Boomf gives you a way to savor your favorite moments – with your mouth.

Boomf is the latest offering from Mint Digital, which successfully brings new meaning to the phrase “looks good enough to eat.” The idea is straightforward enough, pick nine of your favorite Instagram photos, after which they will be printed onto some 4cm x 4cm vanilla marshmallows that are shipped straight to your door.

Just to be clear, Boomf is only available in the UK right now, but there are plans to introduce international shipping next year. One box of nine marshmallows costs £12 ($19), which if ordered before noon are shipped the same day. The site advises using relatively simple images with good contrast, which means no concert photos or crowded parties.


There’s no doubt the marshmallows will make a great gift for you or a friend, but keep in mind you can only connect to your own Instagram account through the Web app right now. So, unless you know your friend’s password, the picture options are a little more limited.

Don’t expect the squishy treats to win any nutritional awards, but do expect them to taste delicious. If you’re not a fan of vanilla, then you will have to wait until next year when more flavors have been developed.
