I don't eat marshmallows. It's very rare that I do...

How not fun and boring is that???

Marshmallows use to be impossible to find here.

Sorry, Tulip --- I'm not a fan of marshmallows, in any form or fashion. Don't like teh flavor, the texture, the stickiness... Kind of outgrew them when I stopped doing campfires!

ROFL! I think this is amusing because it's pretty timely for us. I was just complaining about how DH hates it when others roast their marshmallows "wrong." I told him last weekend to just go in the house if it bothers him that much. We have bonfires almost each weekend with the neighbors, and we always make s'mores. Me? I don't care for marshmallows, but they're good in s'mores. And I don't care how others roast them.

I love some makes of marshmallow but but not others. I like the ones that are soft inside but everso slightly crisp on the outside. I don't like the new style soft ones which are multi coloured or twisted. We also have to be careful as most seem to be made from pork gelatine. The ones with arabic writing on the bags I'm assuming are halal and I've seen some others with beef gelatine. I just like them straight out of the bag but they have too much sugar for me these days so I rarely buy them. DD loves them too.

I had to learn what 'smores were from the boards - we don't make them here. We used to put a marshmallow on a stick and poke it in the fire when I was a Girl Guide and I liked that. I toasted one that way (on the gas cooker!) for DH but he hated it - and I can't say I really liked it 40 years after Girl Guides.

I also like them on top of hot chocolate.

Hi Jen!

Yes, it is almost marshmallow season isn't it?
