Summer is right around the corner, and if you love s’mores like I do, you’ll definitely want to check out the Sam’s Club S’mores Kits they have back in stock. I’ll be honest, whenever I’m tasked with buying all the ingredients for s’mores, I find it kind of a pain to make sure I have enough to feed a crowd. But I did the math on this all-in-one S’mores Kit from Sam’s Club and figured out that it’s actually a few bucks cheaper than if I were to buy everything separately.
This kit has all the ingredients you need for standard s’mores, including graham crackers, marshmallows, and, of course, plenty of full-size Hershey’s chocolate bars. Plus, the kit includes a full 18 servings’ worth (or maybe a few less, with the way I eat them). So, whether you’re planning a camping trip or just stocking up for a backyard bonfire, the Hershey’s S’mores Kit is an all-around good buy according to my calculations. But let me show you my reasoning.

You’d spend $2.62 more if you bought each ingredient individually at Walmart.
Whenever things are sold in a “kit,” I’m hesitant to give in to the hype because it often ends up costing me more than if I bought all the ingredients separately. Well, not this time. If you were to buy each ingredient at Walmart — and get enough to make 18 s’mores — you’d end up spending $14.96, or $0.83 per s’more.
Here’s a breakdown of what buying each item individually from Walmart would cost you:
- Buy 1 Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Candy Bar, 6 ct — $4.88
- Buy 3 Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Candy Bars, 1 ct — $1.24
- Buy 1 Jet-Puffed Marshmallows, 12 oz — $1.78
- Buy 1 Honey Maid Honey Graham Crackers, 14.4 oz — $4.58
Total Cost: $14.96
