Happy National S’mores Day!

s'moresIt’s National S’mores Day, and what better way to celebrate than with some gooey-delicious good news?

Did you know that in its debut last season, Girl Scout S’mores became the most popular cookie flavor to launch in the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies? It’s true! And now the tasty, crispy graham cookie double-dipped in crème icing and finished with a scrumptious chocolatey coating (yum!) is ready for a comeback!

These mouthwatering treats will be available again during the GSOC Cookie Season from January 28 – March 11, 2018!
