When it comes to Girl Scout cookies, most people know what they like—Thin Mints. Everything else is chocolate-coated trash. Okay, fine, not trash, but not something you’d eat until you’ve been strong-armed by six-year-olds trying to build their entrepreneurial skills.
And yet that does not stop the Girl Scouts from pushing new and different flavors. They have just announced that a Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie will be available in select areas during the 2019 cookie season. As the name makes blatantly obvious, the cookies feature rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and a hint of sea salt. So basically Samoas without the coconut or the pesky gluten. This is the second gluten-free cookie the Girl Scouts have unveiled, the other being Toffee Tastic.
Anyway, the last time the Girl Scouts added a new flavor was back in 2016 when they released S’more cookies for those times when you can’t build a campfire to roast your own marshmallows. This new cookie sounds marginally better since it has a sweet-savory thing going for it, and if you’re accosted by adorable business-minded six-year-olds, who knows what might happen.
That said, the Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie has one thing going against it—it’s not Thin Mint.
