Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Sandlot, one of the greatest kids movies of all time. To celebrate, we’re recreating the perfect s’more (as taught by Ham Porter), with one little substitute: vegan marshmallows!tumblr_lyosrfulqa1qmnxe3o1_400 We love Dandies original vanilla vegan mallows — packed with soy protein. Pair with your preferred graham and chocolate, and you’re ready to go!
