Venturing out into the wild is something primal, deeply embedded in our brains and satisfying in the most basic, human way. We cherish the outdoors, and when given the chance to remove the boundaries between us and nature, we always shout a resounding “Heck yes!!” (with a corresponding fist pump).

So, in honor of being one with wilderness, we’re transporting you into the forest beside a cozy campsite, nestled between a few of your best friends, and parked next to a roaring, toasty fire. What’s the only thing missing here? S’MORES!

We’ll tell ya, nothing will rain on your campfire like an upset stomach during a camping trip, and standard s’mores deliver quite the sugary shock to the gut on-the-go. On top of that, your run-of-the-mill s’more is also high-fat and is crafted of only-the-most-delicious (but junky) white flour.

So, to save our stomachs, whether camping in the woods or just camping out on the couch at home, we’ve created s’mores that taste just as delicious as the original, but are wheat-free, refined sugar-free and pack a health punch with high-antioxidant dark chocolate!

Best of all, these amazing three layer s’mores can easily be pre-made and taken on ANY and ALL of your #POUNDontheROAD trips, treks, and adventures!
