Best S’mores Ever
Aug 12, 2016
There’s something about s’mores that just screams summer and if you haven’t had one yet, it’s time! We’ve brought you tons of details on how to make the best s’mores ever! (#yourewelcome) And because we have an adventurous spirit, be sure to stop by the store when it’s open. We’re going to have a s’more day for sure! In fact, it’s August 10th and this year the Girl Scouts released a very special cookie!
First, some fun S’more facts from Wikipedia: S’more is a contraction of the phrase “some more”. Although the exact origin of the treat is unclear, reports about scouts from as early as 1925 describe them. One early published recipe for a s’more is found in a book of recipes published by the Campfire Marshmallows company in the 1920s  where it was called a “Graham Cracker Sandwich.” The text indicates that the treat was already popular with both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. In 1927, a recipe for “Some More” was published in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.
We definitely like the name S’more better than Graham Cracker Sandwich and we are secretly thinking of trying to break the world record of making S’mores at the same time which is apparently holding at 423.
