The Marshmallow Co. and Sony Pictures Television announce adorable Ghostbusters marshmallow giveaway

To mark the digital release of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, Sony Pictures Television and The Marshmallow Co. are gifting fans with “edible ‘Mini-Puft’ marshmallows” on May 18.

The announcement:

Sony Pictures Television has announced it is teaming up with Australian based gourmet marshmallow makers The Marshmallow Co. to give away 100 edible ‘Mini-Puft’ marshmallows to Australian fans this Saturday, 18 May to celebrate the digital release of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, which is now available to buy or rent at home.

The announcement follows the release of a viral TikTok video by The Marshmallow Co. last week, revealing how they brought the mischievous Mini-Pufts to life – and how the Mini-Pufts quickly set about running amok in their factory. The video has more than 470K views, with countless comments from Ghostbusters fans dreaming of taking their own Mini-Puft home.

Inspired by the cheeky Mini-Puft characters from Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the marshmallow giveaway comes ahead of the 40th anniversary of the iconic 1984 original Ghostbusters on 8 June and coincides with Australia’s own National Marshmallow Day, which falls on Saturday, 18 May.

To claim your free Mini-Puft marshmallow, simply visit themarshmallow.co from 9AM AEST on Saturday, 18 May and load up your cart with $40.00 of any combination of products to unlock the free gift with purchase. The first 100 people to order will receive a Mini-Puft marshmallow, limited to 1 per order and available to Australian residents only.

“Ghostbusters fans have always wanted to take their own bite out of the iconic Stay-Puft Marshmallow character. Now, with the help of The Marshmallow Co., we are thrilled to bring Australian fans their own edible Mini-Puft, inspired by the adorable characters who get up to so much mischief in Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire,” said Gabrielle Davies, head of features marketing for Sony Pictures Television.

“We couldn’t be more chuffed to collaborate with Sony Pictures Television to bring the Mini-Pufts to life for Aussie Ghostbusters fans. The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is by far the most popular request we get from our fans on social media and to finally have a chance to bring these guys to life has been awesome. Standing almost four inches tall, these vanilla critters are practically life sized! Hopefully they don’t get up to too many of their tricks once lucky fans receive them,” said Joel Twyman, co-founder of The Marshmallow Co.
