@Kidsandliz A microwave s’more is okay. I don’t trust this particular nonsense, but I’ll make a microwave s’more and not be mad about it. S’mores from a camp fire are obviously best. S’mores from a charcoal grill are somewhere in between. But it’s not like I won’t eat steak if it’s not grilled over an open flame. That’d just be silly. Likewise why would I deny myself the tolerable goodness of a microwave s’more or indeed the unique pleasure of nuking a marshmallow or peep?
I do confess to almost never eating SPAM when not camping. SPAM needs the extra help tho. A s’more does not.
I have one. My daughter got it as a birthday present about 5 years ago and we have used it a total of about 3 times. It isn’t horrible, but I agree with @kidsandliz …it definitely doesn’t do a ‘real’ s’more justice. No browning at all when you nuke a marshmallow. The graham cracker doesn’t get soggy (probably because it only takes like 20 seconds to cook). It’s a cute novelty that does work, but it takes up cabinet space and will be heading to Goodwill in the not too distant future.
@unksol thanks for posting that…it was funny because it’s true! I think a plate would do the same thing…
As I mentioned above, we have only used ours like 2 or 3 times because my little girl enjoyed the novelty…but retail was $50 dollars? No way!! I sure hope the friend that gifted it to my daughter didn’t pay more than $5!
Oh yeah…another thing about the video that’s accurate is that it makes a big crumbly mess when you bite into it. I’m not a huge fan of s’mores and I definitely don’t want to wear one.
