The best part of a sâ€™more is pushing it together. There is nothing more barbaric than seeing a full-figured marshmallow that hasnâ€™t been smushed into sâ€™moredom. Right out of the microwave (or campfire for you sâ€™more purists), the first thing to do is to smush that sucker together. It is a satisfaction that should be shared amongst all foods; it is pure enjoyment on an instinctual level. (Perhaps thatâ€™s why clamshell-type grills and panini presses are so popular.)
Unfortunately, the cold, modern, technological world has given us the Micro Sâ€™Mores Maker, a damnable machine that automates the sâ€™more-smushing for us. Worst of all, it does this in only ten seconds. The world may never again see an unsmushed sâ€™more, except out in the wild. Which might not be such a bad thingâ€”back to nature as it were.
