The Girl Scouts just revealed a new reason to look forward to the return of cookie season. As USA Today reports, Girl Scout S’mores cookies will be the latest product added to their lineup of treats.

The announcement coincides with National S’mores Day (which is celebrated today, August 10). As any past or current Girl Scout knows, there’s more than one way to make a perfect s’more. The new Girl Scout cookie takes the classic flavors of the summertime staple and bakes them into two tasty packages: According to a press release, buyers will choose between a “crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating” and “a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallowy filling." No campfire required.

The launch of the new cookie in early 2017 will come just in time for another event: the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scout cookie program. In the meantime, Girl Scout councils around the country will be celebrating National S’mores Day and the announcement by making s’mores the old-fashioned way.
