A s'more, pre-melted. NPR
There are a number of As Seen On TV products that make great sandwiches: the George Foreman Grill, say, or The Thighmaster Thigh-Powered Panini Squeezer. But only one was recently re-gifted to one of our staffers: The Micro S'mores Microwave S'more Making Kit. It's a little plastic box you use to make non-messy s'mores in your microwave.

Intern Nic: What is the point of S'mores without the fire hazard?
Mike: I know, and it lacks that smokey campfire flavor. It should come with a guy to ash his cigarette into it.

Robert: It says "the plunger" is what makes it work.
Ian: I guess that's the least unappetizing plumbing tool. No good meal ever started with the phrase "try this, I made it with my toilet snake."
Ian: I like any food that has a picture of a crying boy on the box. That's why I love "Fido's In A Better Place Now Cereal."
Eva: This is really tasty. The boy that is my tongue is not crying.
Robert needed to consult the recipe for s'mores.

Peter: It says it uses "core fusion" technology. Pretty high tech.
Ian: Still, you have to feel sorry for the guy whose life was such that he needed to invent a way to make single-serving s'mores.
Intern Nic: It takes just 10 seconds. That's much faster than a campfire.
Mike: Yeah, I guess we'll need really fast ghost stories.
Ian: Once there was a woman, and she was calling from INSIDE THE HOUSE. The end.
[The verdict: We doubted the contraption was actually doing anything, so we tried making one without it, and it came out crooked and the marshmallow didn't melt as well. Would we buy this? Of course not. Are s'mores delicious? Of course they are.]
