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.

Pyros rejoice - August 30 is National Toasted Marshmallow Day!
