The new Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookie might just convince me to buy Girl Scout Cookies instead of having to awkwardly explain to a 10-year-old girl why I’m not buying them, which usually involves me saying too much, like telling the little girl that my rejection will prepare her for her future boyfriend breakups and explaining that I don’t have a checkbook on me because this is the 21st century and the only person who writes checks is my grandma when she sends me money on my birthday.
The newest Girl Scout treat is a lemon-flavored cookie that’s dusted with powdered sugar. The cookie’s shape makes it look like a smile, hence the name, Savannah Smiles. Of course, if you flip the cookie upside down, it turns into a frown, which I guess if you wanted to give it a name, you could call it Fayetteville Frowns.
Savannah Smiles were added to the Girl Scout cookie line up to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts, which began in Savannah, Georgia by Juliette Gordon Low.
Booyah! History lesson! You’ll thank me when it comes up in Jeopardy.
