We've made s'mores with Snickers and s'mores with Twix. Nutella s'mores and white chocolate. There's Milky Way s'mores, dark chocolate s'mores, Heath Bar s'mores, Rolo s'mores...(imagine Bubba and Forrest here). The classic chocolate version is great, but a few years ago Joel invented a s'more he calls The Blazing Trio: chocolate, a schmear of peanut butter and a nice, salty pretzel nestled into the marshmallow.
We were having our friends Rob and Nancy over for dinner last night so of course I stocked up on s'mores materials, including the requisite pretzels. I was in a grocery store I don't know well. I was in a hurry. There was someone else blocking the pretzel display and I really just wanted to grab a bag and get a move on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I think we had each put away at least three of our delectable little toasted marshmallow treats when Rob went in for what he said was his last, a Blazing Trio. He picked up the bag of pretzels and said, "Um, these are mustard flavor." There was a beat of silence, then laughter. I had one bite of my Blazing Trio left and what had not tasted like mustard a moment before suddenly was a bit um...tangy.
Moral of the story: check the label on the bag before purchase, or else don't ever check it.
