#6-side-by-side_largeTwo s’more flavors to love are coming!

For the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scout cookie-selling, the Girl Scouts announced that they will be introducing two brand new types of cookies.

The two new cookies are both named Girl Scout S’mores, and were announced in conjunction with the all-important National S’mores holiday. Both cookies are inspired by the summer campfire treat we all know and love.

According to the Girl Scouts blog, one Girl Scout S’mores is a “crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating” and the other is a “crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallowy filling”

To celebrate, Girl Scout councils all over the country are hosting campfires, inviting communities to join in the fun of making s’mores and learn about the exciting and impactful programs Girl Scouts offer (while also promoting the new cookies!)

These newest additions come a little over a year after the group launched three other new flavors, and will be available during the always highly anticipated 2017 cookie season.

One hundred percent of the cookie earning stays with local councils and troops, benefiting girls through fun program experiences. Girl Scout troops can then decide how those funds are invested in different educational experiences, volunteer work, or other activities. Girls who participate in the cookie-selling program learn great skills such as how to manage money, set goals, make decisions, and communicate with adults. All qualities that are necessary for a growing girl, but aren’t always taught in schools.

To find out about the new cookie varieties and when the Girl Scouts will be selling cookies near you, visit  www.girlscouts.org/meetthecookies or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app that is free for iOS and Android phones.
