Celebrate summer with Raaka S'mores!

Why not compromise with the heat and enjoy the unique bliss of melting chocolate in the form of a S’more?

S’more’s are a uniquely American tradition, synonymous with summer campfires and weekend getaways. The S’more was discovered in 1927, when it first appeared in the publication of Tramping and Trailing with The Girl Scouts. The genius behind this idea, of melting rich chocolate with gooey marshmallows between the honeyed crusts of two graham crackers, remains unknown.
