Summer w/ The Kids Guide: Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker {Review & Giveaway}


 Featured Sponsor


We are enjoying our last week home before school begins and as we do that we are spending some fun time in the evening creating some new amazing treats courtesy of Nostalgia Electrics' Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker!
The Story of Nostalgia Electrics

In April 2001, a table top hot air version of the full size, turn of the century popcorn carts was developed. With its old fashioned looks and trying to carve a niche in the market, Gregg Bond, president and inventor, coined the brand, Nostalgia Electrics.

After the initial delivery of the hot air popper in October 2001, the success was immediate with goods selling out faster then Nostalgia Electrics could replenish them. It was at that point they  knew they had a successful product line. So Gregg Bond and his team developed a line of products that was geared towards old fashioned family fun, keeping the focus on its niche and keeping price points affordable. Items such as snow cone carts, hot dog carts, cotton candy carts, etc were developed and launched.

In 2003, Nostalgia Electrics introduced the worlds first home version of the chocolate fondue fountain. From there Nostalgia Electrics has been true to its niche and has developed over 100 innovative and old fashioned design products that are shipped to over 27 countries worldwide. Today, the same development team is working on many more products to help make your life a party. 

About the Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker


The enjoyment of roasting marshmallows over a campfire flame can be brought to the comfort of your own kitchen. The Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker has a charming appeal and roasts up to 9-12 marshmallows at a time. No more splintered fingers or dropping marshmallows in the dirt with this convenient device. Each marshmallow evenly cooks to a crisp golden brown outside, gooey-sweet inside. Add graham crackers and chocolate squares to make a delicious s'mores treat. 


Product Details:

  • includes 50 bamboo skewers
  • 2 minute cooking timer with automatic shut-off
  • No pre-heating required
  • Removable drip tray
  • Power on/off light

ace and friends thoughts




As we don't have access to a campfire or firepit, the Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker was perfect for us, plus as an added bonus, we could roast marshmallows in on pajamas. What's not to love about that?!! It definitely roasted our marshmallows perfectly and heated them in virtually no time at all. There is a timer on the side of the S'more Maker that can be adjusted to your roasting pleasure. There is a drawer located on the front of the machine to store your extra supplies and s'mores ingredients. This machine looks pretty sleek and it performs as it claims.... we love our s'mores at our house and now we can enjoy them ALL year long! Final thoughts: The Old Fashioned S'Mores Maker made an ooooeeee, gooooeeeey deliciously good treat!
