The Classic S’more

Classic graham cracker marshmallow chocolate s'more.
Pelee Island Winery Lighthouse Semi-Sweet Riesling VQA white wine. Pale lemon in colour. The nose will open to a fragrant orchard fresh aroma with delicate notes of citrus and peach. Fruity and clean in texture moving smoothly across the palate into a long expressive finish.

Graham cracker, chocolate square and the perfectly roasted marshmallow. Who gets credit for this camping staple?

It appears the treat was a campfire staple long before the dictionary officially recognized it: The first known s’mores recipe was published in the Girl Scouts handbook Tramping and Trailing With the Girl Scouts in 1927. The snack was originally called “some mores.” – Real Simple Magazine
