Graham crackers were another mystery to them. Italians haven't grasped the concept of cinnamon in a cracker yet. They didn't exactly survive the trip to Italy (our smores had many pieces stuck on them), but they were good anyhow.
They also didn't want to use sticks, so we started with kabob sticks until our hands were becoming red. Then we went out in the pitch black to gather some olive branches for the roasting.
They were a big hit. I think it will soon become the new rage.
