Wow, I never realized how terrible my childhood was. Back in the day, if I wanted to enjoy Smores – the miracle food handed down directly from the heavens – I had to sit around a campfire. Often I was forced to camp, swim, play and then sit outside on a beautiful starlit night with friends and family and actually melt chocolate and marshmallows onto god’s gift to mankind – the graham cracker. It was horrible, after 30 years of therapy, it is still difficult to talk about.
McDonald’s Wants to Make Sure The Horrible Smores Suffering Ends Now!
Moms and Dads, please take a moment and kiss Ronald McDonald’s big clown feet. Yes, McDonald’s has made sure our kids never have to suffer through the hell of sitting around a campfire to enjoy their Smores…
Yep, now we can all just go to McDonalds and enjoy a Smores pie. How glorious it will be to sit around a McDonald’s table and enjoy Smores. Instead of telling scary stories and bonding around the campfire, now our kids can swap stories about Happy Meal toys and sit around the napkin dispenser. Thank you McDonald’s, thank you.
Sorry, McDonald’s – Campfires ARE Still Needed
The truth is, Smores are delicious, but I really believe some of that yummyness comes from making your own Smores over a campfire. Sorry, McDonalds, but not everything is made better by being shoved in a box and sold at a 24 hour Drive Thru window. Taking the campfire out of Smores is like taking the cone out of an ice cream cone.
Don’t Get Camping As Much As You Want? You Can Still Enjoy Swapping Stories At The Campfire
I wish we could sit around the campfire more as a family, but sometimes schedules get hectic and we don’t make it out camping as much as we would like. Still, we can enjoy some of the stories and tips that are shared around the virtual campfire that KOA (Kampgrounds of America) has created.

Don’t Go to McDonald’s, Go to The KOA Campfire
Parents, don’t take the easy way out and get a Smores pie at McDonald’s. Head over to the KOA Campfire and read some great tips and information on camping (and making Smores). I promise, if you spend some time at the KOA Campfire you will be inspired to go camping and enjoy some real Smores.
If all else fails, you can always stop at McDonald’s on the way home, I hear their next product is a bag of marshmallows that come pre-roasted.
