You Be the Judge:  Which Marshmallow is “Perfectly Roasted?”

Ok, so my family went camping in the Colorado Rocky Mountains — and had an epic marshmallow-roasting-contest.  My kids thought they roasted the perfect marshmallow.  But I thought I had it nailed.  “Dad!  Put photos on your speaker blog!”   So here they are.

Will you help us judge the contest?  Who do YOU think won?

    I’m going with #1 – just the right amount of toasting. #2 and #3 have too little toasting. #4 has too much.

    Absolutely #1. The brown is distinct yet subtle. I think burning a marshmallow is an unfortunate consequence of not taking enough care to keep it away from the flame. Not browning it means that the marshmallow is not yet cooked. Would you eat a turkey that was not browned? Would you eat a turkey that was all charred and black? I think not!

    They are all noble efforts. Personally, any roasted marshmallow is better than the original “poofy,” soft, powdery product. Roasting is the only way to go–high fives to all your family for a fun outing.

    My vote is for number 3! Why? Because it’s perfect and the way I love to eat mine. Numbers two and four are just starting out. Number one is nearly there; it’s got nice browning taking place, but I doubt it had the nice crisp outer crunch all the way around.

    Some may say it’s burnt. It’s not! Think of a roasted red pepper. In order to have the yummy roasted flavor, you have to literally burn the skin black all around. That’s removed and you’re left with a wonderful roasted pepper.

    I roast my marshmallows just like number three. Think I quickly and gently flick the black with my finger. It flies off and I’m left with a crispy, wonderfully toasted marshmallow, with a soft, gooey center!

    Number three is perfect in my humble opinion!

    Definitely #3. While #1 is indeed impressive, it is about to fall off the stick, which detracts at least 15 points. Plus I like my marshmallows like I like my turkey….charred and black….sorry Beth :-)

    While number one is beautiful, number three is my personal favorite, and one that I believe kids delight in … So my vote goes to #3 !!!

    I think that it is a trick, marshmallow #1 & #4 could be the same marshmallow just different sides. Also #2 & #3 could be the same marshmallow but after the first layer of mallow or is it marxh has been removed.

    My pick from just the photos is for #1
