Girl Scout Cookies Get a New Flavor: Savannah Smiles

Southern charm and powdered sugar may be gaining entry to the time-tested pantheon of color-coded cookies. Marking the 100th   anniversary of their organization, the Girl Scouts have announced a new cookie: the Savannah Smiles. It’s a crumbly lemon confection dusted with sugar and inspired by the home of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low. But can it hang with the hits like the Thin Mint and the Samoa? We’ll know after the hoards of Girl Scouts and parents start sending cookie orders to the country’s mothership bakeries that produce them. Let’s hope the Smiles don’t go the way of 2010’s Lemon Chalet Crème, which was discontinued after reports it smelled and tasted terrible.
