"Tantalizing, delectable, and Artisan" are the three words used to describe The Pink Spatula's gourmet marshmallows by founder, Tina Bacon, who passed away in April 2015 by terminal cancer.
In honour of Tina's legacy, we continue to create Tina's pillowy and decadent treat that brings back joy, warmth, and childhood memories. Using only excellent ingredients that contain real fruit, liqueurs, and spices, we ensure that your experience is worth every bite.
Marshmallow Maven Tina Bacon lived in Mission, BC with her husband and three young 'Bacon Bits'. She started The Pink Spatula in 2009 after battling and overcoming breast cancer. Her desire was to create small batches of sweets using real ingredients free of preservatives, additives, and artificial flavours and colours.
Tina knew the value of smiles and loved to watch them spread across people's faces as they bit into the most amazing marshmallows. Her love for people flowed into all the work that she did with The Pink Spatula – creating, learning, never giving up, and always staying optimistic. Her dedication paid off when she earned the Business Excellence Award from the Mission Chamber of Commerce and was acclaimed in both Maclean’s Magazine and the Huffington Post.
Unfortunately, Tina’s battle wasn’t over as she was diagnosed with cancer again in 2013. Despite her health struggles, she never ceased to amaze people with her joyful attitude and continued to make these sweet pillows of gooey goodness.
Tina passed away on April 12th, 2015.
To honour The Pink Spatula’s legacy, Kitchening&Co. recreates Tina’s heart-filled marshmallow recipes in remembrance of Tina’s bravery and optimism that she brought to the community.
