YES, Girl Scout Cookie season is upon us! And YES, there is a new cookie coming into play for 2020.
If you are a fan of the other lemon flavor available in Girl Scout Cookies, don't worry! "Lemonades" are still available. The Girl Scouts are just adding another lemon flavor to the mix, called "Lemon-Ups."
According to the official Girl Scouts website, Lemon-Ups are only available in "select areas" at the moment, and their description reads:
"When you purchase a box of our crispy, lemon cookies baked with motivational messages inspired by bold Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneurs, you're helping a girl learn money management. She handles money, keeps records, even tracks orders—activities that are essential to running a successful business."
The cookies on the website have messages like "I'm a leader" and "I'm a go getter" - and they're described as "crispy lemon cookies baked with inspiring messages to lift your spirits."
Consider my spirits lifted any time I get my hands on a Girl Scout Cookie in general... though I do my best to avoid overindulging.
The reason that the cookie won't be available in every market has to do with the fact that throughout the country, different companies are in charge of the actual baking and distributing of cookies... so, they're just not always made available country-wide!
As for why another lemon cookie was introduced this year?
Stewart Goodbody, senior director of communications and external affairs at Girl Scouts of the USA, told TODAY:
"GSUSA works closely with its licensed bakers to keep our Girl Scout Cookie selection mouth-wateringly top-notch, which means bringing new cookies into the mix periodically based on sales, flavor trends, and consumer preferences... We wanted to keep the same lemon flavor consumers know and love but introduce a new take on it, complete with messages inspired by Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneurs!"
Sounds good to me! I'm hoping I can get my hands on some of these to try them!
What's your all-time favorite Girl Scout Cookie? I am still partial to Thin Mints and Caramel Delights!
