The NMRI informs and educates all
roasters to become the best roasters in your communities. We explore how

Who we are
We are every person who has savored the perfectly roasted marshmallow.
Sometimes, nothing else will satisfy. The art and science behind the perfectly
roasted marshmallow is glorious to behold. Done correctly, roasted mallows are
as the nectar of the gods. Done incorrectly and your tent may burn down.
We at the National Marshmallow Roasters Institute
are here to make your roasting events glorious experiences that you will
treasure for the rest of your lives. Children will bow down to you. Women will
throw themselves into mens' tents. Men will carry women clear across the
campground to the bathrooms with the only showers, next to the campground store
where you can purchase all that damn stuff you forgot, but...I digress.... All
of these glorious benefits await you because you've roasted the perfect
Where it all began
Visit Mallow, North Cork, Ireland where
the ancient occupation of "burner of the mallow" (roaster) began. According to
Susan G. Warner,
Mallow Historian and Esteemed Adjunct
Professor Emeritus of Mallow Lore at the NMR Institute, "The mallow was first
burned, as it were, in 944 CE (current era)." Further, she states, "It was the
roasting of the mallow that led to the peace between the Angles and the Saxons,
and established the first common language of the two tribes - Old Irish. Though
unspoken today, a few words of that language still survive in modern Irish and
English. 'Mallow' is one of those Old Irish words."
These are the good old days!

Marsha Mallow answers:
Paula from Spokane asks: "Are marshmallows
good for you?"
Nutritionally, one could live on marshmallows very well. They contain food from
the four food groups. Gelatin coming from the boiled bone and tendons of
slaughtered steers, fed only organically grown alfalfa. Powdered sugar from
sugar cane, NOT high-fructose corn syrup. A touch of vegetable shortening from
sun-ripened sunflowers. And just a touch of sweet cream from beautiful dairy
cows from our country's heartland. What could be a more perfect food?
