Jersey S’more Company

Founder of the Jersey S’more Company Jill Weiss stopped by the studio with some tasty treats. Our #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino sat  down to talk more about these delicious products. 

Weiss is a single mom who decided to follow her passion and create a gourmet s’mores company. Weiss explains the uniqueness of her company and how the handmade s’mores provide customized flavor and decorations for customers.

Jill brought in an assortment of different types of S’mores made with “Melty-gooey marshmallow in between 2 soft vanilla cookies, drenched in milk, dark or white chocolate, and sprinkled with yummy toppings”. There are also different sizes available. The large size is a S’monsters and a small is called  S’mini S’mores. How fun! People can customize decorations for different events or even as party favors! You can order online through their Facebook page The Jersey S’more Company and also now their website.

The Jersey S’more Company also received an award for The Best Gourmet S’mores and Other Treats in New Jersey by Best of NJ. Weiss explains how this is a major accomplishment to have her company be recognized as one of the best gourmet desserts in NJ.
