Girl Scouts Introduce New Cookie To Celebrate 100th Anniversary
It's almost that time of the year, the time when those bright-eyed little Girl Scouts start knocking on your door and trying to sell you delicious cookies, just in time to spoil your New Year's resolution to lose weight. Well, in addition to the Thin Mints and the Samoas, there's a new cookie in their arsenal this year, and it celebrates a major milestone for the Girl Scouts.
To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of their organization, the Girl Scouts have announced they will be selling a brand new cookie this year: the "Savannah Smiles." The new cookie, named after the Georgia hometown of Girl Scouts' founder Juliette Gordon Low, is a lemon-flavored, wedge-shaped cookie dusted with powdered sugar.Along with the other 10 varieties of cookies, the Savannah Smiles will start going on sale in the Lubbock area on January 20th, and will continue until March 4th.
The Girl Scouts were founded on March 12, 1912, and today, there are over 2.7 million young girls who are part of the organization. As a former Girl Scout myself, I have fond memories of selling those cookies. (Though I think at that age, I was more interested in eating the cookies rather than selling them.) And personally, I'm looking forward to picking up a box of Tagalongs myself...
