Flumps (although people do sometimes mistakenly refer to these as ‘a Flump’) is a classic marshmallow treat from Barratt
– we all remember spending our pocket money on these, don’t we?
The famous Flumps sweet is a combination of long white, blue, pink, and yellow marshmallow cables, twisted or plaited together in a helix shape to give Flumps its famous cable look. We love everything about Flumps. Not only do the pastel colours bring back childhood memories alongside the famous shape, but the soft, squidgy almost powdery texture is both satisfying to the touch and moreish in your mouth. So what flavour are Flumps? Well, the answer is a classic vanilla, a firm favourite for everyone.
Not only do Flumps taste amazing, but perhaps best of all, Flumps are completely fat-free! So why not treat yourself?
Flumps are also Coeliac or Celiac friendly and with Gluten-free
ingredients, more people can enjoy these classic retro marshmallow treats.
So what is the difference between Flumps and marshmallows? Well, whilst both are marshmallow sweets
, we just cannot hide our love for classic Flumps with their unique shape, texture, and colours. At around 20cm long, it might be difficult to toast Flumps over an open fire or add them to a comforting mug of Hot Chocolate but in short, they’re great to eat on their own!
We can’t talk about Flumps without mentioning the 70s children’s TV show of the same name – The Flumps - which ran for eleven years from 1977. Who can forget the classic, trombone theme-tune which has appeared on a handful of TV adverts in the 21st century? Whilst the two are unrelated, if you want a huge dose of childhood, retro nostalgia why not watch The Flumps whilst munching on Flumps!
Oh, and another bonus, ‘flumps’ is a completely valid word when playing Scrabble, one to remember when playing board games with the family which can’t be said for every well-known sweet favourite.
We love Flumps. Tasty, soft, squidgy but completely fat-free – what is not to love? Purchase Flumps today at A Quarter Of and you won’t be disappointed.
