Our newest cookie offering celebrates over 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. The Girl Scout S’mores™ became instantly popular, and are a delicious, mess-free way to relive summer nights spent around a campfire. The tradition of making and enjoying s’mores in the outdoors was popularized by our early Girl Scout sisters, with the recipe first appearing in 1927 for “some mores” in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, a resource book that also taught 12 ways to build a campfire.
In their debut last year, Girl Scout S’mores™ cookies became the most popular flavor to launch in the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies! Now joining legendary classics like Thin Mints® and Caramel deLites®/Samoas®, delicious Girl Scout S’mores are making a triumphant return to the lineup for the 2018 cookie season. This means cookie-lovers in the Central Florida area will again be able to get their hands on these delicious cookies, while powering unique and amazing experiences for girls with each and every cookie purchase.
Girl Scouts of Citrus will offer the crispy graham cookie double-dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating. This clever take on the time-honored campfire treat was developed in response to consumer trends. It is vegan and free of artificial colors, preservatives, and partially hydrogenated oils.
Girl Scouts are able to do incredible things thanks to their cookie earnings. Many girl scout troops reinvest in our community by helping to build turtle habitats, providing supplies for homeless shelters and animal shelters, or donating part of the proceeds to a charity.
The council also reinvests these funds to further develop girl programming and provide financial aid opportunities for girls to participate in Girl Scouts. Each and every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies—100 percent of the net revenue of which stays local—is an investment in girls and their leadership capabilities, both now and in the future.
Cookie customers can get the S’mores hook-up from a Girl Scout near you, starting January 10, 2018
