A bag of Jet-Puffed Marshmallows

Jet-Puffed Marshmallows are a product of Kraft Foods, first introduced in 1958. It was sold as a national brand in 1959. It has more than 30 different flavors to its brand name.


It was first a simulated space ship, of one made by Aerojet-General Corporation, for Kraft to sell because it was in a limited market the first year. Nineteen U.S. cities had young people waiting in long lines for their chance to sit at the control panels they had from them. Kraft gave away the space ship as the top prize in the "Name the Space Training Ship" promotion they had going on.

In 1964 Jet-Puffed marshmallows began making Easter candies, cookies, and cupcakes. Kraft has offered a replica of the marshmallow dispenser that Spock used in the movie Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
