Celebrate with new cookies!
The Girl Scouts have introduced two new cookies this year, and they’re both s’mores.
The announcement was made August 10 of last year, which happened to be National S’mores Day. And really, what could embody the Girl Scout experience better than a s’mores cookie?
Now, which version of the Girl Scout S’mores cookies you’ll be able to buy depends on where you buy them.
The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council, which covers most of the Inland Empire, gets their cookies from ABC Bakers.
ABC Bakers’ version is a square graham cookie, dipped first in a creme icing and then again in a chocolaty coating. That’s it above on the left.
Little Brownie Bakers supplies the East Region of Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, which covers the west end of the Inland Empire — basically Fontana and points west.
Little Brownie Bakers’ version is a sandwich cookie — chocolate and marshmallowy filling sandwiched between two graham cookies. There’s a picture of it above on the right.
Here’s a look at the rest of the lineup:
ABC Bakers (The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council)
