dandies mid-day,
    Dandies for supper.
    Getting carried away!
    Dandies inspired poetry by Stephanie

  • oh please let me win this. dandies rock my world, free dandies would just about kill me with happiness.

  • I have wanted to try these so I can make s’mores…I’ve never had them before and they sound amazing!

  • oooooooooooo dandie smores. yum

  • now i can finally have smores! i love smores and miss them so much!

  • How timely! I just bought 4 more bags to send with my kids to overnight camp.

    Every year, I’ve noticed that more and more campers are bringing vegetarian marshmallows with them to the camp, and the food choices are getting easier for my kids and the growing number of veg*n campers and counselors.

    Having great options like the Dandies really helps.

  • i’d really love to try this product for the summer! i want my brother and i to be able to enjoy smores like the rest of the world.

  • Wanted to add: I do enjoy the flavors of the Sweet & Sara marshmallows, so we get them too…as a very occasional candy treat, though, not as our regular “marshmallows.” (There’s room on everyone’s grocery list for more than one brand of yummy treats.)

    Dandies are the ONLY choice for toasted marshmallows, s’mores, banana boats,…really, anything that people use conventional gelatin-based marshmallows for. There’s no equivalent anywhere. We are so glad Chicago Soydairy figured out how to make them!!

  • I need some vegan smores, stat!

  • I want to win these mainly for our son Seth, as he’s only had them a few times!
    Of course, we love them too!

  • Dandies are so delicious! There is really no need for Marshmallows with gelatin. Everyone should just have these instead, even if they are not a vegetarian.

  • Jazelle Jonesz

    I really want to try these!! They look so great!! πŸ™‚

  • I love these! I’ll use them to top of an icy “hot” chocolate!

  • Teddy Palenski

    I HAVE TRIED THESE THEY ARE TASTY! but expensive and not locally accessible for me! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  • Pete Jakubowski

    They are fantastic. Tried some at a friends house … now can’t wait to get my own!!

  • How convenient, I already “Like” Chicago Soydairy on FB. I need to try these!!

  • Vegan Marshmallows!!!!

  • It would be so DANDIE to win DANDIES! Would love to make rice krispie treats, hot chocolate and sMORE!!

  • Dandies are delicious! With 4 bags, I would throw a Dandies party. Yay, Chicago!

  • Jessica Osterberg

    The first time my family ordered these we intended to save them for camping. We ate them all in just a few days…very good!

  • I need some s’mores and can’t have them without Dandies, they’re a must!

  • I’m set with a ready supply of vegan hot chocolate, all I need is the marshmallows.

  • I LOVE Dandies! So far I’ve used them to top my hot chocolate and to just eat as a snack – I really need to try making rice krispy treats with them! Thanks for running this giveaway!

  • Free Dandies in time for fourth of july s’mores! yes, please!!

  • Dandies are dandy
    I want to win them so bad
    I wrote this haiku

  • The last time I bought a bag of Dandies, I ate the whole bag in two days. πŸ˜‰ I LOVE these things.

  • Anissa Catlett

    One word: Delicious! I have a smell and taste sensitivity and can pretty much tell the difference. Dandies mallows taste no different than the regular animal by products. I’m looking forward to this Thanksgiving to making my yams with these mallows. This is a brilliant item for vegans like myself.

  • although being vegan is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself, other creatures and the planet, it has a minor downfall: feeling left out. now, everyone knows camping is essential for a good summer, but it usually includes very omnivorous activites like hot dog eating, beer drinking, and s’mores making. vegan hot dogs and beers can be deliciously substituted, but s’mores are more difficult to modify. that is, until dandies showed up! dandies are the most delicious, planet-friendly marshmallows i have ever laid tastebuds on! the texture, burning/melting qualities, and taste are absolutely spot on. with some vegan grahams, dark chocolate, and dandies, i’m right back to that perfect camping trip. cheers to chicago soy dairy!

  • I want to try these…and win, too!!!!

  • I love Dandies. Especially in some vegan hot chocolate πŸ™‚ Yum!

  • I loooove Dandies! Can’t go camping without them.

  • These marshmallows are absolutely amazing. They toast up under flame just like the ones we remember from childhood. Ahhhhh~

  • we heart dandies! i have 4 little boys and these are a campfire must have! i did find out that it is important not to get them cold or they deflate and even seperate but even then they are still great for some killer rice krispie treats! yea vegan summer treats!

  • we heart dandies! i have 4 little boys and these are a campfire must have! i did find out that it is important not to get them cold or they deflate and even seperate but even then they are still great for some killer rice krispie treats! yea for vegan summer treats!

  • i have yet to try dandies. i hear they are delicious and have been dying to try them. last online vegan shop i ordered from was out :o(

  • Oh man, oh man, I need these dandy treats! It’s almost time for some s’mores around here!

  • I love dandies! It’s so hard to find vegan marshmallows. And, with the report, a few years ago, that came out that the majority of “vegan” marshmallows were actually not vegan it’s definitely hard!

    Thank you for making them!

  • Dandies are better than I remember marshmallows. I’d love to make some s’mores this summer.

  • Oooh, Dandies! I would love to try these! I was in Chicago recently and bought Chicago Soydairy’s Teese, but didn’t think to get any Dandies. Mmm, s’mores!

  • Dandies rule! I never thought I would have marshmallows again after going vegan, but lucky for us, Dandies are here and kick ass!

  • I’ve been hesitant to try them because of the cost. I’m a little worried that the free packages might get me hooked, but the average per package cost will then be lowered.

  • Oh man! Real smores this summer?! I hope I win!!

  • I haven’t tried any Chicago Soy Dairy products yet. I plan to go to a local restaurant that serves Teese.
    My daughter is moving to Chicago this August, so maybe I will have an “in”
    Since renewing my commitment to being vegan I have been wanting marshmallows. i’m going to look for these.

  • Been a fan of them on Facebook for quite some time and have been reading all about them since they first came on the scene. Would love the opportunity to try them as I guess I’ve just been afraid to as I have become more the “try before you buy” type. This sounds like the perfect opportunity! The 4 bags MIGHT last a week in this house, but with all these kids, I doubt it.

  • Madeleine Vadeboncoeur

    dandies are rockin!!!!

  • I was already a fan of chicago soydairy before they started making dandies — my only complaint is that they are always out when I need them (and, oh, do I NEED them!)

  • I couldn’t have s’mores when I went camping this past week because veg-friendly marshmallows are impossible to find in my area, and I am a s’more fiend, so I NEED THESE ! πŸ˜€

  • These things are so great to make rice krispies treats with!

  • i only tried them once, but they are memorably delicious.

  • Dandies are seriously the best vegan marshmallows (no refrigeration required)! Great for rice krispy treats or just to eat out of the bag. Highly recommended! Better buy two bags whenever you order some.

  • I used to make Rice Krispie treats with Ricemllow, until Dandies came to town. They are great! The first time I used Dandies to make the treats, my wooden spatual snapped in half. Perhaps due to the intense amazingness of Dandies… but more likely because the pan wasn’t hot enough and Dandies weren’t melting all the way. Anyway, that won’t happen again.

    I would love to have a Summer supply of vegan marshmallows!

  • “I am quite particular to delightful dandies”.

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dandies Marshmallows. They’ve given me back S’mores!!!!

  • I Love Chicago Soy Dairy!!!!!
    I love Dandies.

  • Four bags is NOT a month’s supply! A week’s worth maybe, but even that’s pushing it!

  • I love Dandies Marshmellows. We recently took a family trip to the Redwoods National Park and my vegan brother in law made smores with them. WOW they were great!

    I also just love popping them like popcorn while watching a movie.

    I also like melting them and putting them on my body. (Just seeing if you were actually reading this)


  • I <3 DANDIES!

    i'm a marshmallow-obsessed woman who gave up "real" ones over 30 years ago (gelatin, natch) and love having Dandies. They perfectly fill that marshmallow need… the taste is heaven to me <3 and i've been honestly grateful there is Chicago So Dairy's great alternative available…

  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for Dandies. My little boy would be in heaven with 4 bags of Dandies to roast over the fire. Please let him win!

  • Dandies are the best solution for the craving for marshmallows. We were thrilled to come across these. Thank you Dandies for filling in the missing marshmellowy, toast worthy, peep replacing, smorey-goodness piece! πŸ™‚

  • I want these marshmallowy treats. They would be so delightful to eat! I’ve never had a “real s’mores” before. Let dandies be the first to satiate my roasting thirst.

  • Vegan marshmallows make great s’mores!

  • Dandies are mofo awesome in brownies.

  • when i became a vegetarian i was so sad i could no longer eat rice krispy treats and s’mores. then i discovered dandies and they made me so delighted!

  • so awesome-I hope I win-they’d be perfect for our fam reunion

  • Jessica Lopez

    mmmmm vegan puffy stuff!

  • Dandies: Perfect for campfires

    (You can burn the crap out of them and there’s no weird unburned ball left on your stick.)

  • Hellz Bellz!!! This just completely changed my life. Thank god for Dandies! Thank you yet again quarry girl!

  • I love Dandies! They are the best marshmallow out there. Thanks for the contest!

  • I think Dandies are just Jim Dandy.
    n. pl. jim-danΒ·dies Informal
    One that is very pleasing or excellent of its kind

  • I haven’t had a smore in a long time, even before going vegan! I would love to use Dandies! Thank goodness for a company that remembers us lovable vegans.

    Thank you for the contest!

  • I am ever looking for good vegan marshmellows! I’ve never tried Dandies, but they sure look delicious! I can’t wait to find them (or win them!) so I can taste!! πŸ™‚ Great contest thank you!

  • there should be a “love” facebook option…cause i love these things.

  • Listen – my birthday is the first day of summer, sweet summer solstice – YES I am a proud vegan and I NEED THESE,!!! IN MY MOUTH, HAHA no but seriously I make vegan smores cupcakes and this is gonna be my ace in the hole for the final tweeking of the recipe! Camp-o-ween (Holloween Camping trip with the tastiest vegan treats) here we come!

  • Dandies let vegan kids of all ages enjoy the All-American summer delicacy known as s’mores. Thank you Chicago Soy Dairy!

  • I miss s’mores so bad. Yeah, I could by Dandies, but why buy when I could win?

  • i JUST found these at the whole foods by my work and got some vegan chocolate and proper graham crackers and made the BEST S’MORES EVER on my gas stove-haha!!! πŸ™‚ thank you dandies for making vegan life soooooo incredibly YUMMMMMY!!!! πŸ™‚ i hope i win because i am now addicted! πŸ˜›

  • These marshmallows are great in recipes and just good eating too. Hope to win some!

  • I’ve been wanting to try these for ages!

  • I want me some dandies to try to recreate the Chicago Diner’s S’mores milkshake!!!

    Miami, FL is in desperate need of Chicago Soy Dairy products.

  • ooh I would love to try these…

  • after a 10-year gap in my mallow consumption, these were like mana! πŸ˜€ yum!!!

  • LOVE THEM! s’morestime!

  • I really want to make some s’mores

  • Dandies – are just that – just DANDY!!!!
    Got them from Vegan Essentials – I am lucky enough that my parents live near to the Milwaukee area and am able to go to the Store Directly and I cant tell you it doesnt get any better then that!! And one of the best reasons is being able in one place get me some tasty delicious Chicago Dairy Products – Those who do not know – the Green Tea Ice Cream – and even better the Peach Cobler Ice Cream are to die for!!!!
    big big fan!!!
    keep it up over there in the windy city!!

  • the most disappointing part of my camping trip falling apart last weekend is the sad sight of a bag of dandies in my fridge just waiting to be used. guess i have to try again this weekend!

  • Living in MA, I have not had the opportunity to taste any of these great vegan wonders yet. But, I can dream. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  • I tried Dandies once in making krispie treats & they worked pretty well. I’d love to win these so I can make vegan smores with my 4-year-old!

  • These are such a blessing to my GF/vegan daughter. We usually travel about 50 minutes each way when we want our fix of these. It’s one of the few vegan items my parents will eat … last fall, we put them on top of our Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole and the whole big omnivorous family ate it up without hestiation!

    Of course, I know that four bags of Dandies won’t make it to Thanksgiving. But we’ll have a GREAT time munching them down nonetheless!

  • Dandies are like little pieces of puffed heaven. My friend gave me a couple bags a few months ago & I have been in love with them ever since. Being a vegetarian now for 20 years I have not had rice krispie treats in a very very long time. I was so excited to be able to have them again. They we delicious and my non-veggie friends thought so too!

  • best vegan marshmallows,ever!

  • I have been wanting to try these they sound so good. Do they carry these at Whole Foods?

  • I’ve been wanting to make vegan rocky road ice cream & 4 bags of dandies would allow me to make enough for the whole neighborhood. I love surprising everyone with vegan goodies.

  • I REALLY want to try these!!!

  • Caitlin Buddingh

    I love vegan marshmallows. Whenever I bring a vegan treat to a family gathering everyone wants to try it to see what it is like, but then I’m sad because there is less for me. Choose me to win so I have more to go around for my mooching family!

  • i’d love to try these… and to share my winnings!

  • Hoping I win the dandies!

    I think you have some people trying to enter the contest confused, thinking they need to post a comment & their email on Facebook.

    Where can Dandies and your other products be purchased in the Philadelphia area?

  • I haven’t tried these but I love Chicago Soy Dairy and I am always excited to see vegan marshmallows. Marshmallows in my coco and smores being some of the very very few things I missed when going veggie years ago and vegan 4 months ago πŸ™‚

  • matthew ralston

    ive never tied these but they look great

  • How have I not tried these yet? Crossing my fingers to win this for some campfire s’mores this summer!!

  • These Dandies sound delish! I can never fine any good vegan marshmallows.

  • I can’t find Dandies anywhere in Milwaukee right now and I need to make some rocky road bars! Nom nom nom.

  • just got back from camping. no dark chocolate, honey free smores for me! boo hoo! i want dandies smores!

  • My kids LOVE these marshmallows. If they see them in the pantry, they’ll eat a whole bag in no time! These marshmallows are also great in crisped rice treats. πŸ™‚

  • Thank you so much for making a marshmallow that can be eaten without gelatin! This is awesome!

  • These are so yummy!

  • These are the best and melt just like other marshmallows! We love them!

  • Chicago Soydairy: My son Zach is 20 and has been a vegetarian on his own since he was 7 years old. Even though I get created with meals for him, He has missed out on some great treats and other foods. He does not eat gelatin, red dye, any bases,seafood animal and or fats. I would love for him to have the opportunity to eat rice crispy treats, marshmallows for over the campfire and smores, hot coco and other delicious things he has never experienced. This is the first time I have heard of your product and addition to winning marshmallows etc.. I would like to get otherinfo of your products. THANKS πŸ™‚ Cheryl

  • mmmm dandies, how i love to roast you over a nice clean fire…

  • I must have already ‘liked’ Chicago Soydairy on my FB page because it’s not an option anymore. hmmm

    In any event, Dandies have made marshmallows doable again. Seriously, I keep a bag on the counter just for s’mores but would love to try them in a bunch of recipes. Or send some to friends who can’t get them in their towns.

  • I love Dandies! I’m from Chicago and so are they!

  • Please come to the UK, P&P triples the price. They are the only marshmallows worth trying…

  • My allergic children love these (and therefore I love them)!

  • I love Dandies!! They are such cute, sweet, pillowy goodness…mmmmmm and make the best s’mores – took camping and everyone loved them, even the meat eaters!

  • Oh, Dandies. Please come into my life. I long so for smores. I ache so for rice krispie treats… The thought of you melting into my warm cup of unsweetened soy hot carob, well it just…

    Seriously, Dandies? Hot carob!?

    The situation is desperate. Save me. Break up the monotony of my boring almond butter existence!


  • dandies + hot chocolate = pure joy.

  • Would love to bring these dandies on my next camping trip! Thanks!

  • I love marshmallows, and have missed them being vegan but with the help of dandies my life will soon be complete again.

  • I am soooooo glad that there are enough vegans out there that people actually take the time to make fake versions for us! Yay marshmallows!!!!

  • Dandies are the best marshmallows ever!

  • Dandies are the best in the world!!My mama even pays lots of money for them and we get them in a package. I’m allergic to lots of things but I get to have smores and rice krispie treats now!!! I always can’t wait to have them!!

  • My little vegan boys love to help in the kitchen! We’d love to make rice krispy treats, s’mores, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, rocky road bars, and pop some in hot cocoa. Can’t wait to try Dandies!

  • I have not heard of these before and I can not wait to try them. My kids will be so excited.

  • Randy Raphael

    I’ve been wanting to try these! None of the stores here carry them! I haven’t had a marshmallow in over 14 years!

  • Dandies are the BEST marshmallows I have ever tasted!!!!
