Gathering Around the Campfire Has Never Been More Fun

New Roasting Tools Bring Fun and Excitement to Your Next Campout or Backyard Gathering

PEORIA, Ill. – Summertime is almost here, which means people from coast-to-coast will soon be gathering around the campfire or backyard fire pit with family and friends. If you're looking for some fun and inexpensive ways to enhance the campfire experience, Rome Industries is offering some great new tools for roasting marshmallows, hot dogs and other tasty treats.

“Today, more than ever, families and friends are connecting around the campfire or backyard firepit,” said Michael O'Russa, director of sales and marketing for Rome Industries. “We've developed a variety of roasting tools that will add a new layer of excitement to your next outdoor gathering.”

No backyard cookout is complete without hot dogs and marshmallows. Rome's colorful Picnic Fork (MSRP: $2.00) is the perfect tool for kids to cook their own hot dogs and s'mores. The Picnic Fork is made out of chrome-plated steel, which makes for easy clean up. The fork is available in one of four bright colors and features an easy-grip, solid-wood handle. Each fork is 22-inches in length, which keeps kids a safe distance from the fire.

The Marshmallow Tree (MSRP: $9.95) is another fun accessory for backyard cooking. It's made out of coated steel wire that is bent and welded and shaped like an actual tree branch. The tree can cook up to 10 marshmallows at one time making for extremely fast roasting for the whole crew. It features a rosewood- stained, tapered-wood handle with a leather strap for hanging. The marshmallow tree is a great way for mom and dad to quickly roast marshmallows over the campfire.

Rome's Marshmallow Roasting Set is designed to look like a “blast from the past.” The tapered wood handles, which come in six different colors, have a 1950s look to them, instantly reminding mom and dad of nights around the campfire when they were kids. The set contains six stainless steel forks, allowing the whole family to gather around the fire. Each fork is 23-inches in length and perfect for toasting marshmallows or hot dogs. (MSRP: $29.95)

Nothing quite says outdoor summer fun like making your own s'more over the fire. Making the perfect s'more couldn't be easier with Rome's S'more Maker (MSRP: $8.50). The S'more Maker is made from chrome-plated steel and is 29-inches long, which keeps everyone a safe distance from the flames. It makes up to three s'mores at once. Simply place a s'more sandwich into one of the three cooking cavities and hold above the flames until the graham cracker is lightly toasted, the marshmallow begins to soften and the chocolate melts. The perfect s'more made fast, easy and mess-free.
