History of National Smores Day

The tale of National Smores Day is as rich and gooey as the dessert it celebrates. Mentioned a whopping 2319 times online, our beloved S’mores Day found its zenith of popularity on August 10th 2016. So, how did this sticky holiday come about?

The Origin of S'mores

While the inventor of the s’more is as unknown as the location of the lost city of Atlantis, its first written recipe pops up in a 1927 publication called 'Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.' That’s right, you have those spirited scouts to thank for your chocolaty mustaches!

The Spread of S'mores

From there, this scrumptious trio - graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate - melted into the national consciousness, squirreling its way into bonfires, camp outings, and late-night cravings all over the country. These golden brown gooey goodies quickly sparked a national obsession that still burns bright today.
