I have often justified the consumption of unhealthy food on camp outs using the Camping Act. The Camping Act was adopted long ago when camping for recreation started to involve the leftovers from animals raised for meat and the combination of sugar in a variety of interesting forms.
Yes, the Camping Act afforded all the freedom to pile s’mores on top of hot dogs without fear of persecution.
As a side note, a buddy of mine in California loves s’mores. He and his family are almost fanatical about them but it wasn’t until he came to visit that he ate one that hadn’t been cooked in a microwave. He had never, “roasted the mallow” which killed me, of course. Anyway, Southeast Alaska affords us diverse recreational opportunities for which there are many menus.
