Move over, Thin Mints

There’s a new kid in town. After a lifetime of Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties and Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Girl Scouts’ cookies now include Savannah Smiles, a “crisp, zesty lemon wedge cookie dusted with powdered sugar.” After two daughters of friends stopping selling Girl Scout cookies and moved on up to college age, I stopped buying Girl Scout cookies, but who can walk by a trio of young, earnest girls holding up signs, selling boxes of cookies, making change without stopping and helping them along? Surely not me. This is how I learned of yet another variety — Savannah Smiles. Nice to see Juliet Gordon Low’s hometown make it to the big time. ¬†We love our Daisy Low. Too bad she had such a scoundrel for a husband.

A new Girl Scout cookie!
