Prince Harry Reveals He's Never Toasted A Marshmallow

Prince Harryhung out with a group of teens at a U.K. nature reserve on Monday and revealed a personal tidbit that left many baffled

“I’ve never toasted marshmallows over a campfire. They’re too sweet for me,” Harry told kids in Lancashire, according to People. “But I’ve made campfires and slept under the stars more than I’ve slept in a bed.”

Of course, we understand why a sweets-averse person might eschew this classic camping treat. Marshmallows used to be made from the root of a marshmallow plant, but nowadays they’re made from gelatin, which is arguably less appetizing and not the best look if you’re vegan or looking to get in on the health benefits of a vegan diet. And overall, ’mallows aren’t healthy: A standard serving contains about a third of the recommended daily allowance for added sugar, which becomes obvious when you watch how Peeps are made. Plus, who would want to take food cues from Ivanka Trump?

However, occasional indulgences are acceptable, and we’ve seen enough tantalizing marshmallow recipes to argue Harry should give them another try. His sister-in-law’s brother does run a speciality ’mallow company, after all. 

Here are a few marshmallow treats Harry (and we!) should cook up soon.
