Everyone loves a great food truck! This one, however, is extra special! It is a unique (and delicious) idea that will please anyone with a sweet tooth! La Guimauverie sells gourmet marshmallows and s'mores. That's right, we have a s'mores truck in Ottawa! The business is owned by Mélanie and Robert Ladouceur.
We first came across this gem when shopping at The Original Navan Market. My gluten-free dairy-free kid was elated to discover that there were options available for her as well! She chose a delicious strawberry covered marshmallow treat, while my son chose one with chocolate and bananas!
Her reaction was just the reason that the Ladouceurs love what they do. They love "being able to offer treats that bring smiles and happiness to people and seeing their reaction when they first try it." Melanie shared.
The options are all drool-worthy, and can be served in a cone or in a tray.
Like us, La Guimauverie was an opportunity found amid the pandemic.
"The pandemic had temporarily shut down my husband’s Martial art business so we rolled up our sleeves and created a business filled with flavors an idea we thought about 4 years ago around a campfire. We were suppose to launch on the Rideau Canal Skateway, the NCC gave us the green light but after discussion with the OPH they decided it would be best not to open any concessions on the canal Skateway this year. We decided to give it a try anyway to test the market and our grand opening was February 29th in Navan where we live and where my husband grew up." Mélanie told us.
When not toasting marshmallows, the Ladouceur family can be found canoe camping with their kids.

Make it a goal to visit them (at least) once this summer. You won't regret it!
