Mallomars in KC?

Katie Nell Oct 25, 2007 10:38 AM

Okay, I've never had one! I've looked on Nabisco's website, but their product finder doesn't seem to be working. I e-mailed them too, but haven't had any luck. On Wikipedia, it says 70% are sold in NYC, so I don't how good my odds are. My obsession with Gilmore Girls has lead me to an obsession with trying mallomars. Any idea where to find some?

    Katie, I saw them in Walmart last week, the one on Shawnee Mission Parkway out by 435. Is there another brand that's the same type cookie? It might not have been the Nabisco brand ones. I've never had one either.

      I'll have my husband check out Wal-mart for me then- I hate going there! All for the good of the mallomar!

      I have seen them here in Tulsa in the last week also. I don't know about Wal-Mart, I think I saw them at Petty's Gourmet market

            Target ought to have them. In mine, they are up on a high shelf, in a yellow box.

          So... I found them at the Wal-mart at 119th and Metcalf, like amyzan suggested. I just happened to be there grabbing some stuff for work, and there they were! I ate one, and set the rest out at work. I didn't like them at all. Not what I envisioned... the marshmallow was spongey and the chocolate was waxy. I do, however, think it would be great fun to make your own mallomars and make them much, much better. :-) C'est la vie!

            I'm glad to hear you found them, Katie, but sorry they were disappointing. Isn't it funny how something so hyped can in actuality not be great at all? Maybe not all that many Americans have had great chocolate and tasty, springy marshmallow, hmmm...

              Marshmallow should be gooey like God and Valomilk intended.

                It just depends on how much gelatin is in the recipe, and different marshmallows are good for different applications. Personally, I like all kinds, as long as they're well flavored--gooey, springy, whatever, marshmallow is good stuff. I gotta say, though, it'd be dificult to make Mallomars the shape they currently are with gooey, liquid marshmallow like a Valomilk has inside. They'd have to redesign the cookie to be a container like the Valomilk chocolate cup or they'd become a mess in shipping.
