Each year, St. Mary's girls excitedly celebrate the moment when Girl Scout cookies are finally around. But now, General Mills has announced that they are releasing Girl Scout inspired cereal, meaning the famous Girl Scout tastes will be in stores all year round. How do St. Mary's girls feel about this revolutionary cereal? Find out here.
General Mills, the food company behind Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Cascadian Farms, and Haagen-Dazs recently announced their brilliant or, as some St. Mary’s girls would argue, unremarkable idea of releasing Girl Scout cookie cereal. While this idea sounds delicious, a few St. Mary’s girls are just not buying it. Gabriella Couloubaritsis (9), girl scout from SK until 7th grade claims, “I just want the cookies. I don’t want it as a cereal!”Kate Stukenborg (9) is conflicted on the matter. “Honestly, I think I would really enjoy Girl Scout cookie breakfast cereal as more of a dessert instead of an actual cereal. I feel like some people will eat it as a cereal. It seems really unhealthy, but also appetizing.”
The cereal is scheduled to be released early next year, and as of now, there are two flavors: Caramel Crunch and Thin Mints, inspired by the traditional Samoa and Thin Mint cookies respectively. The cereals are limited edition, so get ready to stock up, or don’t, in 2017.
