OH my god. I'm crying here. Those poor kids.

The one who got the two at the end had me laughing so hard.

That is too cute!

The one that ate around the edges then put it back on her plate cracked me up-like they might not notice.

I loved the little guy who kept resting his nose on the marshmallow! So adorable!

I love the ones who pick just a teeny piece off. And that little girl who didn't even wait for the woman to finish speaking before eating the marshmallow!

The little boy at the end who put two marshmallows in his mouth was my favorite. He tried so hard to resist, I was proud of him when he finally got to eat them, lol.

That did make me smile. Thanks!

This is based on a very famous (at least in the crowd I run with) study on delayed gratification done years ago -- they recently followed up on some of the kids who participated and found some interesting differences between the kids who could delay gratification and those who didn't/couldn't.

Bwahaha! Cute!

The redhead started eating before the lady even finished talking! She was like, "I'm eating it! Forget y'all!"

Yah, who knew that the choices you make about marshmallows when you are five can predict all that stuff about you when you're older.

Makes me wonder what I would have done!

Absolutely adorable!- especially the little girl who didn't even wait for the lady to leave the room- no restraint whatsoever!

The little boy who resisted was so damn precious! You could tell he was trying so hard. He should have been given 3 marshmallows for that.

That kid at the end who got two was hilarious! Poor kids! It must have been pure torture!
I wouldn't have eaten any. I don't like marshmallows.

Could anyone else almost smell the marshmallows while watching that? And when some of them put their finger on them and then licked their finger-I could almost feel that powerdery feel of the outside of a marshmallow. Odd I know.

I've always been a rules-follower when it comes to stuff like that. I would have waited 'til the lady came back. I STILL follow the rules. And I'm ok with that.
