It’s January, and you know what that means, right? Cookies! No, not Christmas cookies. Not tailgating parties — with cookies. We have three words for you: Girl. Scout. Cookies.

 

That’s right. They’re baaaacccckkk!

 

Sales of the delicious treats have begun (delivery and booth sales take place next month) and while you can expect the same great taste of Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, and the like, this year’s cookies come in a new package — the first box redesign since 1999, according to Girl Scouts of the USA.

 

And you’ll have the chance to sample a brand new flavor: Mango Cremes.

 

Described as “Vanilla and coconut cookies filled with a tangy mango-flavored crème enhanced with nutrients derived from fruits,” three cookies will set you back 180 calories and a box will also set you back $3.50.

 

They also contain something called “NutriFusion.” Alrighty. So, what is that, exactly? Well, the Girl Scouts say the mango-flavor filling has “all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries!”

 

Mango Crèmes are also said to contain 15% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin B1, 5 percent RDI of vitamins A, C, D, E, and B6 and no transfats, hydrogenated oils or preservatives, per serving.

 

So, eating a bunch of cookies is actually healthy? God bless you, Girl Scouts. We’ll take a case, please. In the name of good nutrition, of course.

    I just want to point out that not all Girl Scout troops will have the Mango cookies. There are a few different companies that the troops get their cookies from and so depending on which company they use there are variations in what flavors they have. Also, troops sell at different times too. Our girls can’t sell until February 2, we do not have the mango ones, and our box price is $4/box.
