Girl Scouts' Chocolatey New Cookie Is Unlike Any Other

Girl Scout cookie season may be months away, but the Girl Scouts of the USA has good news for those who're already counting down the days until they can get their hands on a box of Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties. The nationwide organization recently announced a new cookie will be added to the 2021 to 2022 sweets catalog, and its name and flavor have patrons turning heads. Sticking with the uniquely signature out-the-box cookie name tradition, the new chocolatey cookie, which boasts a caramel-flavored center, is called Adventurefuls.

Patrons will have to wait until the new year to try the new flavor. Adventurefuls will start to become available in 2022, according to Food & Wine, which notes that Girl Scout cookie season may differ across locations. Eager fans can continue to check the Girl Scout Cookie website to see when cookie season officially kicks off in their hometown. Adventurefuls is the fourth cookie flavor to be added to the Girl Scouts' lineup in recent years. Cookie fanatics will remember the addition of Toast-Yay!, the French toast-flavored cookie that debuted earlier this year. Over the years, the Scouts have also offered such flavors as Lemon-Ups and gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip.

Adventurefuls were named after the scouts.

The Adventurefuls' flavor description is enough to make your stomach grumble and mouth water. According to the Girl Scouts of the USA, customers can look forward to biting into "an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt." The name "Adventurefuls” is a nod to all the "amazing adventures" Girl Scouts embark on throughout the year. In case any returning customers were concerned the new cookie would be taking the place of one of the classics, the organization said it will not be the case. People can expect to see fan favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas back next cookie season.

While Adventurefuls won't be available to the public until 2022, Food & Wine news editor Adam Campbell-Schmitt was invited to try the new cookie ahead of its release date. Based on his remarks, we think Adventurefuls could end up giving Thin Mints a run for its money; they're that delicious. Campbell-Schmitt said he could definitely taste the brownie-inspired flavor. In Food & Wine's words, he found that "its sweetness [was] well-tempered by the salty caramel note." "Is it a taste 'adventure'? I would say, for Girl Scout Cookies, it's a road less traveled for sure," he said. To seal the deal even further, the magazine described Adventurefuls as a Girl Scout cookie lover's heaven with "the texture of Thin Mints meets the filled format of Tagalongs and the striped, gooiness of Samoas."
