Marshmallow Misstep!

Girl reading a book
For days before driving to Brevard, NC and the 5th Annual White Squirrel Festival, where I spent two wonderful days reading and signing books at The White Squirrel Shoppe, I was stumped! What could I bring as a snack for the children that was not messy, did not pose a choking hazard, was allergy-free and did not have a paper wrapping? Nuts were obviously out as were lollipops, candy kisses and crumbly pretzel sticks. Thinking, “What would white squirrels like to eat that children like too?” it suddenly came to me. Marshmallows! I could offer the children white, fluffy marshmallows and have a little fun with it all claiming it to be a favorite food of white squirrels!
