National S'Mores Day 2020 Deals and Recipes

National S'mores Day is on August 10, 2020—24 hours dedicated to a treat that delights many Americans on their camping trips.

According to Hershey's, nearly 90 percent of Americans have had a s'more. Americans buy 90 million pounds of marshmallows every year. As told to Newsweek by the chocolate company, s'mores were named right by the campfire when young children chanted "gimme some more", which came together to sound like "s'more". The first recipe was published in a 1927 Girls Scouts book.

The town of Morrisville, North Carolina, loves the day so much that it has changed its name to S'Morrisville to commemorate the holiday—this will be the fourth year it has done so. Many brands will also release limited edition products, including Jelly Beans Candy Company.

To help people across the country celebrate s'mores, Newsweek has brought together deals and freebies that don't require a camping trip. Don't miss out—some of these start during the weekend.

If you don't have access to a campfire set-up, there are several easy ways to roast a marshmallow at home. You can get creative by using a cooking torch, or by broiling marshmallows on a baking sheet until the top side is golden brown, and then flipping each marshmallow and repeating.

In addition to the traditional ingredients of graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallows, have some fun and get creative with additional toppings and recipe variations. I've tried s'mores recipes with everything from peanut butter to brownie chunks, and each unique recipe is delicious in its own right.
