Dunkin’ Donuts Debuts New Girl Scout Cookie Flavored Coffee

Dunkin’ Donuts just dropped the biggest bomb on every Girl Scout’s money pouch.

The global donut empire recently debuted three new flavors for their hot and iced drinks, all inspired by traditional Girl Scout cookie flavors we’ve all come to love.

Instead of seeking out a Girl Scout for some Thin Mints, which already sounds kinda sketchy, stopping by Dunkin’ will satisfy any cravings you might have.

On top of making the dream of gulping Samoas come true, these flavors are added to caffeinated drinks, so a sugar rush will be instantly followed by a caffeine rush, a perfect mixture for the beginning of the day.

Stop speeding through sleeves of those tender cookies and start drowning yourself in a Thin Mint, Coconut Caramel, or Peanut Butter Cookie flavored drink.

Obviously, these are supposed to mock one cookie flavor or another. The Thin Mints flavor unsurprisingly takes the place of the cookie it’s named after, Coconut Caramel could be akin in flavor to Samoas, and Peanut Butter Cookie resembles either the Tagalongs or Do-Si-Dos.

Appropriately, there is no flavor for Trefoils. Nobody really cares about Trefoils.

While these are the only three official Girl Scout flavors on the menu, a new donut being rolled out for March called the Mint Brownie Donut, with minty brownie filling and green frosting on top sprinkled with brownie bites, mocks the classic Thin Mint.

After getting all of these flavors the last thing you will be is thin.

The three new coffee flavors will be available through May, so even if it’s too cold out for those little troops, you have a few months to get the Thin Mint fix you might (will) have.

You Can Buy Girl Scout Cookies On Amazon, But It’s Kinda Sketchy

You can find almost anything on Amazon, so it should come as no surprise that Girl Scout Cookies are on there. Can we trust these cookies though?

Maybe.

The Girl Scouts of the USA don’t work directly with Amazon on cookie sales, so whatever you see on there is being re-sold by someone else, according to NY Mag.

Some of the Amazon cookies are Prime eligible, and seem like they are real boxes of cookies, but according to reviewers, the cookies are often stale, melted, and clearly overpriced, as a box can go for upward of $10, when they usually sell for $4 or $5.

On top of that, you can’t even guarantee their legitimacy:

“We caution against sales of cookies bought online because you don’t really know. They can be expired. They can be from three or four years ago. We can’t guarantee they haven’t been opened or tampered with,” a spokesperson for the Girl Scouts of the USA told NY Mag.

A spokesperson told the magazine that the purpose of the cookies is for the little scouts to interact with people and learn financial skills, while these Amazon sellers are basically depriving them of that experience.

If you’re desperate for cookies during the offseason, you can take a shot, but you’re probably better off just snacking on the Girl Scout Cookie cereal, Nesquik, or Crunch Bars. At least they’re official, and don’t come in the mail tasting stale.

Girl Scout Cookie Cereal Is Finally Gonna Be A Thing

samoas

There’s only three seasons you should care about right now: basketball season, Yeezy season, and Girl Scout cookie season.

The latter is most exciting because our favorite Girl Scout cookies will soon be found inside cereal boxes, according to CBS News.

General Mills, the company behind Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs, confirmed to CBS that they are releasing the line of cereals nationwide in January, but didn’t give out many more details.

Food blogger @candyhunting got their hands on these tantalizing photos of the cereal, saying that the limited edition item will come in Caramel Crunch and Thin Mint flavors.

__________

The two flavors are Girl Scouts’ most popular, and are the natural choice to lead the way in their new cereal aisle endeavor.

Whether it’s Girl Scout Frappuccinos, Girl Scout candy bars, or Girl Scout marijuana strains, we can’t get enough of the classic flavors, and welcome them in any form.

Girl Scouts Will Be Tempting Us With S’mores-Flavored Cookies Now

girl-scouts-smores

 

Anytime the adorable little Girl Scout troopers reveal a new flavor, there’s reason to run to the nearest Trader Joe’s or Kroger and try the new cookies. The Rah-Rah Raisins release in 2015 was pretty fire, and we should expect that same kind of heat from their new S’mores cookies in 2017.

There will be two variations of the S’mores, the first will consist of a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a combination of chocolate and marshmallow filling. The second will have a crispy graham cookie, dipped in crème icing and covered in chocolate.

It’s no coincidence that the announcement came early Wednesday, on National S’mores day, but it sucks that we have to wait until 2017 to get our hands on these. They should have just kept it to themselves because now we’re going to crave Girl Scout Cookies with no outlet to get our fix!

These Weed Samoa Girl Scout Cookies Will Get You BAKED

weed-samoas-cookies

No longer is the divide between Girl Scout Cookies and weed culture a disparate one. Crafty young scouts have found that weed indulgers buy cookies, and it was only a matter of time before someone bridged the gap even further: Weed SAMOAS.

The WatchCut YouTube channel has released a brilliant piece of recipe filmmaking that shows how easy it is to make your own marijuana-laced girl scout cookies in the comfort of your own home. The recipe calls for dark chocolate, roasted coconut, caramel, sea salt and canabutter. Hell, even if you don’t plan on making these cookies yourself, the beautifully constructed video will be the most enjoyable minute and forty-five seconds you’ll have on the Internet today:

Tom Hanks Made Fans Buy Girl Scout Cookies Before They Could Get A Picture

Tom Hanks really, really, really, really, really, really likes supporting the Girl Scouts of America.

He ran into a few entrepreneurial young ladies in Los Altos, CA, last Thursday where he was looking to get his son’s vintage typewriter repaired. As an avid collector, he ended up buying two more.

Incognito in a hat and sunglasses, he bought four boxes of cookies from the girls and donated $20 (I would’ve just bought more boxes, but I don’t have an Oscar or a generally pleasant demeanor). As Hanks walked away, they gradually realized who he was, so they asked for a picture.


The Academy Award-winning actor obliged them, but he didn’t stop there.

As passersby noticed his presence and requested photos, Hanks wouldn’t allow them to take one unless they bought some cookies from the Girl Scouts.

Talk about a celebrity endorsement!

Girl Scout Nesquik is Real and on Store Shelves

tmg-slideshow_xl

Girl Scout cookies are like crack, and those little girls can easily leave you broke as you stock up on Thin Mints and Do-si-dos. Naturally, the trademark Girl Scout cookie flavors can and should be incorporated in as many foods as possible. We’ve seen them in coffee creamers and even frozen yogurt, now they’re available in flavored milk form.

Nestle teamed up with the Girl Scouts to make Nesquik On-the-Go flavored milk. They’re not offering the full array of flavors, but are available in Thin Mints and Caramel Coconut (AKA Samoas) flavors.

This isn’t the first time the two have collaborated, as in 2012 Nestle released a series of chocolate Crunch bars with Thin Mint, Samoa and Tagalong flavors. They have been spotted on store shelves and according to the Nesquik site, they’ll only be around for a limited time.

Liquid Gold: Girl Scout Coffee Creamers

coffeemate1

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I could have sworn summer was all about lightening up – shedding clothing layers, eating fresher foods, squeezing lemon into our roots. But it seems the folks at Coffee-mate didn’t quite get the message, since they just unveiled a pair of Girl Scout Cookie-inspired coffee creamer flavors – Thin Mint and Caramel & Coconut (AKA Samoas and/or Caramel Delites) – at least three months after anyone would drink them.

It’s cruel, really. Here we all are, trying our damnedest to fit into bikinis and speedos, suffering night sweats thinking about all the deep fried fair foods we shouldn’t be eating, and they have to torment us with Girl Scout Cookies? It’s no wonder so many Facebook fans have been begging Nestle to create sugar and fat-free versions of these things. We. Can’t. Drink. Them. Or at least we shouldn’t. No, no, we really can’t, we’re on diets. Ugh, okay, we guess a sip wouldn’t hurt. Yes, that’s considered a sip. Don’t judge us, you don’t know our lives!

The new creamers are expected to hit store shelves nationwide soon at $2.69/16 ounces per bottle.
