Some Girl Scout cookies are perfection, and should never be messed with: your Trefoils, your Samoas, your Thin Mints. But every once in awhile, the Girl Scouts stirs up its lineup to come up with a new brand, like its recent release of S’mores cookies. A press release announces today that the upcoming 2019 cookie season will feature another GS cookie innovation, and it frankly sounds amazing: “The new Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie features rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and a hint of sea salt in a chewy cookie.”

As a bonus for some cookie lovers, the Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie joins the Toffee-tastic cookie in Girl Scouts’ gluten-free lineup. Sounds like Thin Mints may have some competition in 2019 sales. If the Girls Scouts need to send out boxes to some test markets, we will happily accept any samples sent in care of The Takeout like true cookie heroes.

Yeah, ok “hot take” or whatever, but I think Girl Scout cookies are just overpriced junk food and I hate how I get guilted into buying them every year.

Whenever I see scouts selling cookies, or popcorn, or mulch, or whatever I can’t help but feel like part of their scouting experience is just grooming them to become pawns for an MLM.
