First snow is upon us and we're still making pies

November may be the time of year when most of us cover up the grill and start settling in for winter, but don't put away those Pie Irons quite yet. Over the past few years, we've been hearing from more and more customers who use our products year round. Be it a nippy winter gathering around the firepit or even in the fireplace, this is the time when Rome dealers should think outside the campground.

We should also not forget the potential for holiday gift giving. Rome's nostalgic & well crafted products are perfect for those looking for a unique gift that is not seen in every big box retailer.

Marshmallow roasting in the news

Garden Design magazine has a nice feature on Rome's Marshmallow Tree in the December issue titled, "Garden Gourmet." The quote, "When was the last time you had this much fun for $9.99" highlights the smiles to dollar ratio of Rome's roasting forks.

On the subject of the Marshmallow Tree, the LA Times Food section recently had this to say about it.

The Marshmallow Tree from Rome Industries looks like a work of wall art, a slender tree limb with 10 twigs on which you spear marshmallows. This tool requires adult supervision, because in the wrong little hands, this could become a weapon of mass destruction. That said, it's a delightfully goofy and effective way to perfectly roast a bunch of marshmallows at once.
