Food Critic’s Review:

This was a really, REALLY, sweet treat. The first two bites were so sweet that I didn’t think I was going to be able finish it! However, the last few bites of it had a better blend of the ingredients, particularly the graham cracker, and that made the bars a lot better. Overall, these are still really sweet, so if you don’t enjoy too much sweetness, this might not be the treat for you; however, it grew on me as I ate it, so if you feel like a good old campfire s’mores but don’t have the campfire, give these a shot!
