Sweet & Sara’s Vegan Smores

Looking for a vegan dessert that doesn’t taste like cardboard? The Long Island City-based Sweet & Sara makes a variety of homemade and hand cut vegan marshmallow treats. Their peanut & jelly smore is a top seller that combines decadent dark chocolate, super thick peanut butter, a flavorful mashmallow and buttery graham cracker. They also make a fantastic seasonal matcha smore and a pumpkin spice smore. Their Rice Krispy Treats and flavored marshmallows also are good sweet snacks. You can buy their products in stores, online or pick up your order at their factory in Queens.
