BALLARD— National S'mores Day is Saturday, August 10, and in honor of the sweet event, Hot Cakes will launch their brand new S'mores Kit (homemade graham crackers, a bar of sophisticated smoked chocolate and corn syrup-free homemade marshmallows) for $25 (regularly $32) and offer a special S'more ice cream sandwich for $5. Ten-percent of sales that day will go to The Girl Scouts and toward educating the community about the importance of organic, local, GMO-free foods. [EaterWire]
