General Mills has partnered with the Girl Scouts of America to bring us cookie-inspired cereal.

Two cookie-themed cereals are now available for a limited time: Thin Mints cereal and Caramel Crunch, which is based off Caramel Delites.

General Mills hinted at the cereal in December, saying the boxes would hit shelves in early January.

“General Mills is excited about its relationship with Girl Scouts of the USA, an organization that promotes a lifetime of leadership, while preparing girls to empower themselves,” says Alan Cunningham, senior marketing manager for Cereal Innovation. “Consumers will be delighted when they open a box of Girl Scouts Thin Mints or Caramel Crunch cereal and smell and taste their favorite flavors.”

This is General Mills’ first licensing agreement with Girl Scouts of the USA.

The cereal will run you about $3 for an 11 ounce box and $4 for the 18.4 ounce family size box.

Earlier this year, to mark the 100th year of the first known sale of Girl Scout cookies - they released new Smores cookies.
