Fun Free Font JI Marshmallow Roast Brings Back Childhood Memories

TrueType font JI Marshmallow Roast makes my mouth water. Designer Jeri Ingalls has cleverly and artfully integrated sans serif glyphs into marshmallows.

TrueType font JI Marshmallow Roast puts your letters on marshmallows and the marshmallows on sticks.
However, the sweet treat widely spaces your text, so this isn't for long sentences. And though JI Marshmallow Roast is designed as a display face, at smaller than 48 points the marshmallows can interfere with the text making it hard to read. Even so, at poster size JI Marshmallow Roast cooks up a gooey treat that's hard to resist. There's no punctuation (which makes it difficult to write s'mores), so choose your headline well; and there's no empty marshmallow, either, since the space bar adds an additional part of a stick. The sticks are brilliantly executed, however--use the parentheses and square brackets to add stick ends in either direction. Whether you prefer your marshmallows blackened or lightly toasted, JI Marshmallow Roast is a fun way to advertise your campfire s'mores night.

JI Marshmallow Roast is free for personal use; for commercial use contact Jeri Ingalls.

Note: To use this font, unzip the folder and install the .ttf file in the folder C:\Windows\Fonts. Note that the font won't appear in your applications until you close and re-open it. For more guidance see How to Install and Uninstall Fonts in Windows.
