Commence Squealing! New Girl Scout Cookie Flavor Announced
Can I get personal for just one second? When I was a wee lass, I wanted to be a Girl Scout. But the Maker put me on this planet with a hustling RN mother who to this very day, prefers working a long night shift. Whenever I inquired about joining the Girl Scouts, I was met with a stern “I don’t have time to stand outside grocery stores selling cookies with you” response. But before you think I had a terrible childhood involving living under the stairs or other such Potter-esque denials, I got over it pretty quickly when my mother would simply buy me a box of my desired cookie. It was the next best thing to group activities and being outdoors. And yes, I know that sounds terrible.
And it is with great snack-y anticipation that the Girl Scouts reveal their newest cookie creation for 2010, Thank U Berry Much – a cookie stuffed with “premium cranberries” and “sweetened with creamy, white fudge chips.” They helpfully come in a cranberry colored box in case you’ve forgotten what you’re snarfing.
The last new cookie variety, released in 2009, was the Dulce De Leche cookie – which sat unloved on my office desk for almost 3 months, nobody wanted them after trying just one. So will you snarf this new flavor? Or are you a Girl Scout Cookie Classicist? (A GSCC.)
