Try One (or More) of These S’mores Upgrades This Summer
Just because something only has three main ingredients, don't let anyone tell you that you can't make it your own.
Case in point, S'mores, first created by the Girls Scouts in 1927, with melted marshmallow and a piece of chocolate wedged in between two graham crackers.
There's not much you can do to personalize that, right?
For me, a bona fide chocoholic, I don't just stop at a small piece of Hershey bar (my preference) on one side of my marshmallow, I use the ENTIRE bar to form a layer of chocolate goodness on BOTH sides of my backyard BBQ creation.
Nothing revolutionary I know, but there is a company out there that takes upgraded S'mores very seriously.
The Portland, Oregon-based 1927 S’mores Company is going totally 'off book' with some of their suggestions on how to take this iconic snack to a whole new level.
In a Thrillist story, they outline a few of the 'add-ons' that will transform S'mores forever:
- Adding fresh strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and orange for a fresh produce kick.
- Going in a more sweet and salty direction with the addition of crushed potato chips, saltine crackers, or pretzels, coupled with sliced banana, toasted coconut shreds, or chopped peanuts.
- Make your S'mores more seasonal with pumpkin pie filling in the fall and cocoa mint in the winter.
What twist do you put on your S'mores?
