Albertsons in my area have marshmallow sticks for roasting over a camp fire. They are food safe 1/4" wooden dowels that are 30 INCHES!!!!! long. and are only $2.99 for a 6pk. I was so excited when i saw them. So much better then buying regular wooden dowels that may not be food safe, or buying the W ones which are about the same price for 12". They hang at the end of the aisles.
THANKS for the tip
