A New Salty-Sweet Cookie From Girl Scouts Is Coming Next Year

Plus, it's gluten-free!

If you eagerly await Girl Scout cookie season (doesn’t everyone?), here is one more reason to get excited next year: The Girl Scouts are launching a brand-new flavor during the cookie sale season in 2019. In addition to all your traditional favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas, you will now be able to buy caramel chocolate chip cookies. The new cookie has caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and a hint of sea salt — making it perfect for satisfying a craving for a sweet-and-salty flavor combination.

There’s even better news for people with dietary restrictions: The new cookie is another gluten-free offering from the Girl Scouts, along with the Toffee-tastic cookie, which will also be available for sale in 2019.

The gluten-free cookie varieties will be available in select Girl Scout council areas for as long as supplies last. The gluten-free cookies may be priced higher than the other flavors due to their higher cost of production.

Caramel chocolate chip is first new flavor introduction since two s’mores flavors launched in 2016. The new cookie sounds like the perfect addition to the lineup! Use this online tool to find out when and where you can purchase Girl Scout cookies in your area.

“The Girl Scout Cookie Program plays a powerful role in developing financially savvy girl leaders,” Girls Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a press release. “Girl entrepreneurs learn valuable interpersonal and business skills via the cookie program that help them become successful in their future careers, no matter what path they choose.”

Of course, Girl Scout cookies are delicious all on their own, but there are a number of recipes that incorporate Girl Scout cookies, including cake pops! For adult cookie lovers, there’s even a guide for which alcoholic beverage pairs best with each cookie flavor.
