Girl Scout Cookie-inspired yogurt is here
Do you skip with joy at the mere thought of clearing out your freezer to make room for some delicious mint cookies? Or, do you have strong opinions on the naming of a certain caramel coconut cookie?
If so, then you are clearly a Girl Scout Cookie fanatic and we have some exciting news for you.
Today, Yoplait is announcing Girl Scout Cookie-inspired yogurt.
Beginning this month, Girl Scout Cookie fans can enjoy Yoplait yogurt with new varieties inspired by the three most popular Girl Scout Cookie flavors. The introduction of Yoplait Whips! Girl Scouts Thin Mints, Yoplait Whips! Girl Scouts Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Yoplait Original Girl Scouts Caramel Coconut provides a welcome new snack as families look forward to supporting the next generation of girl entrepreneurs this upcoming Girl Scout Cookie Season.
“Yoplait’s Girl Scout Cookie-inspired yogurts are smooth and creamy with an instantly recognizable cookie taste,” says Doug Martin, business unit director, Yoplait. “Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) does extraordinary things for girls, teaching them valuable life and business skills through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, which is why we are honored to work with the organization.”
“Girl Scouts of the USA is excited about its relationship with Yoplait to create yogurts inspired by three of the beloved Girl Scout Cookie flavors,” says Barry Horowitz, GSUSA chief revenue officer. “Beyond the delicious flavor, the yogurts will also remind consumers everywhere of the power of Girl Scout Cookies. The cookie program is the largest entrepreneurial training program for girls in the world, and we are pleased Yoplait is working with us to share the message about the program and the impact of Girl Scouts with even more families in America.”
The new flavors do not contain high fructose corn syrup, are made with live and active cultures, and are gluten free. The Yoplait Whips! Thin Mints and Yoplait Whips! Peanut Butter Chocolate flavors will each be available in four-ounce cups, and the Caramel Coconut flavor will be available in six-ounce cups.
General Mills is producing these new flavors under a license from Girl Scouts of the USA. Visit GirlScoutCookies.org for more information on the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including when and where Girl Scouts in your area are selling cookies.
