Forget the holiday treats, Girl Scout cookie season is nearly upon us. The Girl Scouts will be celebrating its 100th year in 2012 and to kick of the party right, they are introducing a new Girl Scout cookie. Meet Savannah Smiles.
According to the website:
“Celebrate the anniversary of the Girl Scouts with these bite-sized, lemon-wedge cookies dusted in powdered sugar and bursting with lemon flavor. Enjoy these delightful treats, remember where Girl Scouts began …and smile.”
Little Brownie Bakers, which makes Girl Scout cookies, said that the new cookie is a throw back to past customer favorites. Little Brownie Bakers said:
“Little Brownie Bakers is proud to pay tribute to the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting with a lemon cookie that reflects the heritage of past customer favorites. This lemon wedge cookie is cool and crisp, with just the right number of lemon chips to deliver tiny bursts of flavor. And, when you hold it right, you’ll quickly be reminded of that world-famous ‘Brownie Smile.'”
