Ancient Egyptians were probably the first people to enjoy the treats we know today as marshmallows. As early as 2000 BCE, Egyptians were squeezing sap from the mallow plant and mixing it with nuts and honey to create a dessert so rare and delicious, it was reserved for royalty. We have no way of knowing what these early marshmallows looked like -- the pillowy shapes with which we are familiar today didn’t originate until the 19th century, when confectioners in France learned how to create a more stable version involving gelatin.
Today, the U.S. is considered the most dedicated devotee of the fluffy stuff -- according to marshmallow experts, Americans buy more than 90 million pounds of this gooey treat annually! Roasting ‘mallows over a campfire to create s’mores (or munch on alone after it has stopped smoldering!) has become a classic North American tradition.
For a ginormous twist on this all-American pastime, try some of these Giant Roasters on for size! Each marshmallow weighs an entire ounce. That’s the sort of stuff legends are made of! Poke one of these on a stick and just see how well the fire can cope. It’s BIG fun!
Bag includes 20 ounces of Campfire Giant Roasters Marshmallows... that's about 20 pieces.
