It’s the most wonderful time of the year for cookie lovers, particularly those who love Girl Scout cookies. The annual fundraiser launches next week, with a new flavor being added to the mix.
2017 marks the 100th year of cookie sales and to celebrate, Girl Scouts are debuting a new flavor: S’mores. The crunchy graham sandwich cookie has creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling.
“The S’mores cookie is a delicious homage to the Girl Scouts’ influence on mainstream camping traditions and a celebration of our commitment to get girls outside,” said Marina Park, Girl Scouts of Northern California CEO. “When you buy a box of cookies you are supporting fun adventures and projects that build real-life skills, self-assuredness and a lifelong connection to nature.”
For those with dietary restrictions, know this: Thin Mints are now certified as vegan, Toffee-tastics are gluten-free, and Trefoils have no nuts.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, and Savannah Smiles will be sold for $5 per box. Toffee-tastic and the new Girl Scout S’mores cookies will be $6 per box.
In collaboration with three Bay Area craft breweries, the Girl Scouts of Northern California are hosting a series of Girl Scout Cookie and craft beer pairing fundraising events. In San Francisco, Magnolia Brew Pub at 1398 Haight St. will be offering a tasting flight of five different craft beers that pair with five different Girl Scout Cookies.
