    I'm looking to buy some marshmallow sticks... can anyone recommend good durable ones? I've seen some on Amazon, but they seem flimsy or too short or telescopic (which I think my have a problem down the road). I don't have a problem storing sticks that are 50 inches long... as long as they are very durable and safe.
    Please tell me where I can buy some and how much I'm looking at.

    We have no problem with the extenable ones...we've had ours for a few years already and they still move up and down.

    Ours are usually found at our campsite. They are found laying on the ground under the trees. They come in various sizes and work for hot dogs too. [:D]

    We have both kinds...the space-saving telescoping for the camper, big ol' long heavy ones for the fire pit at home.

    Our local department store (Canadian). I think they were made by Coleman or Coghlans, they were only $3 each.

    X2 Hawkes. I really like the ones from Wallmart, I picked mine up at the end of the year last year, and they were very inexpensive for what they are.

    We use the telescoping ones from Walmart. They work pretty well, and are priced great. They are about 3 years old and one of them did pull apart now. I guess for the price, though I can't complain.

    We were at a PopUp Times rally years ago in Townsend Tn. when we heard ambulance sirens at a neighboring campground. It seems that two children were playing around with the telescoping sticks and the end flew off of one of them and ended up stabbing a sister and killing her. Since then I am a little leary of the telescoping ones. A friend of mine has a hickory tree in her yard and has made her own with green wood. She carries these with her when she goes camping and soaks them in water.

    We buy wooden ones from the "Christmas Tree Shop". A package of about 12 costs a whole $1.00!!! And when your done with them just toss them into the fire!

    I'm sorry, but I have a hard time believing this. I would say the chances of a child choking to death on a marshmallow would far outweigh the chance of one being killed by any possible roasting stick stabbing.

    We have used the telescoping type since my now 17 year old daughter was able to hold one at about age 4. None of the original roasters have broken, and no one has been injured by one.

    I certainly wasnt saying that all of them would do this but if it happened once, thats enough for me.

    I try to do my camping in the company of trees. The provide shade and sticks. I don't have to pack them or clean them. Easy peasy, and no casualties of any children.

    I would think you would have to soak the sticks prior to adding the marshmallows. I need to get some to get ready for the fall camping trips.

    Nope, don't need to soak them first! They provide a whole night of roasting! I never thought of soaking them first, but then again I've never soaked any wooded roasting stick before.
