We can hardly believe it, but the best and most magical time of the year is already upon us, and it's only the first week of 2017!
You guessed it, folks -- Girl Scout season is officially here, and they're getting ready to celebrate an impressive 100 years of selling cookies!
Yes, really. The Girl Scouts have been around for a century, as Time reports, and their first sales date all the way back to 1917 when the troops were selling delicious, addictive cookies out of their high school cafeterias.
Obviously, the Girl Scouts have gained massive popularity since then, and 100 years after their first sales, they now generate almost $800 million in sales annually -- no small feat!
This year, the Girl Scouts will be debuting their newest and delicious sounding s'mores variety of cookie, and it comes in two separate iterations.
Time reports that the first type of s'mores cookie is a square graham cookie topped first with a layer of that classic creme icing, and then enrobed in a lush chocolatey coating.
Its counterpart has a graham cracker exterior instead, and hosts a gooey and marshmallowy filling of creme and chocolate.
If that doesn't sound tempting enough, here's yet another compassionate and humanitarian reason to support the s'mores flavor of Girl Scouts this year -- the cookie is vegan!
Will you be celebrating the Girl Scouts' 100 year anniversary and enjoying a vegan s'mores cookie this year?
