Hershey's Smores Kit Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #59. Susan said...A favorite memory of mine was going to overnight camp and making Smores at the campfire!


When I was younger my parents took us camping every summer. We would hike, fish, play in the creek, and make tinfoil dinners in the fire. I'm not really into the outdoors, but I wouldn't have missed camping for anything. Because every night before we went to bed, we would roast marshmallows and eat Smores.

To make classic Smores you need graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey's Milk Chocolate.


For those of you that don't know how to make a Smore, first you take a half a graham cracker and layer it with a couple of pieces of Hershey's Milk Chocolate. Then you roast a marshmallow and place it on the chocolate. Then you take the other half of graham cracker and press it down over the marshmallow. Then you eat it!


You can of course change things up according to your preference. I've had them made with cookies instead of graham crackers and Hersheys Cookies and Cream candy bars as opposed to milk chocolate. As I'm a bit of a chocoholic, I like to add an extra layer of chocolate to the top and sometimes even a layer of Nutella. My husband has talked about adding bananas or strawberries to his, but I don't think he's actually done it.

My husband really wanted to take our girls camping this year. But being big, pregnant, and uncomfortable, I wasn't really up for it. My girls were a little bit sad, but quickly got over it when I told them Hersheys was sending us a Smores Kit.

When we got our Smores Kit, we were planning on breaking in our fire pit and having a family camping night. We were going to make tinfoil dinners and then roast marshmallows for Smores. But the weather was bad and the ingredients were just sitting on the counter. One microwave and a couple of minutes later we all sat down to a tasty treat.


To Buy - Smore's are a tasty fun treat for summer - and all of the products are available for a low price at your local Wal-Mart!

What's more, Hershey's recently launched their "Say S'mores" Campaign to Encourage Families to Create ‘S'more’ Summertime Memories.

  1. One of my favorite summer memories is being about five and making smores for the first time. I thought it was so neat that I got to stick food into the fire! After completely charring several marshmallows, I finally prepared a smores worthy marshmallow - so good!

  76. One of my favorite summer memories is a simple one. It's of playing outside in our back yard as it got dark. There were bats flying around, which made it kind of spooky. We played kickball in the yard. I still have the fantastic memory/feeling of being young and carefree, which becomes more and more precious the older I get!
