A Little History

August 10, marks a proud day in Girl Scout history – National S’mores Day! Did you know this camp classic was basically invented by Girl Scouts? In 1927, the first s’mores recipe was printed in the Girl Scout handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” Legend says the name “s’mores” came about because everyone who tasted the gooey campfire concoction asked for “some more.”

But wait, there’s s’more! Remember last year’s popular Girl Scout S’mores™ cookies? You guessed it, they’re back. The Girl Scout’s fun twist on the timeless treat will return for the 2019 Cookie Season – woohoo! During their debut last season, the Girl Scout S’mores™ cookie became the most popular flavor to launch in the 100+ years Girl Scouts have been selling cookies.
