A Marshmallow worth eating
In 1907, Theodosia’s travels to Egypt while fighting off the Serpents of Chaos, returning the Emerald Tablet and discovering long lost temples with her archeologist mother of the British Museum of Antiquities, was certainly a major undertaking, to say the least.
And it is clearly understandable that perhaps one of the most important finds of this eleven year old wunderkind was forgotten.
As you know, Theodosia spent much time “on digs” in the dusty and dry desert. But did you know that marshmallow, as in the white puffy thing that we roast over the open fire, in fact started as medicinal candy for young children in ancient Egypt?
By combining honey and a stickey, gooey plant called mallow, which is found in the salt marshes near large bodies of water. This meringue like candy was made to soothe a child’s dry, sore throat.
It was Miss Throckmorten's adventures and subsequent extended exposure to dust and minimal water intake that brought her to seek an edible salve. With Gadji’s help, Theodosia was able to cure her ailments with the medicinal marsh-mallow and return to Britain in good health.
These Snowmen and Christmas trees are a joy to play with and ultimately consume. The mallow is long gone, as is the honey, but the mental satisfaction remains and reminds us of childhoods past and childlike futures.
Get them for yourself or the explorer in your life!
