The Newest Girl Scout Cookie Flavor Will Make Your Mouth Water

Everyone goes a little broke when Girl Scout Cookie season rolls around. There’s something that’s so damn addictive about those brightly colored boxes. Girl Scout Cookies have been around for as long as many of us can remember, and is a long-lasting tradition. In order to celebrate the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies, they’re giving US a gift in true Scout fashion. In 2017, they will be introducing S’mores Girl Scout Cookies to their extensive lineup. We’re already preordering, like, 50 boxes.

And the Girl Scouts aren’t just giving us one new cookie. They’re going all out and adding two different kinds of S’mores Cookies. One will be a “crispy graham cookie double dipped in yummy crème icing and finished with a scrumptious chocolatey coating” (1) while the other will resemble more of a traditional s’more as “crunchy graham sandwich cookies with creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling” (2). So not only are we getting a concoction of two delicious desserts in one, but we get options too.

Girl Scouts actually have a history with the dessert. In the 1920s, s’mores started gaining popularity, and of course, the Girl Scouts were all over it. They published one of the first recipes for “Some More” in 1925, then another for “some mores” in 1927. Now, the treat is a quintessential American classic… just like Girl Scout Cookies. To launch the 100-year celebration, Girl Scouts will be hosting s’mores campfires across the country, inviting the community to snack together and learn more about their program, one that impacts nearly two million young girls.

And some of the best news of all: the Girls Scouts say that both versions of the S’mores cookie are free of artificial flavors and colors, high-fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated oils. So you can feel slightly less terrible when you finish the box the day you buy it. Thank you, Girl Scouts of America!

January 2017 (aka Cookie season aka the most wonderful time of the year) can’t get here fast enough.
