Jolly Green Products Marshmallow Roasting Sticks
If you’re looking for a bit more adult oriented marshmallow roasting sticks, Jolly Green Products has got you covered. With a retro green design, 34” telescopic length and heat resistant wooden handles these are perfect for a dinner party under the stairs.

During our testing we found the telescopic sticks to be extremely sturdy and even at full extension hardly sagged at all. The fully rotating handle made getting a perfect golden marshmallow just that much easier and was great for when you’re trying to hold a wine glass and roast at the same time.

Cosbity Marshmallow Roasting Sticks
Last up on our list, but certainly not least are the Cosbity Marshmallow Roasting Sticks. Boasting an incredible 45 inches of telescopic length these are by far the longest sticks on our list. The extended length is perfect for children who have trouble getting shorter sticks into the first or who may be a bit unsteady on their feet. With super bright colors and safety silicone coated tips these are great for the outdoors and provide a wonderfully safe option for roasting s’mores, BBQ or sausages. Due to the sheer size of the telescopic arm they lack the rotating handle feature however that is a trade off we are more than willing to make. Collapsing down to 10” in the small included carry pouch they are perfect to throw in a car or RV for a last minute trip or to use over a luxurious fire pit table in your own backyard. Either way these are a great buy and have the durability to last for many seasons to come. Read more reviews
