You know winter’s coming when…

They’re $3 a box at Fairway.

And Wikipedia knows what’s up:

Dangerous Environments

Warm environments are not the only dangerous ones for Mallomars and their cousins. Because of the numerous air pockets within the marshmallow, changes in air pressure can cause drastic changes in the size of the biscuit, thus destroying the integrity of the chocolate coating. For instance, most airlines keep their aircraft cabins pressurized at a level which is slightly below that of normal ground pressure. This can ruin the unblemished surface of such a cookie, removing part of the visual pleasure and anticipation that comes when the box is opened. Fortunately, this does not affect the unmistakable strong chocolate aroma.

Bwog reminds you to make sure you eat your mallomars before you retreat to your E.C. highrise.

  1. yummmmmmmm  

    is it wierd that i had no idea these were seasonal?

    in related news, you can get peeps year-round these days at Dylans

    • from wikipedia:  

      "Mallomars melt easily in summer temperatures and can become difficult to find during the summer. Devoted eaters of the cookie have been known to stock up during winter months and keep them refrigerated over the summer. Seventy percent of all Mallomars sold are sold in metropolitan New York, and a majority of the rest are sold in outliers such as Miami and Los Angeles, which have large populations of expat New York Jews."

  3. mallow cups  

    does anyone remember Mallow cups? They were like peanut butter cups but with a strange marshmallow like substance in them..... best when frozen

  4. Speaking of EC  

    I was most aggrieved at yet another fire alarm today in EC at about 2pm. If it's from the same suite as last time, I think it's high time that we make an effort to impose our Diverse and Tolerant Community Standards upon them. Can we pretty please banish them to Wien, where their careless cooking will no longer inconvenience their 720 neighbors, and, more seriously, will no longer contribute to the false-alarm culture that can be fatal when there is an actual fire.
