Great news! Now, when a charming Girl Scout is at your door during that special cookie time of year, you can ignore her just like you ignore everyone else who comes a-knocking. That's because Pillsbury has just released a new line of Girl Scout cookie-flavored baking mixes that you can bake in your very own home, no child salesperson required.
OK, so technically these mixes aren't for making Girl Scout cookies; they're for making other treats that have Girl Scout cookie-inspired flavors. Specifically, for Thin Mints and Samoas/Caramel deLites. So when your spouse asks you to make Thin Mint cupcakes for their birthday, you can now just buy a box mix instead of getting a recipe off of some insufferable food blog.
Really, it's good news that you can't make the cookies yourself (well, unless you get a copycat recipe from the aforementioned insufferable food blog). After all, Girl Scout cookie sales are a funding source for an important organization. But, at the very least, the Pillsbury mixes can help when you've eaten through your entire Girl Scout cookie stash in one week and still need to get that sweet, sweet fix for the rest of the year.
