And according to the manufacturers… it’s actual chocolate!
Making s’mores is about to get a lot easier! Stuffed Puffs has created a chocolate-filled marshmallow which is apparently going to eliminate the messy part that comes along with crafting s’mores fireside.
Does this mean no more sticky, sandy fingers? *GASPS*
These bad boys hit the shelves of Walmart stores nationwide beginning on April 28 for a little under four dollars a bag.
The idea is that the chocolate will melt while the marshmallow toasts, leaving the only next step to be placing your showstopping puff of heaven between two graham crackers. Though the idea of ridding the classic assembly of this bonfire treat sounds like another lame marketing idea, we can all probably admit that taking a bite into two crackers, a gooey marshmallow and a hunk of chocolate isn’t always the easiest (or cleanest) task.
The chocolate-marshmallow hybrids were created by Michael Tierney, a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America who got the idea for the treat while sitting around a campfire. Tierney says that though it seems like a simple idea, the process of figuring out an innovative system allowing him to create a marshmallow with a chocolate center took him seven years.
We don’t know if we’re completely sold on this new spin on a good old-fashioned American favorite, but we’re definitely willing to try out a bag… or two before hitting one of our favorite L.A. bonfire destinations this summer!
