Girl Scouts Celebrate 100th Anniversary With New Cookie
Girl Scout cookies – are you kidding? I can’t say no when those sweet girls come a knocking on my door. This year The Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th anniversary with a new cookie – Savannah Smiles. The cookie is named in honor of the Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low, who is from Georgia. The other half of the name is attributed to the cookie’s half-moon shape, meant to represent a lemon wedge and “Brownie Smile.”
Founded in March of 1912, the Girl Scouts have 3.2 million members. The Girl Scouts organization empower girls through community projects, sports skill-building, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardship. Girl scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential, to learn respect for others, and to make good life decisions.
The new 100th anniversary cookie, Savannah Smiles, is a delicious crunchy lemon shortbread cookie with a light lemon flavor and sugar dusting. YUMMY!
So when the order form gets passed around the office or the knock comes at your door, support those Girl Scouts and give the Savannah Smiles a try.
Happy 100th anniversary Girl Scouts, keep up the good work!
