Happy One Hundred Years, Girl Scouts!

6 Jan
 The Girl Scouts turn 100 this year – and they’ve got a special cookie out to celebrate.
While it’s true that they are not a local dining spot or cooking-related news story (the main themes of this blog), the girl scouts have been a big part of communities big and small all across the country for a century now – and we think that deserves a congrats!
The following is from Foodista.com – check out the article on their site too!

Savannah Smiles are the New Girl Scout Cookie

To celebrate their 100 year anniversary, the Girl Scouts are releasing Savannah Smiles, a lemon cookie inspired by the organization’s founder Juliette Gordon Low.  According to the website “…these bite-sized, lemon-wedge cookies dusted in powdered sugar and bursting with lemon flavor. Enjoy these delightful treats, remember where Girl Scouts began …and smile…we are so proud to offer this special cookie that will delight customers and remind girls of their rich heritage and unlimited future.”  Sounds like these cookies are staking great claims of dreaming and happiness but do they taste good? I suppose the only way to find out is to buy a box.  To find out where girl scout cookies are sold near you, click here.
