Knock-Knock! Who's There? Girl Scouts! Cookie Season Is Back With Two New Flavors
So, you're probably well into your New Year's resolution of giving up sweets or eating healthier. After the past few months of indulging in Christmas cookies, holiday dinners and endless amounts of booze, the last thing you need is more sugary food. Unfortunately, you're going to have to put that diet on hold for a bit, because it's Girl Scout cookie season. And we all know how hard it is to resist buying a box of Caramel deLites, peanut butter sandwiches or Thin Mints.

Beginning Saturday, January 11, Girl Scouts will be knocking on your doors to sell you a box...or five...of their cookies. New cookies have been added to the lineup, and this year the newcomers are a bit healthier than the traditional selections.
The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is selling these two new cookies: gluten-free chocolate chip shortbread and cranberry citrus crisps. Customers requested that the organization add a gluten-free cookie to the lineup, so it answered with bite-size gluten-free shortbread cookies with chocolate chips. Each of these new cookies is free of artificial flavors, colors, high fructose corn syrup, palm oil and hydrogenated oils.
As one of the largest Girl Scouts councils in the nation, the GSSJC is one of 20 selling these two new flavors as a test. Both cost $5 per box, in contrast to the regular cookies, which cost $4 per box.
To help you decide if these two new flavors are worth the extra dollar, we have taste-tested these creations to see if they're as good as the originals we have all come to know and love.
