The History of S'mores
This delicious campfire treat has a fogy past, it's exact origins are unknown.
The recipe was first printed in a 1927 Guide Book called, "Tamping & Trailing with the Girl Scouts". It's attributed to the Campfire Girls. The printed recipe named the dessert "Some More", playing on the idea that once you've had one you will want some more. Although, it is advised to eat this treat sparingly!
Some people argue that the delicious treat dawned from the Victorian Era. During that time, "sandwich cookies" and cakes filled with jams, cremes or lemon curd were popular desserts. One could see how maybe that could have inspired the "s'more". Although, back then marshmallow was very different then what we think of the namesake now.
It is unclear at what point the name "some more" evolved into the "S'more" we all recognize today.
(Maybe a childs mispronouciation?)
It seems to us, like many others have also concluded, a child had to have created this campfire treat! Who else would want to mix all that, ooey-gooey stickiness together while camping?
(Not a parent, that's for sure.)
