Beer Festivals Only Get Better with Girl Scout Cookies

Pairing craft beer with Girl Scout cookies isn’t a new concept. We’ve covered the topic and so have plenty of other publications. Even small-scale Girl Scout cookie and beer pairing events don’t seem so strange: A group of people sitting around matching sweets with beer styles certainly makes for a nice conversation starter. But full-on Girl Scout cookie and beer festivals?

The Girl Scouts' Latest Cookie Flavor Is Here to Sweeten the New Year

You know the drill: If you love them, you’ll actually want to engage in conversations about your coworkers’ children for a change; if you hate them, you may want to start scoping out a back entrance to the grocery store. Yes, Girl Scout Cookie season officially begins this week.

The Girl Scouts Add a New Salty-Sweet Cookie Flavor to the Lineup

For the first time in two years, the Girl Scouts are unveiling a new cookie.

In addition to their tried-and-true flavors, Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies will be available starting in 2019 when the selling season kicks off. The chewy cookie features rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and a hint of sea salt — and is certified gluten-free.

These Girl Scouts Are Deciding the Future of Your Favorite Treats

The Girl Scouts headquarters, located in midtown New York City, is something of a shrine to the organization’s most famous product—the cookie. Lunch boxes, keychains, mugs, and magnets displayed near the entry are covered in Thin Mints and Samoas; S’mores and Do-si-dos adorn patches, stickers, pencil pouches, and pins. It’s appropriate decor for the day’s big event: the annual meeting of New York City Cookie Executive Committee, a group of the top-selling Scouts who, despite not yet being old enough to vote, decide everything from logistics to product marketing.

Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs Yogurt Lets You Get Your Cookie Fix All Year Long

There are few annual traditions as beloved and delicious as Girl Scout Cookie season. But if it happens to be that time of year when the enterprising young women donning their badges and doling out crave-able cookies aren’t parked at a table in front of your local supermarket, fear not—there’s a new way to get your Girl Scout Cookie fix in the form of… yogurt.

These Girl Scout Cookie Doughnuts Sound Too Good to Be True

Be still, our Girl Scout cookie and doughnut-loving hearts.

If news around the world has left you feeling hopeless, cynical and downright depressed these days, Girl Scout cookie-doughnut hybrids have a 100 percent chance of turning any frown upside down. Don't believe us? Just ask our stomachs.


This Grocery Store Was Doing Something It Shouldn't Have with Girl Scout Cookies

Typically, you can find Girl Scout cookies out front of grocery stores where a bunch of chipper young ladies try to convince you to buy their wares instead of the cookies inside. When you think of it that way, maybe the recent revelation that South Carolina discount chain Deal Mart was selling boxes of Girl Scout cookies inside its own stores at a bargain price could be seen as a supermarket finally giving the Girl Scouts a taste of their own medicine. Needless to say, the Girl Scouts of the USA don’t see it that way.

The Girl Scouts Made So Much Money Off Oscar Celebrities Yesterday

This is the time of year that parents begin hounding their work colleagues, trying to guilt them into an extra (19th) box of Thin Mints.

Chris Rock, not only the host of this year’s Academy Awards, but a father to a Girl Scout himself, recruited a team of local Los Angeles Girl Scouts to sell cookies to the seated crowd midway through the awards proceedings. As the show tends to run rather long, the sugar break was definitely appreciated.

Gordon Ramsay Tries Girl Scout Cookies for the First Time And It Doesn't Go Well

Maybe Gordon Ramsay is a snobby, shouty, insulting jerk. Or maybe it’s possible that the celebrated chef from across the pond just dropped some serious truth when he tried Girl Scout cookies for the first time on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In Ramsay’s defense, his first observation was rather astute. Girl Scout cookies, especially Tagalongs, aren’t particularly visually appealing. Saying they look like “dog biscuits” might be a bit rough, but no one is handing out Michelin stars for covering a cookie and a smear of peanut butter in a blob of chocolate.

Think You Have a Good Use for Thin Mints? The Girl Scouts Want Your Ideas

For most people, eating Girl Scout cookies consists of pulling Thin Mint after Thin Mint from their plastic sleeve while quietly telling yourself “I swear this will be the last one.” But for the second year in a row, the Girl Scouts of the USA are asking you to think about your cookie habit in a more constructive way.
