I don’t know about you, but growing up I used long twigs to roast my marshmallows while I was on my camping trips. However as a father of two I am not that fond of letting my boys eat off something they found off the ground. That’s where Rome Roasting tools coming into play.
Their colorful marshmallow forks worked out really well for my family on our camping trips so far this season. Made out of chrome-plated steal, I was pleased with their sturdiness and the general ease of cleanup, while my boys enjoyed choosing from the variety of colors. I did think each fork could be a bit longer. At 22 inches, my 4 year old would get a bit too close to the campfire for my liking. These retail at $2.00 each and overall are worth the small investment.
One really fun tool I tested out was the marshmallow roasting tree. This fun creation allows you to roast up to 10 marshmallows at once. Holy s’mores! Not only is this tool fun to use, but it is a major time saver if you need to roast for several people. The only issue I had with this tool was that it was too long to fit in my storage bins which isn’t very helpful when you’re trying to save space while camping. That same length made it definitely safe for little ones to use which generates many photo opportunities.
In summary, I highly suggest picking these up for your next camping trip. They’re affordable, easy-to-clean and sturdy but most importantly make roasting marshmallows more fun.
