Summer is here and that means summer vacation! If you’ve never had the opportunity to take a road trip with friends, I high recommend it!
There are many different ways to go a road trip. Some like to take the movie-esque approach and throw a dart at a map and drive; Some like to have a general idea of where they are going and just stop at the “cool” sites along the way, but I like to plan. I am generally not a planner at all, but when it comes to vacations, I want to see as much as possible in the time allotted, and planning really helps with that.
Here at Rolla Roaster, we are marshmallow enthusiasts. No, fanatics. We just really, really, really dig marshmallows. And what’s not to dig? They’re sweet, melty, gooey, and pair perfectly with chocolate. And when you smoosh it all between a graham cracker? It’s gooey, chocolatey, and crunchy. You can’t get much better than that.
There’s something about having the family around the campfire, toasting food, and enjoying life. One way to bring everyone together that is fun for all ages is to play family-friendly games.
The Rolla Roaster favorite…
Marshmallow Maverick– See who can toast their marshmallow and peel off the outer, crispy layer the most times.
20 Questions– One person thinks of an object and the others have 20 questions to guess what it is. A fun, outdoors variation is to think of things from nature or interesting things you encountered on your adventures that day.
Name the Song– Have someone whistle or sing the first few lines of a song and the person in the hot seat gets to guess it.
Chubby Bunny– Participants put marshmallows in their mouths and say “chubby bunny”, putting more marshmallows in and repeating the phrase until you can no longer understand them. The winner is the person who can say “chubby bunny” and be understood with the most marshmallows in their mouth.
Two Truths and a Lie– Each person says three things and everyone tries to guess which are the two truths and which is the lie. It’s a great way to get to know new people!

Grilling foodon a Rolla Roaster is one of the easiest, most fun ways of cooking on a campfire. All you have to do is pierce your food on the end of the toasting fork and stick it over the fire. The Rolla Roaster is especially great for toasting food because the double-pronged fork keeps the food securely on the end. The rotisserie turning knob allows you to leisurely turn your food so that it ends up perfectly toasted. And unlike using an iron grill or wrapping the food in tin foil and putting it on the coals cooking with the Rolla Roaster allows you to easily control where in the fire your food is being cooked and adjust it throughout the cooking process for the perfectly finished campfire dinner. Having a safe and easy way for everyone to participate in the cooking process will allow for a relaxing experience and give the cook of the family a break. Clean-up is extremely easy which means that all the prep and cleaning time you saved can be used to share stories and laughs with family and friends. Cooking with a Rolla Roaster will make your cookouts a more enjoyable experience for everyone!
Here are some of the best things to toast with your Rolla Roaster on campfire:
Cooking bread on your Rolla Roaster is simple. Mix together some bread dough- any kind will work: naan, store-bought dough, or Bisquick- and twist the dough around the tongs. Chilled dough is ideal and make sure that the dough is thick enough to stay on the tongs. Toaster waffles are also easy to toast on the end of the Rolla Roaster for a super easy campfire breakfast.
There’s nothing quite like cooking your own meat over a fire. Pierce your steak, fish, hot dogs, wild game, or whatever else you’re cooking on the end of the Rolla Roaster, then sit back and relax while you’re toasting your dinner. The rotisserie knob set in the Rolla Roaster’s handle allows you to easily cook your meat to perfection.
This dinner staple of teenagers everywhere turns out to be pretty tasty campfire food. Suggestion: pierce the smaller, thicker end of the pizza pocket instead of the juicy center.
Spear those vegetables on a tasty Rolla Roaster kabob or cook them separately to round out your outdoor meal. The less dense veggies, such as peppers or corn, are better to toast as opposed to the more dense veggies (which typically do better when cooked directly on the coals). Mushrooms are also a quick-cooking, tasty campfire food.
You can toast any hard fleshed fruit (banana, pineapple, peaches, dates…) on the fire for an easy dessert. The heat brings out the sweet flavor of the fruit as the sugars caramelize, yummy.
Toast your marshmallow to perfection on a Rolla Roaster then sandwich it between two graham crackers and chocolate for a tasty s’more.
