mmmmmmmmmmmm, S'mores!  Who doesn't love 'em?  Gooey marshmellow, melty chocolate, graham crackers - messy goodness. 

While on vacation we found another ice cream spot called S'mores Ice Cream and Coffee Shop at 3600 South Atlantic Ave, in New Smyrna Beach. 

It's a great concept - a walk up shop with two windows and beach sand instead of grass on the front of the property.  They have scattered picnic tables around for seating, and there is plenty of parking. 

Here is where the S'mores come in!  The clever gimic is that they have installed 2 large gas fire pits.  Around each fire pit are several wooden adirondack chairs.  You can order a s'mores kit for about $4 which includes 2 wooden dowels and enough crackers, chocolate, and marshmellows to satisfy my 2 kiddos!  You plant yourself at the fire pit and roast 'em the way you like 'em.  It was fun and yummy!  (of course, you need to watch little ones around the fire pits!) 

It was crowded the night we went and the staff seemed a little stressed.  The menu is extensive offering shakes, smoothies, sundaes, soft serve, hot dogs, and many different coffee drinks. I thought some of the menu items were a little pricey - we stuck with the s'mores.

The BIG draw back and our only real complaint was the bugs!  No-see-ums! That's really  what they are called - tiny biting, flying insects so small they are hard to see.  Once the sun goes down, they come out.  Our legs and feet were all biten up by the time we left.  Our itchy bites took about a week to heal up! 

All in all - cute place, fun atmosphere, yummy s'mores, and definitely memorable, but next time we won't forget the bug spray!  Family Approved!
