Named for their ability to arouse the appetite into asking repeatedly for "some more," s'mores were likely to have grown popular with the rise of mass-produced marshmallows in 1900. (Previously, marshmallows consumption was limited to the wealthy and the sick -- doctors would often hide foul-tasting pills in marshmallows for easier digestion.) Today the graham cracker, chocolate and fluffy melted marshmallow remain a classic flavor combo.
