Toasted Marshmallow Day is the 30th of August.
Marshmallows are traditionally toasted around a campfire, but you don’t have to go camping to celebrate today.
Perhaps you or a neighbour have a barbeque that you can toast a marshmallow over.
You can also toast a marshmallow indoors on a gas stove, or even over an electric burner.
If all else fails, you could use a kitchen blow torch.
If you are celebrating with children, today is also a good occasion to reinforce fire safety with them.
Perhaps the real good news about today is that no one is saying you have to have made your marshmallows from scratch!
Some say Toasted Marshmallow Day is the 14th of August, but the National Confectioner’s Association of America plumps for today. But don’t get today mixed up with S’Mores Day — that was 20 days ago, on the 10th of August.
If you’re in the northern hemisphere, remember that there are very few days of summer left — so have a taste of summer evenings today with a toasted marshmallow!
The earliest print mention we’ve been able to find of Toasted Marshmallow Day occurred in August 2003.
