Every new business has a story behind it, sometimes it’s painful and other times full of drama and excitement. Katherine Sprung’s story began in the simplest way. She tried a marshmallow recipe and loved it… from there she began experimenting with recipes, trying them out with her family and friends, and within a very short time was eager to start her own business. As a former DJ, tech startup-er, and voice-over artist she says she never saw "marshmallow maker" in her future, but it’s been a great and exciting road to success.

The goal of Squish Marshmallows is to make quality, delicious marshmallow products that make people happy and change the way they view the “humble marshmallow.” Katherine was the Chopped Sweets champion in the year 2020 and has enjoyed making connections with customers the world over.
