Just what America needs: year-round access to Girl Scouts’ tasty baked goods.

Pillsbury recently announced a new line of baking mixes in Girl Scout Cookie flavors such as Thin Mint. The mixes are the result of a licensing agreement between Pillsbury and Girl Scouts of the USA.

As Pillsbury puts it:

Now lovers of Girl Scout Cookie flavors can recreate the crave-worthy flavors at home in the form of brownies, blondies and cupcakes with the ease of a convenient Pillsbury Girl Scout Cookie Flavored Baking Mix.

The product line, available at grocery stores nationwide, currently includes:

  • Girl Scouts Thin Mints Flavored Brownie Mix
  • Girl Scouts Thin Mints Flavored Cupcake Mix
  • Girl Scouts Caramel & Coconut Flavored Blondie Mix
  • Girl Scouts Caramel & Coconut Flavored Cupcake Mix

With up to 37 grams of sugar per serving — for Thin Mint cupcakes — these products might mean bad news for your diet.

But with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $3.29 per box, they’re arguably good news for your wallet. They will likely cost less than Girl Scout Cookies — which now sell for $4 or $5 per box in some regions, CNBC reported at the start of the latest cookie-selling season.
