Born in the Tundra of Minnesota, I have since become a bit of a Gypsy. Currently calling home base the hot sands of Arizona, I do still travel often. Whether the journey is a physical one, or one taken by reading a fantastic book it doesn't matter, the fun is always in the adventure. As always I am an eclectic person that likes a wide array of things and has many passions. Creating, advocating for animals and Mothering just to name a few.

I love S’mores. LOVE them. I mean doesn’t everyone? I don’t sit around eating them all day or anything (though right now kind of tempted too), so why is the US government messing with my S’more? Yes I just read (and I know I am a little behind on it) that the wonderful Government (Michelle Obama and USDA) have now made a new S’more.


Here it is. Does that look like a S’more to you? I mean seriously. Does that look like a S’more?

Can you imagine taking the kids out camping and enjoying oh yeah you are having fun doing the sing along and then you say “Let’s have S’mores!” the cheers go up. Huzzah! Yay! Then you bring out the YOGURT! Oh yeah. Yogurt. I see mega mutiny happening, epic tantrums…gads can you imagine this as summer camp?! As a former camp counselor……..I wouldn’t have done it. I value my life.

Now I am a democrat and I have defended the Obama admin on occasion, but this. Really? I know American’s as a whole need to eat healthier but seriously? Like really?! Most people only eat S’mores in moderation as a treat for a special holiday event or at the family reunion. Some even eat them less then that.

Leave the s’more alone.

If you want to give the kids a healthy snack of low fat yogurt and strawberries on a graham cracker, sure go for it. That is a healthy snack it is and I am sure it is good. It is not however a S’more. No it is not. Nope. Sure is not.

What is even more laughable is that the USDA website say’s this is an “inexpensive” treat and sure it is not that expensive, but strawberries CAN be pretty expensive sometimes, like all fresh produce. 1lb of them was nearly $4 the last time I saw at my local affordable shop. None of them were very impressive either. On the USDA website they of course say each serving costs .39 cents which is affordable, but can you buy just one strawberry, one bit of yogurt ect?

I dunno I am just ranting a bit because I am offended that wanna call that thing a S’more. Call it a strawberry graham sand which or something similar. It looks like a fine snack, one I would eat. It is not however, a S’more.
