The idea of the fruit and marshmallows on the kabobs was fun. The kids liked it, but unfortunately I didn't care for the raspberry dipping sauce and the marshmellows cooked (and melted) way too fast so some of the fruit was still not grilled up. My BBQ is old school, so when it's on, it's on and I can't adjust for different heat settings. It might be fun to try over a campfire as a smores alternative.
