Meet the Latest Lemony Girl Scout Cookie

Introducing 'Savannah Smiles'


It's Girl Scout cookie season, and although Thin Mints may always be the most popular of them all, the organization has released their newest cookie: Savannah Smiles.

The cookie is named after Savannah, Ga., where founder Juliette Gordon Low started the organization. According to the web site, a Savannah Smile is a "lemon wedge cookie... cool and crisp, with just the right number of lemon chips to deliver tiny bursts of happiness."

According to the Washington Post, this is the third lemon cookie from the Girl Scouts. In 2010, there were the Lemon Chalet Creme cookies, which were recalled for a foul smell and taste. In 2006, a shortbread cookie with a lemon glaze (Lemonades) was introduced; they are still available.

And if you're craving some more Girl Scout cookies but don't know where to find them, try making your own Thin Mints at home.
