Since most our memories about s’mores involve cheap chocolate, burned marshmallows and graham cracker-covered faces, let’s admit that the s’mores tradition is simply bizarre without nostalgia.
Doubtful? Here are ten s’mores that show just how eccentric this American pastime has become:
1. S’mores Soap
Oh yes they did.
2. Commercialized S’mores
S’mores cereal, milkshakes, crackers, energy bars, pudding cups, granola bars, ice cream…This list is ridiculous.
3. S’mores Accessories
The rabbit hole is deeper than we thought, my friends.
4. Homemade Baked Stuff with S’mores Names
Similar to Commercialized S’mores, except with a temporary sense of wisdom and achievement.
5. Expatriate S’mores
With festive non-American marshmallows.
6. S’mores with Peanut Butter
And other innovative additions like sprinkles (always sprinkles).
7. Candle S’mores
They taste like wax and make everyone think about cancer. It’s a simple way to reveal, reconsider and reorder your life priorities.
8. Gluten-Free S’mores
For our poor celiac compadres.
9. Gourmet S’mores
Salted chocolate, graham cracker pudding, toasted marshmallow ice cream… Are these ingredients even at the grocery store?
10. Sometimes, the original recipe is still the best idea.
(Even a Girl Scouts recipe.)
