Perhaps you are familiar with the 2 option version of the classic Marshmallow Test, wherein you can have one now or two later? Something about "self control" and children and how there are two kinds of young people, good and bad, I guess. In this version there are 8 options. Potentially there are as many options for the test as there are misunderstandings of what motivates young people, so, infinity. But this is one has 8.

I encourage you to try them all, and/or to play them with a friend, if possible. Is this a game? Kind of.

The PDF is free and available in black and white or "exam booklet blue." The paper zines are $5 and are very pretty. There are also special deluxe paper zines for $10 that come with an individually wrapped, absolutely edible and real set of two marshmallows that say "SELF CONTROL" on them, which I agree is very funny.

If you buy one of the physical items please do not forget to put your name and mailing address in the box that asks for it during checkout. For some reason it's easy to miss. I don't know why. If you forget or miss it somehow, you can always email me at julian.k.jarboe (at) gmail (dot) com to let me know where to send your thing.

Printed Zine & Printed Marshmallows (Yes)

Zine Only

Printed and assembled by hand to order. Colors vary, but typically a combination of candy pinks, blues, and yellows. Occasionally wacky-zacky greens, purples, and oranges, too, because I get this paper in rainbow variety packs which means anything is possible.

Zine & Pack of 2 Marshmallows - Pre-Order

The same zine and marshmallows but a second batch that I will make to whatever number are ordered by December 10th-ish. Allows a week-ish after then for turnaround, assuming some of you want these as holiday presents for the most unsettling cup of festive cocoa you or your loved one ever has.

Zine & Pack of 2 Marshmallows - In Stock Now

These are my in-stock initial batch and they came out absolutely perfect. Cost includes shipping within the United States, and I do post office trips about twice a week.
