Whether it's a outdoor barbecue, a party or movie-under-the-stars night, you can sweeten this season's fun and celebrations with an iconic summer treat. In case you've been living an extraordinarily sheltered life, a s'more is a delicious treat made from three simple ingredients—graham crackers, toasted marshmallows, and melted chocolate bars.

Obviously because you'll always want "some more" of this rich, decadent treat. Big companies have taken note of this and carry products based on the super s'mores craze:
