Girl Scout Cookie lovers rejoice: there’s a new Girl Scout Cookie flavor and you’re going to fall madly and deeply in love with it. Or at the very least, you’ll enjoy a good ol’ nosh.

The 2019 cooking-selling season will find Girl Scouts and cookie lovers thrilled about the newest addition to the standard lineup: the Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie is coming and it basically looks like the salty-sweet heaven you’ve always dreamed of.

So what do you need to know about this new cookie? To start with, it’s gluten-free. If you’re a fan of caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and sea salt, then you’re in luck. This cookie is a gloriously tasty combo of all three.

Not only is this new cookie a taste treat, but it also helps the scouts who sell it. GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a press release, “Girl entrepreneurs learn valuable interpersonal and business skills via the cookie program that help them become successful in their future careers, no matter what path they choose.” And she should know.

Acevedo, a former Girl Scout herself, went on to add, “My experience selling Girl Scout cookies taught me to be creative, enterprising, and persistent, and helped me to build self-confidence and resilience.”

So the question remains: will the Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie become your new favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor next year? And, more importantly…do we have to wait until next year, because we want a box (or four) of these um, now.
