"Burnt marshmallow smell" from heater-heater core?

My wife just texted me that the heat in the Borrego smells like "burnt marshmellows." Since that to me sounds somewhat sweet/sugary, I'm now worried about heater core issues. Has anyone had one fail? I will admit that I have new coolant sitting on the shelf in the garage that I have not yet gotten around to putting in (Coolant change interval is 60K and we're approaching 80K)...

Have you ever replaced your cabin filter?

Aha! Good catch. This is our first "new" (we bought CPO in 2012) car so I've never had one with one of them newfangled cabin filters I'll replace it this weekend and see if that helps.
