This Is National S'mores Day! 

Scott Olson

Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious!

S'mores date back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be chocolatey delicious.  Before long, S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"

Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
