President Obama makes Bear Grylls a s’more on ‘Running Wild’

President Obama made a s’more for Bear Grylls on Friday night’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls on NBC (Season 2, Episode 9).

Obama made dessert over their campfire after Bear cooked up some salmon that had been partially eaten by a bear in the adventure in the Alaskan wilderness.

“I love you but that looks terrible,” Grylls said when Obama handed him the s’more he made over their miniature campfire. Obama noted that his daughter Sasha, an experienced summer camper, is the s’more expert in the family.

“I promise you it’s better than anything you’ve ever had on this show,” Obama said.

It’s important to note that the ingredients of the s’more were traditional ones, unlike the yogurt and strawberry replacements that sparked controversy when Michelle Obama’s officially endorsed USDA MyPate Twitter account tweeted a s’mores recipe back in May.
