Few things give me greater happiness than a box of thin mints, and few things send me into deeper pits of sorrow than an empty box of thin mints. The Girl Scouts of America sure can make a mean cookie, and to cap off a successful 2014, a year that made their delicious goodies available for purchase online, the organization is offering two new flavors.
Rah-Rah Raisins, the first of these offerings, is good news for those who crave the oatmeal raisin variety. To further sweeten things up, this cookie gets an extra bit of flavor from some Greek yogurt chips.
Toffee-tastic, the second of these flavors, include crunchy bits of toffee and are also gluten free. Unfortunately, they’ll only be available “in select Girl Scout council markets for as long as supplies last.” If this is a biscuit you’d like to have in your basket, don’t snooze on the opportunity!
Unfortunately, as we take a piece, we lose one too. Dulce de Leche and Thank You Berry Much are no longer listed on the official Meet The Cookies lineup on the Girl Scout website. Pour some out for those flavors.
While I’m at it, I figured it might be a good opportunity to suggest some other new flavors. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing like a Caramel deLite or a Tagalong, but sometimes playing with flavor combinations can be all you really need to create the next great cookie. Here are some suggestions:
Candy Cane – crunchy bits of candy cane and white chocolate for the perfect seasonal treat.
Snickerdoodle – a Girl Scout spin on a classic perhaps?
Cappuccino – For those who feel they are above Oreos, but aren’t about to go eating that gross biscotti stuff.
Kale – For those health-freak parents who also want to be trendy.
Cookie Dough – Does this one even make sense? I think it does, and I’m not really sure how, but it would obviously be delicious.
Cake Batter – Also known as the diabetes delight!
Neopolitan – Three flavors, one cookie. Just don’t be the jerk who only eats the chocolate and puts the rest back.
Root Beer Float – The closest thing we may ever have to a beer cookie.
Dunkin’ Donuts Croissaint Donut Cookie – Light, fluffy, and perfectly marketed.
Milanos – Two birds, one stone– Knock Pepperidge Farm down a few pegs and recreate possibly the best cookie out there.
Thin Mint Oreo – It’s like an Oreo, but there are two thin mints with creme between them. BRB, starting a petition here.
Doritos Locos Nacho Cheese – Live mas!!!!
