Slideshow: Considering the Supermarket S'more

Pop-Tarts
Pop-Tarts
These immediately earned points for being extremely marshmallow-y with a thick, tacky filling. The graham cracker flavor is totally there and the chocolate, though it might not be the finest, serves its purpose well. I know some schools eat their Pop Tarts cold, but I highly recommend sticking these in the toaster. When warm, they are melty and more like an actual s'more. Plus, while toasting they give off a sugary s'more-like smell, which will only get you closer to that campfire feeling. This probably came the closest to the experience of eating a real s'more, and they disappeared pretty quickly in the office.
Luna Bar

This had no marshmallow in it at all. There was a layer of chocolate under a granola-like bar that was vaguely spiced to resemble graham crackers. It was way too sweet and artificial tasting, kind of like Splenda. I couldn't get over the complete lack of marshmallow, and I couldn't see much of a connection between this bar and an authentic s'more.
Ben and Jerry's

In typical Ben and Jerry's fashion, this ice cream didn't skimp on the mix-ins. The chocolate ice cream was packed with a marshmallow ribbon, crushed graham crackers and chocolate chunks. It's delicious, and the s'more is represented well. This was one of our favorites.

Resident cereal expert Leandra had this to say about Smorz: "The flavor of the 'chocolate coated graham pieces' is actually nothing like graham....The marshmallows are pretty interesting, bearing almost no similarity to their chalky Lucky Charms counterparts. When dry, the marshmallows are soft, springy, and pretty good. Strangely enough the marshmallows become hard and weird when wet, which perhaps speaks to the science of the Lucky Charms mallow. I'm not saying this cereal is entirely without its merits, I just probably wouldn't reach for it again."
