First of all, did you know that porn star Ron Jeremy was in Ghostbusters? Dude, he totally was. He was an extra in a crowd scene towards the end of the flick . Another Ghostbuster’s little known fact is that I have mad obsession with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. When I first saw Ghostbusters and first set eyes on that gigantic mass of mallow, sailor wardrobe and all it was love at first site. He looked so remarkably harmless…and tasty. I always believed that he never really wanted to destroy the Ghostbusters. He was under some evil spell and couldn’t help himself. If someone just gave him a hug I’m sure he could have broken Gozer’s mind control. Suffice to say I love Mr. Stay Puft. Peanut Butter and Fluff. Smores. Rice Crispy Treats. My penchant for delicious gooey treats is all thanks to him.
Now, as kid I always did wonder why I couldn’t find Stay Puft Marshmallows in the store. Of course, I was like 5 at the time and had no idea that products in movies were completely fictional. Regardless, you’d think that after all years that some merchandiser, somewhere would have seized the opportunity and market Stay Puft Marshmallows to the masses. Christ, Ecto-Cooler (memba that?) stayed on the market from 87′-2001. You damn well know Stay Puft Marshmellows would have had the same success if not more.
Well, there is good news. I can finally put my childhood and adult life rage to rest. Because…..(drumroll)…., Stay Puft Marshmallows are finally on the market!!! Yep, it’s true. It’s a new product from the glorious bastards at thinkgeek.com
From the moment we saw that giant, smiling Destroyer of Worlds, our sweet tooth called out for revenge. Revenge for the bits of New York crushed. Revenge for the . . . ok, so not really revenge – we just wanted marshmallows. And even Walter Peck being covered in blobs of melted mallow man weren’t enough to crack our craving. It’s taken over 25 years, but we finally have the stuff that childhood dreams are made of: Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows!
