New S'mores Girl Scout cookies now available!


Behold the newest Girl Scout cookie: S'mores.

The Girl Scout cookie season officially began Tuesday morning. To mark the 100th year of the first known sale of Girl Scout cookies the organization has been the highly-anticipated S'mores cookie available. 

From the Girl Scouts: 

A century ago, girls started participating in what would evolve into the largest entrepreneurial training program for girls in the world: the Girl Scout Cookie Program®. Through the program, girls learn the essential skills they need to become effective leaders, manage finances, gain self-sufficiency, and develop confidence in handling money. To commemorate this banner year for the organization and celebrate how the cookie program powers amazing experiences for Girl Scouts year-round, the highly anticipated Girl Scout S'mores™ cookies are now available, joining classics like Thin Mints® and Trefoils®/Shortbread.

You can pre-order the S'mores cookies for $5.50 a box, which is $1.50 more than a box of the traditional varieties -- Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos and Savannah Smiles. Those are all just $4 a box. The best way to pre-order the cookies, of course, is by contacting a local Girl Scout member. 

“With all of our cookie varieties, girls place an initial order based on their sales goals, and if they start to run low they can reorder more inventories,” said Amanda Thomas, Girl Scouts of Southeast Michigan director of product program and retail operations. “S’mores is a little different because there is no opportunity to reorder or restock that particular variety after the initial order. As a result, there is a chance S’mores will be in limited supply when booths start. Pre-ordering is really the best way to guarantee that customers will have all the Girl Scout S’mores they want."
