Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on S’mores (aka smores)

Enjoy 'em camping out

This treat can inspire thoughts of sitting ‘round campfires and summer vacation. A S’more consists of a toasted marshmallow and chocolate, which are pressed between graham crackers.  S’mores aka smores gained popularity in the early 1900s.  The inventions of puffed marshmallows and the generic chocolate bar were the precursors of this sweet graham cracker sandwich.  “S’more” is short for “Some more for me.”  The Girl Scouts even featured a recipe in their 1927 Handbook.  National S’mores Day is celebrated every 10th of August in the U.S.A.
