Cookie lovers get another reason to start off this year with a bang as Girl Scout Cookie launches its new flavor of the season “Savannah Smiles.”
The lemon-flavored Savannah Smile marks the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts and joins classics such as Thin Mints, Samoas and Do-Si-Dosa.
Named after the Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low’s hometown, Savannah, the new lemony cookie will be wedge-shaped and crispy.
“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,' says the company press release. Each box of Savannah Smiles will contain about 28 cookies which will have zero grams of trans fats per serving.
The Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) is an organization for young girls in the United States and American girls living abroad and was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912. The Girl Scout cookie program began in 1922 with homemade recipes of sugar cookies published in the Girl Scouts’ American Girl magazine.
Around 200 million Girl Scout cookie boxes get sold every year under different names by different bakeries. Till date, Girl Scout has launched 28 varieties of which 11 are currently available in the market. The best-selling Girl Scout cookies are Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs.
The sales of Savannah Smiles will kick off later this month, or in early February.
