This year when your local Girl Scouts troop is out selling cookies there will be an additional variety for purchase. In what seems like a long time coming, the classic summertime treat S’mores has been unveiled as the newest flavor offered in cookie form. Because the expected demand for this new flavor is around two million boxes of cookies, the Girl Scouts enlisted two manufacturers to meet demand. The two varieties are similar, yet slightly different; one is described as “crispy,” while the other is “crunchy.” While the cookies are mostly the same, which variety you can purchase will depend on your location. Regional Girl Scouts councils have existing contracts with manufacturers and this decides which variety will be available to you.
