Good idea, bad execution.
Marshmallow – Good.
Chocolate – VERY Good.
Graham Cracker – Eh.
The traditional location to eat S’mores is camping.
Are you f’ing kidding me?
Why would you want to try to devour something ooey-gooey-chocolately delicious when you have a residue of dirt and mosquito repellent on your hands? And after you eat the S’more, you have a thick, sticky residue of marshmallow on your hands. Hand sanitizer or a cup of water isn’t going to rinse that sh*t off. I feel like camping foods should be easily clean-up-able. Hmmm. Maybe this is why my mother has never been a camper. (She likes things clean. To the point of rubbing my son’s butt off after a poopy diaper change. OY.)
I don’t even think I had ever consumed a S’more until Nabisco came out with pre-made, microwavable S’mores in the 1990’s, called Suddenly S’mores. If you are trying to jog your memory, they came in a red package.
They were great!
No campfire required! (Just a microwave.)
No assembly required!
You can make them anytime!
They were the perfect proportion of chocolate to marshmallow to sweetened cookie graham cracker. Except for the occasional marshmallow burn on my finger, they were great! Except they came in inner packs of 2, and you had to make 4 at a time to really get all the yummy deliciousness that you craved.
A great after-school snack.
Saturday morning breakfast.
If they still made them and stocked them in a store near me, I would still be buying them today.
But, alas, the closest thing I can find nowadays is the S’mores bar from Cabelas. It has a chocolate covered marshmallow sandwiched between the graham cracker. You have to be careful when you microwave it because if you leave it in too long the marshmallow will get huge and the top will slide off the bottom. They are kind of expensive. And have to be purchased at a Cabela’s store.
Another alternative, if you have a gas stove, is to toast the marshmallows that way.
But I still miss the microwave variety :(
Does anyone else remember these?
Watch the commercial I found on YouTube.
