The The Bakers Dozen: I need to make marshmellows

I need to make marshmallows, I understand that the higher the bloom, the higher the quality. Does this really matter in the case of the marshmallow. I don't have a "taste" for the things, so any help would be appreciated.

I have a bit more time now to elaborate. I need marshmallows. The basic knowledge I have of gelatin is that it odorless and tasteless. So is the "quality" all about texture? Will a lower bloom, breakdown and get gooier faster. I will putting the mashmallows in a smore and wonder if any of this will affect the cracker base. Will a lower bloom mean a moister marshmallow? It's too costly in bulk to simply buy both and experiment, sure it's a lowly food, but i'm serious about it, so any help? Please!?!?

This is one of the most comprehensive discussions I've seen on DIY marshmallows. There are a few other threads relating to marshmallows in that forum, but this is the grandaddy.
