National S'mores Day

It’s National S’mores Day! These delicious treats are made from three simple ingredients—graham crackers, toasted marshmallows, and chocolate bars.

S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!" You’ll always want some more of this decadent sweet!

 The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be choclatey delicious.  The first official s'more recipe was published in 1927 in a book created by the Girl Scouts.  S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone.

S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!

National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately placed in August...campfire prime time. But, don't limit your consumption of S'mores to the campfire.  They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven or microwave.

Today, grab a few friends, make a campfire, and have some s’mores. No bonfire? No problem! You can toast marshmallows over a candle flame, in an oven or a microwave. It will definitely leave you wanting...s'more!
