What year were S'mores invented? 1927T he origin of this tasty snack is credited to the entrepreneur Alec Barnum. However, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the 1927 publication of Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Even though the Girl Scouts were not the first ones to make s’mores, Girl Scout groups describe them in their reports as early as 1925. Earlier recipes used the name “Some Mores.” It is unclear when the word “S’mores” became the more common name. Though the exact date s'mores were invented remains a mystery, the first formal recipe for the treat, then called “Some Mores,” is recorded in the 1927 book, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” The original recipe calls for 16 graham crackers, 16 marshmallows and eight bars of chocolate broken in two.Aug 10, 2018
