(KMSP) - The Girl Scouts are celebrating 100 years of selling cookies and National S’mores Day by introducing two new cookies. It’s the first time since 2015 new cookies have been added to the lineup.
‘Girl Scout S’mores’ will come in two versions, a crispy graham cookie double dipped in crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating and a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with chocolate and marshmallowy filling.
And to celebrate, many Girl Scouts across the country will be hosting campfires starting tonight.
“The new Girl Scout S’mores™ cookies capture the adventurous spirit, love of the outdoors, and feeling of community that are synonymous with Girl Scouts,” said Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. “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. 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.”
Both cookies will be released in 2017.
