Happy National S'Mores Day!

Taking a break from our travel blog posts, I wanted to make sure that you know what today is while there's still time to pick up some marshmallows, Hershey's Chocolate Bars, and Graham Crackers!

S'more appears to be a contraction of the phrase, "some more." While the origin of the dessert is unclear, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the 1927 publication Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. The recipe is credited to Loretta Scott Crew, who reportedly made them by the campfire for the Scouts. It is unknown whether the Girl Scouts were the first to make s'mores, but there appears to be no earlier claim to this snack. ~~Wikipedia

On Aug. 10th everyone’s favorite summertime campfire treat is celebrated. While the holiday is not official (which an act of Congress requires) it has been celebrated for years. So celebrate today by toasting a marshmallow, placing it on top of a piece of Hershey's chocolate bar and sandwiching it between two graham cracker squares. Don’t have a campfire on hand? Assemble the s’more, pop it in the microwave for about 5 to 10 seconds, and enjoy!

Hey Shelby, these would make great sleepover party snacks too!
