It’s the start of a new year and you know what that means… Girl Scout Cookies season is upon us!
There’s a new Girl Scouts cookie making its way to your doorstep: Savannah Smiles.
The lemon-flavored, powdered sugar dusted confection will symbolize the the organization’s 100th year in service and sweetness.
The name of the new cookie — was inspired by Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the iconic troupes in Savannah, Ga, according to the International Business Times.
The Girl Scouts had been using cookies as a way to support their troupes since 1917.
Low’s Savannah home has become a tourist attraction for Girl Scouts and those who love them.
“In the time-worn rooms, each girl considers how, 100 years later, Juliette Low’s story encourages her to dream big and do great things with her life,” said a spokesperson for Little Brownie Bakers, the company that makes Girl Scouts cookies. “That’s why we are so proud to offer this special cookie that will delight customers and remind girls of their rich heritage and unlimited future.”
