January marks a special time for baked goods enthusiasts, as it's the start of Girl Scout cookie season. In 2017, fans of Thin Mints and Samoas will be able to enjoy their favorite treats for breakfast as well as dessert. A new line of cereal from General Mills will feature the classic Girl Scout cookie flavors, Thrillist reports.
The announcement was made last week after the Instagram account Candy Hunting posted two stock photos from the cereal line, showing Thin Mint and Caramel Crunch (or Samoas or Caramel DeLites, depending on where you live) varieties. General Mills confirmed to Thrillist that the cereal is indeed the real thing, and that Girl Scout cookie devotees can expect to see boxes on shelves in January.
The Girl Scouts of America have collaborated with major food brands in the past: In 2012 they launched a line of Nestle Crunch candy bars and before that they teamed up with Edy’s (or Dreyer's in other parts of the country) to create a Girl Scout cookie-flavored line of ice cream. Fans who prefer to consume their cookies in cookie form can look forward to the return of the classic treats in 2017, as well as a new s’mores-flavored addition to the lineup.
