Girl Scouts release new line of treats you bake at home

ORRVILLE, OH (WCMH) — Girl Scout cookies are certainly tasty, but you can only buy them during certain times of the year.

At least, that’s how it used to be. Thanks to Pillsbury, you can now bake your favorite Girl Scout Cookie flavor all year long.

Pillsbury is teaming up with Girl Scouts of the USA to roll out two new flavored baking mixes. One is the Pillsbury™ Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® flavor. The second is the Caramel & Coconut flavor.

The two mixes allow you to create your favorite Girl Scouts Cookies flavor at home in the form of brownies, blondies and cupcakes.

“This licensing agreement with Pillsbury will bring the flavors of Girl Scout Cookies to new and different treats,” said Barry Horowitz, Chief Revenue Officer, Girl Scouts of the USA. “With Pillsbury™ Girl Scout Cookie™ Flavored Baking Mixes, families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season.

The following flavors will go on sale at grocery stores nationwide at a suggested price of $3.29. That’s not bad since a box of Girl Scout Cookies themselves can run as much as $7:

  • Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Flavored Brownie Mix
  • Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Flavored Cupcake Mix
  • Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Flavored Blondie Mix
  • Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Flavored Cupcake Mix
