Camping 2012: Saturday Night

We were sort of anxious for the sun to start setting, knowing it would be time for another campfire with hotdogs.

I knew we had to have S'mores. No graham crackers here. No skinny Hershey bars. No real marshmallows. But we made it work! I used a sweet Turkish "biscuit" that Turks have with tea. Our chocolate bars were thick (no complaints there). We never saw marshmallows here until just a few years ago. Why? They are a pig product. That's right, readers. The part that makes your campfire marshmallows spongy is made from a pig's snout. The brand that finally appeared here says this on the back, "This product does not contain any pig gelatine or any other pig based ingredients. Warning: excessive use of sorbitol may cause diarrhea." Yum. Dig in!
They were good. Everyone got their marshmallows good and burned, then smashed them in the middle of the S'more.
Sitting by the campfire with this guy is nice. Even nicer than S'mores.

No idea what S'mores are, but the camping in Turkey sounds OK. My late father-in-law spoke Turkish; he was at the British Embassy in Ankara. I really must visit!

I could have went my whole life without knowing marshmallows contained pig parts LOL
