    If Heaven Existed, This Would Be It

    I'm so glad the only store I can get these scrumptous Vegan Smores is about 15 miles away. I only get out that way every few weeks or so. But everytime I'm there, I've got to get a Sweet and Sara Peanut Butter Smore. They are high in calories, but let me tell you, they are worth...
