August 30 is National Toasted Marshmallow Day!
Saturday, August 30th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,

Pyros rejoice - August 30 is National Toasted Marshmallow Day!

Build a good old-fashioned campfire in the backyard or gather around an open flame with some skewers and a bag of 'mallows!

Today isn't just for celebrating the soft, chewy and mind-boggling treat that is the marshmallow, but indeed one of the best ways to eat it. If you're the mallow kind, there's nothing better than a golden, toasted marshmallow still warm from the fire. Slightly crispy on the outside and absolutely gooey on the inside, it's a little bit of heaven.

Eat it straight from the stick or slide it on a hunk of chocolate between two graham crackers. You can also indulge in a toasted marshmallow milkshake if you're feeling frisky.

And an even deeper query for the marshmallow connoisseur, do you just barely let it toast or char that sucker until it's black? However you toast, we salute you with our skewers and you're welcome to join the campfire anytime.

August 31 is National Trail Mix Day
Sunday, August 31st
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,

You can take this snack on the run, baby - August 31 is National Trail Mix Day.

Even if you're not setting off on a grand adventure today, trail mix is still a great snack to munch on wherever you go - but it gets even better if you're plunging into a hike.
 
This lightweight snack is packed with powerful carbohydrates and energy, depending on your blend. Grab some granola, dried fruit, nuts and chocolate bits, shake it up and snack it down.

Trail mix has been around a while, but the first literary mention is in Jack Kerouac's "The Dharma Bums," published in 1958. The snack previously flew under the radar and under different names.  The name for trail mix in Germany, Denmark, Poland and Lithuania roughly translates to "student feed."

After all, when Ramen noodles won't do, grab a handful of "student feed" to see you through.
