9 S'mores Makers That Prove People Hate The Outdoors

Amazon

S'mores are to campfires what ice cream is to summer. The two belong together. Or, at least, they're supposed to. But we're starting to get the feeling that some folks are trying to break this classic couple up. Some people out there seem to want to take the fire out of the s'more -- and it has us questioning our faith in humanity.

You guys, there is an insane amount of s'mores makers that have taken the campfire entirely out of the s'more-making process and replaced it with sterno cans, electric burners and microwaves. It's just not right.

We know there are people out there who don't know how to build a fire -- it isn't an essential skill anymore. And there are others who, even if they could build a fire, live too deep in the city to ever get the chance. To you we say, fine, use a microwaveable s'more maker. We wouldn't want anyone to go through life without experiencing one of the marshmallow's greatest accomplishments. (You could also partake in these 40 s'more-inspired desserts.) But to everyone else we say, GO BUILD A FIRE, and don't support indoor s'mores makers please... just look at how ridiculous they are.
