Stuffed Puffs S’Mores Kit-Great for Indoors Too!-Review
I received samples of Stuffed Puffs S’Mores Kit ($14.00 value) in exchange for this review. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
When you think of S’mores, you may think of outdoors with cozy campfires. This is the classic way to experience this yummy treat. What if you get a craving and just aren’t near a campfire? I’ve been guilty of making s’mores over the stove because hey, why not? 😉
Now you can enjoy this delicious treat with a Stuffed Puffs kit that you can use indoors! And it’s quite clever. They hide the chocolate inside the marshmallows and the magic happens right inside your microwave in just a few tiny seconds. Here’s a little summary…then…onto the review!
Recently, the s’more, a century-old American tradition, was re-born when Stuffed Puffs® debuted at WalMart® to rave reviews. Using an innovative and proprietary manufacturing process, Stuffed Puffs puts the chocolate inside the marshmallow, so the chocolate melts while the marshmallow toasts, virtually guaranteeing a perfect s’more.
Stuffed Puffs puts an end to the frustration of juggling marshmallows, chocolate bars, and graham crackers around a campfire or hot grill. It eliminates the chunks of un-melted chocolate or uneven blending of chocolate and marshmallow that turns traditional s’more-making into a hit-or-miss adventure.
Now, in the spirit of making a good thing even better, Stuffed Puffs is introducing S’mores Indoors — turning a favorite taste of summer into a year-round treat. The introduction features a Stuffed Puffs S’mores Kit – a bag of Stuffed Puffs, and 2 sleeves of graham crackers (no chocolate bars needed) – available now, online at stuffedpuffs.com as well as at WalMart. By popular demand, consumers can also buy Stuffed Puffs Swag online at the eCommerce link https://stuffedpuffs.com/
“The idea was born around a campfire,” said Michael Tierney, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY in 2010. “and now with Stuffed Puffs you can bring that experience indoors with just 7 seconds in the microwave – something you can’t do with traditional marshmallows and chocolate.”
“Stuffed Puffs is a simple idea, but not easy to execute, which is why it hasn’t been done before,” Tierney continued. “I spent seven years figuring out a truly innovative system that breaks the rules of traditional candy making. And s’mores is only the starting point. We are already at work on different flavor and coating combinations for a treat that’s as instantly snackable as it is toastable.”
The verdict? They are pretty yummy and are almost as good as toasting them over an open flame. The only thing is it seemed to take a little extra effort just to get the chocolate to melt into chocolatey goodness with the marshmallow. It only takes a few seconds (depending on your microwave), to melt the marshmallows effectively. If you keep it in too long you might burn it or it turns to a very rubbery texture. This pic below was the first it melted at a good temperature. We probably should have kept it in about 2 seconds longer:
Once smashed together, the chocolate did start melting outward into the melted marshmallow as seen below. After the heat really pressed into the marshmallow, chocolate, and crackers, it was then the magic began.
You can even try these S’more kits over a traditional campfire. I bet it would make for an even more awesome treat! But, if you have a craving for a s’more and aren’t around a campfire, here you go! It’s the next best thing.
I would like to thank the folks over at Stuffed Puffs for giving my family the opportunity of trying out this awesome s’more kit. We would definitely buy it in the future.
