Description of Product: ” National S’mores Day is August 10, and there is no better way to celebrate the occasion than to gather around the bonfire with friends and family to make the classic summer treat! Made from the delicious combination of pure Hershey’s® milk chocolate, crisp graham crackers and toasted marshmallows, S’mores have brought families together around the fire since the recipe was first published in the Girl Scouts handbook in 1927.
It’s easy to celebrate this sweet holiday together with family and friends – all you need are S’mores! Whether on vacation or closer to home, here are some simple ways to bring your celebration to life:
Family Time with S’mores – Make National S’mores Day a family affair by getting everyone involved. Little ones can be in charge of assembling the graham crackers and Hershey’s milk chocolate, while adults and older children take care of toasting the marshmallows. Once the S’mores are ready, dig in and enjoy this tasty treat together.
Grilled S’mores – For a fun new way to enjoy S’mores, try making them on the grill! Simply wrap S’mores in aluminum foil and place on a medium-hot grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side. When you’re done, you’ll have S’mores that are grilled to perfection.
Summer Vacation S’mores – S’mores aren’t only for camping! Many hotel chains offer fire pits or grilling areas which are perfect for making S’mores to help sweeten your trip and create a new family tradition. Staying home? You can also build S’mores at the park or playground in the designated picnic or grilling area.
Fire up the Fire Pit – Can’t get out to a campground? No problem! Make an impromptu camp fire setting at home over your backyard fire pit. You can even use real sticks to roast your marshmallows to make yourself feel like you’re immersed in the great outdoors.
Party with S’mores – Celebrate the occasion by bringing S’mores ingredients to an upcoming summer gathering! Guests will love making gooey S’mores and you’ll be the hit of the party.

Review of Product: Every year at BlogHer Hershey has a fabulous s’mores suite where you can make your own s’mores inside the hotel! They provide sternos, graham crackers, Hershey chocolate and marshmallows. It is so much fun to chill with your friends in the suite and enjoy the yummy s’mores! Call me non-traditional but I’d much rather make my s’mores inside away from the bugs, etc. I am not a camper at all! In honor of National S’mores Day we made s’mores with Noah last night and he had a blast! It was a nice family bonding activity and nothing tastes better than a gooey s’more!
