National S'more Facts

Did you know that s'more is short for "some more"? Here are some more facts, courtesy of Hershey:

  • Nearly 90 percent of Americans have had a s'more
  • S'mores folklore suggests that s'mores were named right by the campfire; after eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!" which blended together to sound like s'more. The first recipe was published in a 1927 Girls Scouts book
  • Americans buy 90 million pounds of marshmallows every year; half are toasted over a fire during summer months
  • For the third year in a row, the town of Morrisville, North Carolina will change its name to S'Morrisville to commemorate the holiday
