Girl Scouts Announce New S'mores Cookies

Just when you thought Thin Mints and Tagalongs were as good as it got, Girl Scouts of the USA is raising the bar.

Today, which happens to be national S'mores Day, the organization had announced two new s'mores-inspired cookies to its 2017 cookie lineup.

There is a chocolate-coated graham cracker and crème cookie and a sandwich cookie with chocolate and marshmallowy goodness filling. Both are, true to form, called "S'mores."

The coated cookie is vegan. Neither of the newbies contains partially hydrogenated oils or artificial colors.

The Girl Scouts have a strong tie to s'mores and the gooey treats are referenced as early adopters of the "Graham Cracker Sandwich" in a 1920s Campfire Marshmallows Cookbook. The recipe for "somemores" was published in the company's 1927 book, "Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts;" a 1938 tome marketed toward summer camps calls the treat "s'mores;" and the rest is sticky, chocolatey, burnt marshmallowy history.

Girl Scouts of the USA Director of Communications Stewart Goodbody tells Mashable, "We are sure to see some "Triple Decker S'mores" out there come cookie season where extreme s'more-ers use two Girl Scouts S'mores Cookies to sandwich a toasted marshmallow."

As with all Girl Scout cookies, prices vary according to each council's prices.

Now all you have to do is make a round of s'mores to hold you over until Jan. 2017, when the cookie season kicks off.

Every purchase of a box of Girl Scout Cookies helps power Girl Scout programming locally for nearly 2 million girls. For more information about Girl Scouts, visit www.girlscouts.org/join.
