S’mores can be ooey. Oftentimes they’re gooey. But one thing is for certain – it’s well worth the delicious mess. S’mores are more than just an after-dinner treat – they’re a rite of passage. For generations, s’mores have brought young and old together while swapping stories and making memories around campfires across the nation. When you combine graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate, you create one savory taste of summer.
