In celebration of both National S'mores Day and its 100th year of selling zillions of cookies, the Girl Scouts of the USA announced Wednesday the addition of two new Girl Scout Cookies to its lineup of Thin Mints, Samoas, and many more. Both are inspired by the classic s'mores campfire treat, but probably less messy and, uh, burnt.
As the organization explains in a press release, the two S'mores flavor versions are based on the different ways people make/burn/eat s'mores. One version is a crispy graham cookie that's double-dipped in a creme icing and coated in chocolate, while the other version is a graham sandwich cookie that comes with a chocolate and marshmallow filling. The S'mores cookies will arrive -- one or the other, depending on your market -- for the 2017 cookie season, the organization said.
"As we approach the 100th anniversary of the first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts, it only seems natural to celebrate it with a new cookie flavor that ties to our heritage and captures the adventurous, take-charge, and civic-minded spirit of our girls," Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, said in a statement. 'Now consumers will have another delicious way to support girls as they hone leadership, financial literacy, business, and people skills, while using their cookie earnings to address community issues, or invest in fun and educational experiences."
