Marshmallow Peanuts are one of those classic candies that have been popular for generations. Also known as Circus Peanuts, this colorful variety is delicious and fluffy, and a hit with everybody. The best part is that you don't have to go to the circus to enjoy them (sometimes those clowns can be creepy).
Did you know that the original Orange Marshmallow Peanuts were created in the 1800's but didn't become popular right away because the company had a hard time developing adequate packaging to lock in freshness for this candy? Thank goodness they figured it out.
It wasn't until the early 1900's and the advent of food coloring that these melt in your mouth treats became available in multiple colors.
