There Are Three New Flavors of Girl Scout Cookies . . . But Don’t Get Too Excited

I saw a headline today that said, “Girl Scouts Add Three New Cookies to Iconic Lineup” . . . and obviously I was thrilled. “So long, New Year’s resolution . . . the Girl Scouts want to fatten me up and I’m gonna let ’em!”

Then I saw what the new flavors are . . . and frankly my diet will be just fine.

Two of the new flavors are gluten free, so, yeah . . . PASS. And the third is filled with ingredients that sound “healthy” enough to make the cookies taste bad, but not healthy enough to actually make cookies a sensible part of a good diet.

The three flavors are:

1. Gluten-Free Trios. These are gluten-free peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies made from whole grain oats.

2. Gluten-Free Toffee-tastic. These are butter cookies with little toffee bits.

3. Rah-Rah Raisins. These are basically oatmeal raisin cookies with a bad-sounding twist. They’re made with whole grain oats, raisins, and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks.

But the three flavors won’t be available everywhere . . . the Girl Scouts are rolling them out in test markets this year.

For the First Time Ever, You Can Buy Girl Scout Cookies Online

For the First Time Ever, You Can Buy Girl Scout Cookies Online

Do you like Girl Scout Cookies, but hate seeing the smile on a young girl’s face when you buy a box from her? Your day has arrived.

The Girl Scouts announced yesterday that they’ll be selling their cookies online for the first time ever this year.

They released a statement saying they resisted selling online because face-to-face sales were a good learning experience for girls . . . but they realized they were leaving a ton of money on the table.

No, wait . . . that’s not the reason they gave. They say they’re selling online because, quote, “[This] will also allow customers to help girls learn 21st-century skills grounded in technology.”

It looks like each local Girl Scouts region will handle the sales and distribution in their area, so your money will still go to your local Girl Scouts.

The cookies are set to go on sale on the 12th at GirlScouts.org.
