USGS Says Roasting Marshmallows Over Volcanoes is NOT OK


This Tweet has gotten a lot of attention online. 

After weeks of scientific updates on the volcano, the U.S. Geological Survey responded to a question on Twitter about whether it would be safe to roast marshmallows over volcanic vents.

"We're going to have to say no, that's not safe." 

The vent could be belching stuff like sulfur dioxide or hydrogen sulfide. Those gases generally smell like rotten eggs and that's why it would make your nicely roasted marshmallow taste horrible.

Not to mention the sugar reaction. Seriously kids, YouTube it. It's pretty cool to watch.
