Mallomar Cookies consist of a graham biscuit on the bottom, topped by a dollop of marshmallow.
Both are coated with a thin layer of dark chocolate.
The chocolate is poured over the assembled cookie, rather than the cookie dipped into it.
70% of all production is sold in New York.
Mallomar Cookies are made by Nabisco, except in the summer months: Nabisco says they are too hard to ship in the heat.
Tunnock’s Teacakes, Mallomar Cookies, Whippet Cookies, Moonpies and Krembos are quite similar. Whippets are the longest-made of these.
Mallomars were first made in West Hoboken, N.J., in 1913.
