Debate: New York-based Twitter user Yashar Ali shared an image of a guide that showed the different levels a marshmallow can be toasted, and a now viral debate has broken out
Opinions: Since the tweet was shared on Sunday, July 7, over 3,000 Twitter users have given their opinions on what they believe the perfect toasted marshmallow should look like
The New York-based Twitter user shared the image alongside a caption that read: ‘Five or six are correct.’
On the scale in the image, marshmallows ascended in order from least to most toasted, and were numbered from one to ten.
The marshmallow labelled ‘one’ appeared to not have been toasted, while the tenth sweet on the scale was more or less burned.
Over 3,000 users have commented on the now viral tweet, revealing what they regard as the perfect level of burned.
‘It’s eight or nothing. Five or six? Are you serious?’ one Twitter user said.
Another said that ‘eight is the only acceptable answer’, while a different user wrote: ‘I’d go up to 7. That one looks nice n gooey on the inside.’
‘Really anything from four to seven is acceptable. But five is ideal,’ one man said.
Meanwhile, a mother-of-two wrote: ‘As an ex-Girl Scout and mom who spends every summer at Boy Scout camp with my two sons: You need a 7 or 8 on that marshmallow char scale to achieve the internal molten gooey-ness to make a proper S’more…’
Similarly another user, who said she was once a Girl Scout, said: ‘Eight is perfect. Most needs to be toasted with a slight burned area. I was a Girl Scout.’
Viral: While some users agreed that the perfectly toasted marshmallow was represented in the chart, other said the guide didn’t represent the ideal marshmallow
Some others shared stronger opinions on the topic of toasting marshmallows, as one woman said: ‘Anyone who chooses one-six must have some real issues in their lives……or they could be diagnosed with ADHD.’
‘Always disturbed me, the people who set their marshmallows on fire. Like damn, be patient,’ another said.
Meanwhile, one user shared a small ‘guide’ of their own, as he jokingly detailed what he believes is the meaning behind each marshmallow.
‘One-two is a waste of a stick. Three-four is what you give the kids who really want one but are doing what their told.
‘Five-six is good seven-eight is being thankful it didn’t turn into… nine-ten is a waste of a stick, do not eat that trash,’ he added.
Another said: ‘Dude, no. If you can still see white, it ain’t right.
‘You should have to blow it out after admiring its torch-like qualities. You gotta hear that shishing [sic] sizzle.’
Other users were in total disagreement with the chart. One said: ‘There’s a massive spectrum between seven-nine that is not fully explored in this image.’
Another jokingly said: ‘Which number is the one where your marshmallow catches on fire, then you wave the stick back and forth to put it out, and the flaming treat slips off, flies through the night air, and sticks to your friend’s leg, causing third degree burns?’
‘The only correct answer is zero. Graham cracker and chocolate, and NO marshmallow!’ one woman said.
