Do you like Girl Scout cookies but want to save your money for your daily coffee boost? Does it pain you in the long hours of the night why there isn’t some sort of Girl Scout cookie-flavored coffee? Well, your prayers have been answered, as Dunkin’ Donuts has unveiled three new coffee flavors inspired by the popular cookies!
What flavors will there be?
The three new flavors are Thin Mint, Coconut Caramel and Peanut Butter Cookie. The three flavors will come in hot or iced coffee, lattes, macchiatos, frozen coffees and frozen chocolate. Thanks to that last one, even children will get to enjoy the new flavors. It would be kind of weird if Girl Scouts were not allowed to enjoy what they peddle. Unless, of course, you let your kids drink coffee. Who am I to judge?

All three flavors will be available Monday, February 26. Reflecting a bigger partnership with the Girl Scouts, local troops will be invited to see their cookies are stores throughout the country, on weekends from February 24th through March 18th.
What is the company saying?
According to a Dunkin’ Donuts press release, the announcement was made during a Facebook Live event, made from Savannah, Georgia, said to be “the birthplace of Girl Scouts of the USA.”
Claiming that the promotion was inspired in part by National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, which falls between February 23 and 25 in 2018, the company praised the Girl Scouts in the following message:
“Girl Scouts have been selling cookies for more than a century, unlocking their G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ potential by building essential entrepreneurial and business skills imperative to leadership and future success. Over one million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, and 100% of the net revenue from cookie sales benefits the girls and their local council.”
“Councils depend on cookie earnings to run their programming, which supports incredible experiences for girls, and girls decide how to invest their troop’s portion of the earnings in impactful community projects and personal enrichment opportunities.”
Barry Horowitz, GSUSA Chief Revenue Officer, also released the following statement:
“GSUSA is pleased to work with Dunkin’ Donuts to showcase the power of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Not only do girls learn important business and entrepreneurial skills, but they put their earnings toward impactful community projects and leadership experiences—so we are grateful to Dunkin’ Donuts for opening up their restaurants around the country to our cookie entrepreneurs!”
