Ready for the quintessential summer sweet – the S’more. While you’re enjoying them (ours are chocolate covered) just know your tasting an historical trip. The marshmallow originally contained the marshmallow plant root, used by the ancient Egyptians for medicinal purposes. It wound up in North America and eventually became the candy we know and love in the late 1900s, when cooks replaced the plant with easy-to-use instant gelatin. In 1927, the candy appeared in a recipe for S’mores in Alec Barnum’s book “Trampling and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” The name likely came from the sentiment the treat inspires: “Give me some more.” Get some. They’re good!
