The most magical thing happened today. No, we're not talking about National S'mores Day or even National Lazy Day (as if moms have time to be lazy).
Really, the jaw-dropping news is that, to celebrate their upcoming 100th anniversary, the Girl Scouts just announced two new cookies for the 2017 cookie season: S'mores. Girl Scout S'mores are two different kinds of cookies. According to their press release, one is a "crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating" and the other is a "crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallowy filling."
The first type is vegan and both are free of artificial colors and partially hydrogenated oils.
Now we can have a taste of the classic campfire treat without even having to be anywhere near a campfire. (Why don't we just camp at home from now on, kids? Better yet, in our pajamas. Actually, we'll just take a quick nap while you go to town with the cookies.)
The new cookies join a string of new pushes by the Girl Scouts, including last year's three new flavors (Toffee-tastic, Trios and Rah-Rah Raisins) and June's new line of Girl Scout cookie mixes. S'mores were popularized by the Girl Scouts in the 1920s, so it's only about time that they came up with a cookie version of the marshmallow-chocolatey goodness, too.
