Did you know that S'mores has a day of their (its?) own? August 10th is S'mores day! S'mores were created by campers in the early part of the 20th century who, making use of the then-new mass produced marshmallow, found they could easily be warmed over a campfire. The S'mores Smoothie tastes much like a real S'more!

A Bite of History
The first recipe for s'mores was published in 1927 in the Girl Scout Handbook; however, the recipe was not the first pairing of chocolate, marshmallow and cookies. In 1913, the Mallomar cookie was introduced to market, followed in 1917 by the Moon Pie. Both products have a graham cracker-like base - a sandwich, in the case of the Moon Pie - and are topped with marshmallow and a layer of chocolate.
