A sweet shop for Dreampuff

dreampuff sweet shop exteriorCheck it out: Dreampuff Marshmallows now has its own shop, on Hoosick Street in Troy. The shop has been in a soft open until its official opening day today, according to its Facebook page.

Somehow this had slipped our notice -- the Biz Review mentioned it last month. And the Troy Record has an article about the shop today.

You might have seen Dreampuff at local farmers' markets. The company is the creation of Ginny O'Neill, a computer software engineer turned confectioner/baker. She started out making a line gourmet marshmallows in flavors such as strawberry, chocolate, saffron, and... bacon. As she explained to us back in 2010:

Actually I made them first because of an aunt's comments in a travel journal. She just really loved marshmallows so she had all kinds of comments about all kinds of marshmallows she had tried. I started making them, and I just really enjoyed it. And then i started getting a little creative and it was just fun.

She's since expanded to a whole line of different treats.
