The Pete's Gourmet Story
We are a kosher candy company based in Southern Oregon, founded by
Peter and Jennifer Croyle in 2002. Privately owned and operated,
we specialize in unique gourmet flavored marshmallows, artisan
chocolates, old fashioned candies, and caramels, all made with lots of care. Our delicious eco-kosher marshmallows are made in small
batches and hand-cut to size or formed into shapes by our crafty
confectioners. We pride ourselves in the delicious flavors,
wonderful gift boxes, presentations and quality we create with our products.
How Our Confections Got Their Start
As a young child, Peter
would regularly stand at the side of his grandmother's apron
assisting her in making her delicious, homemade marshmallows. When Peter's son turned four, those memories of cooking
marshmallows and candies with his grandmother were reawakened.
Disappointed in the texture and tastes of what
store bought marshmallows had become, Pete
found himself drawn to the kitchen in a quest to recreate the same tastes and
experiences he had delighted in as a child for his son and daughter.
After hundreds of batches, Peter finally perfected his grandmother's famous
marshmallow recipe, Pete's Original Mallows.
His son, Ethan, was enchanted by the
marshmallows and together they began to create stories about a
little boy named Marshall Mallow who lived in a land where
marshmallows grow on trees. One day, while picking mallows,
Marshall hoped to pick strawberry and lemon mallows from the tree.
flavored mallows were born.
It was just a matter of
time before Marshall's mallows dipped into the caramel river and
immersed themselves under a waterfall of luscious dark chocolate.
