Until a couple of weeks ago, marshmallows weren't exactly on our radar as a fancy treat. The only kind we were really familiar with were the kind you buy in bulk for s'mores and promptly forget about in your pantry.
But Viveltre Marsmallows aren't that kind of marshmallows - these are the kind you hide from the rest of your family so you can eat them all yourself... or the kind you could give as a gift if you're feeling generous. They come in an array of decadent flavors like Red Velvet and Bacon Bourbon.
If your mouth isn't watering yet - what's wrong with you? But we're here to offer some relief; Viveltre is offering 3 dozen marshmallows in flavors of your choice to one lucky Outblush reader! See the giveaway form below to enter, and good luck!
Just use the entry form below; you have until 10/13/2014 at noon Pacific to enter!
