'Smile,' There's a New Girl Scout Cookie — Taste Test

Make space in your freezer and clear out the shelves in the pantry: It's time to load up on Girl Scout cookie favorites like Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Trefoils. Leave room for a new favorite this year, though, as Savannah Smiles are added to the 2012 Girl Scout Cookie list. The Girl Scouts certainly have lots to smile about this year as they celebrate the organization's 100th anniversary.

The new lemon wedge cookie is fresh and just the perfect size. Covered in powdered sugar and shaped like a smile, you can't help but grin as you pop these cookies into your mouth one by one. The sugar coating can get a bit messy, but there's no shame in licking your fingers clean. With each bite you'll be transported to a cool fall day in Georgia, curled up on a porch swing with a cup of tea and these addictive lemon cookies. Sounds like a mighty fine afternoon to us.

To order cookies, find a local council near you.
