There's a New Girl Scout Cookie In Town, And It's Too Delicious to Resist
Add the new Girl Scout cookie flavor to your must-taste list.
If your New Year's resolutions are of the clean-eating variety, you might want to put your healthy goals on hold for this crucial cookie announcement. Girl Scouts of the USA added a new cookie flavor to their already stellar roundup, and the latest treat puts a sweet spin on a time-honored classic.
Caramel Chocolate Chip joined the rest of the tried-and-true Girl Scout cookie lineup this week, a delectable list that includes favorites like Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Samoas, Thin Mints and Trefoils. Baked with rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and just a hint of sea salt, the newest Girl Scout treat aims to be a hit among those with diet restrictions, since the recipe is gluten free.
The Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie joins other gluten free Girl Scout options like the Toffee-Tastic dessert, which was first introduced in 2015. To taste it for yourself, you'll need to act fast, because both gluten free sweets are offered only in select Girl Scout council markets for as long as supplies last.
While we love any excuse to indulge in a chocolate-laden cookie, the true spirit of the Girl Scout mission is yet another reason to treat yourself. "When you buy Girl Scout Cookies you are not only helping girls become business trailblazers, you're also helping them power their Girl Scout adventures and ensuring they have access to the cutting-edge leadership experiences and opportunities that only Girl Scout can offer," GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a statement.
From the looks of it, we're not the only ones with an affection toward Girl Scout desserts. Jennifer Garner posted a short video to her Instagram page last year, where she captioned the content with "Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints."
