The Girl Scouts have teamed up with General Mills to create two cookie-flavored breakfast cereals. Here's the skinny.
If you love Girl Scout Cookies and are a fan of breakfast cereals, listen up: You’ll soon be able to start your day with Girl Scout cereal.
The Instagram account page Candy Hunting was the first to break the sweet news when it posted two pictures: One of a box of Girl Scouts Thin Mints Cereal, inspired by the organization’s most popular cookie flavor; and one of Caramel Crunch Cereal, which appears to be based on the popular Samoas cookie. The cereals are made by General Mills.
This isn’t the first time the immensely popular Girl Scout Cookie flavors have been used to inspire new products. There are already Girl Scout Cookie-flavored coffee creamers, ice cream flavors and granola bars.
This summer, we told you about Pillsbury’s Girl Scout Cookie Flavored Baking Mix, which include a lineup of brownie, cookie and cupcake mixes.
According to Thrillist, General Mills says the new Girl Scout breakfast cereals should be available nationwide in January. The Girl Scouts will mark 100 years of selling cookies in 2017.
