S’mores is the ultimate taste of childhood: An oozing marshmallow freshly-toasted by a campfire flame, melting chocolate, and a crunchy graham cracker to keep it all contained.

These days there’s more to s’mores than just those three elements, as the simple s’more is showing up in all sorts of variations. Here is a look at a few fun S’mores treats you can find in Vancouver.
