To anyone who asks why I decided to buy a humongous $45 Squishmallows stuffed animal at the age of 28, I tell them – just wait until you touch one. My teal dragon, Miles, has won over my heart. He is the softest, bounciest, most comforting companion. And yes, he feels just like a marshmallow. I hang out with him every day.

Apparently, I am not alone in my profuse love for these ultra-plushy toys. Squishmallows, which have only been around since 2017, have taken TikTok by storm. Just a quick peruse of the hashtag #squishsetup (to date amassing seven million views) proves that owning several – and buying organizational shelves or the like for them – is not uncommon. Squishmallows come in a wide variety of characters largely taking after animals like the extremely popular cow, but they also come in the form of foods. Each one comes with its own name and backstory, so you can get to know your plushy friend right away.

It’s the toys’ sprawling catalogue of must-know personalities that have helped launch them to collector’s item status, with Squishmallows now even laying out a rarity scale. People on TikTok regularly go on “Squish Hunts” at their local retailers, scouring shelves and picking up gems or whoever they can find.

To help inform your next hunt – for already indoctrinated Squishmallows fans, and ’mallow-curious readers alike – we reached out to Jazwares, the parent company of Squishmallows, to ask about the most popular food-themed plushies on the market. Here are 10 adorable friends, including a brand-new character, you’re about to fall in love with.
