There are a couple scenarios that could be going on here. This could be your first time ever roasting a marshmallow. You might be incredibly impatient. You are most likely a very young child.

You’re patient and sentimental— you know how to roast and melt a marshmallow, but you’re nostalgic for that burnt sugary taste. You also like your toast a little burned.

A spectrum of roasted marshmallows sit on a cutting board, arranged in a circle. This shows the variety of options people like when they make s'mores.

You might be patient, but you can get a little distracted. Or, perhaps, you’re unsure, never knowing when to stop roasting. Either way, you often find yourself running to the picnic table for graham crackers and chocolate before your marshmallow falls to its demise.

Several marshmallows lined up, raw to roasted, to show the variety of ways to roast your marshmallow on the campfire.

Barely Golden and Inside Raw

You’re an over-thinker and slightly self-conscious. You fear burning your marshmallow and looking like an amateur. So you play it safe, and it’s gotten you far in life. Why stop now?
