What Are Sponch Cookies?
Marinela Sponch Cookies are marshmallow cookies with strawberry and coconut toppings. In particular, sponch cookies are made from shortbread and are topped with four marshmallows: two marshmallows are pink while the other two are white. The marshmallows of the sponch cookies are also usually topped with fruit and coconut flavorings. Sponch cookies offer you convenient snacking for any time and place. Whether you're at work, at home or out and about, these cookies make for good snacks to eat at your leisure.
How Many Calories per Cookie?
Marinela Sponch Cookies contain 110 calories in every cookie. Along with the 110 calories, each cookie contains only 1 gram of saturated fat, a mere 35 mg of sodium and 13 grams of sugar. The low saturated fat and sodium contents in these marshmallow cookies make them a surprisingly healthy dessert snack. It's good to manage your intake of saturated fats and sodium because eating too much of the two can lead to increased health risks. For example, eating too much saturated fat can result in increased risk for heart disease, weight gain and increased levels of bad cholesterol. Meanwhile, eating too much sodium can result in an increased risk of high blood pressure, which can lead to cardiovascular disease if left untreated.
Benefits of Artificial Flavoring
The strawberry topping used for these sponch cookies is artificially flavored. And no, that's not a bad thing. There are actually quite a few benefits for foods to use artificial flavorings. One benefit is that artificial flavors are much more regulated and researched than natural flavors. This means that the artificially flavored strawberry topping on your marshmallow cookies has been rigorously tested and approved for your safety to eat it. Also, artificial flavors cost less to produce and are not sourced from plants or animals. The lower cost of artificial flavors allows you to buy the food for a lower price.
