In what’s undoubtedly the best food-related news since Patti LaBelle started selling her sweet potato pies at Wal-mart, the Girl Scouts of the USA are now peddling baking mixes for when you’re craving Thin Mints at three in the morning and cookie season is still a million days away.
The Girl Scouts have partnered up with the Pillsbury Doughboy to release a brand-new line of baking mixes inspired by the cookie pushers’ famous treats. Head on down to your local grocery store right now and you’ll find boxes of Thin Mints cupcake and brownie mixes, as well as Caramel and Coconut cupcake and blondie mixes for the low price of $3.30 a pop. Pretty good pricing considering actual Girl Scout cookies now cost as much as $5 a box.
“We are very pleased about our licensing relationship with Girl Scouts of the USA, as our brands share a similar personality of happiness and fun — a common characteristic of bringing people together,” said Maribeth Burns, spokeswoman for The J.M. Smucker Company, in a press release. “We hope these fan-favorite flavors encourage baking amongst friends and family alike.”
Is it still technically “baking” if you eat the batter before putting it in the oven? Asking for a friend.
