Well if you're looking to stick to your New Years Resolution of losing weight and sticking to a diet... This may not be the best idea for you BUT if you're on a diet that doesn't restrict you too much from cookies, then HELLO GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!
The holidays have already passed, but the best time of the year is only just getting started: Girl Scout cookie season!
Starting Jan. 7, the troops will begin selling boxes of their tasty treats — and they have big news to kick things off. This year, the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) are releasing a new lemon-flavored cookie in addition to their lineup of classic flavors to celebrate young female leaders and entrepreneurs. The new Lemon-Ups are crispy and sweet glazed lemon cookies that feature baked-in messages inspired by the Girl Scout core mission.
Among the eight phrases featured on the cookies are “I am a go-getter” and “I am an innovator.” They will replace the Savannah Smiles flavor and will be available in select Girl Scout council markets while supplies last.
Troops are able to use their cookie earnings to fund interesting experiences, including adventure-packed camping and canoeing, and science, technology and engineering opportunities. The Girl Scout Cookie Program also holds the top spot as the largest financial investment in girls annually in the United States, according to the release.
That is so cool! Not only are we getting delicious cookies but we're also investing in the future of young girls. It's a win-win for us!
