It’s the first official day of summer, and nothing says summer like s’mores! I still remember my first taste of a s’more… what’s not to love about that ooey, gooey, sweet combination of melted chocolate, creamy marshmallow and crunchy graham cracker – yum!
A Gooey History
Did you know that the s’more – more formally known as “some mores” – first appeared as a recipe in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, published in 1927? Other s’more enthusiasts would argue that the marshmallow treat has its roots in the Victorian Era when popular picks for desserts were “sandwich cookies” and sponge cakes, variously filled with jam, cream, or lemon curd.
Yet another s’more theory has the delectable treats as a DIY version of the Mallomar—a graham cracker cookie topped with a blob of marshmallow and coated with chocolate, manufactured by Nabisco and first sold in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1913; or the MoonPie—a pair of graham cracker cookies with a marshmallow filling, dipped in chocolate – that first went on the market in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 1917.
