It may not be Girl Scout cookie season just yet, but it IS National S’mores Day and Girl Scouts of the USA gave us a sweet treat by introducing two new cookies for the 2017 season and by the sounds of it, they will be delish!
Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is celebrating National S’mores Day 2016 by revealing their two new commemorativeGirl Scout S’mores™ cookies, which will be sold in 2017! The new s’mores-inspired cookies are not just perfect for today’s national holiday, but they also celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies! And, they are the first new addition to the Girl Scout Cookie clan since 2015!
Before they sold everyone’s favorite Thin Mints and Caramel deLites, Girl Scouts had a tradition of making s’mores by the campfire as early as the 1920s, according to GSUSA. They even were one of the first to publish the traditional s’mores recipe of graham crackers, hershey and marshmallows under the name “Some More.” The organization has such a cool history!
“The new Girl Scout S’mores cookies capture the adventurous spirit, love of the outdoors and feeling of community that are synonymous with Girl Scouts,” said Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of GSUSA, which has 2.7 million active participants. Plus, with every box of cookies, consumers are investing in the futures of millions of girls in the United States.
These new sweet additions,Girl Scout S’mores™, are a nod to the different ways of making a traditional s’more. One cookie features a graham cracker double-dipped in a creme icing (OMG yum!) and coated in chocolate. The other is a graham cracker sandwich cookie with a marshmallowy filling. Sounds like some gooey goodness. Stick them in the microwave to get that campfire feel and you’ll be reminiscing on your own Boy Scout and Girl Scout days!
You’ll have to wait to try the Girl Scout S’mores™ until the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Season, which begins in January. But, until then, Girl Scouts will be hosting campfires around the country to celebrate their new cookie and National S’more Day this evening and inviting communities to enjoy the fun of making this classic treat!
