Girl Scout Cookie Cereal 2017: Maybe the Most Delicious Thing to Ever Happen to Breakfast


We wait for it all year long, tingling with anticipation. No, it’s not football season; we’re not talking about sweater weather either. We’re talking about Girl Scout cookie season. It takes forever to arrive and then–in a flash–all your cookies are just leftover crumbs.

But come January, the box you’ll be ripping into like it’s Christmas morning won’t be a standard box of Thin Mints; it will be Girl Scout cookie flavored cereal! General Mills just recently announced that the cereal we never knew we needed will be available in January 2017–so much for those plans to slim down in the new year!

But don’t get too excited over this delicious news just yet. The company is staying pretty mum about the details except to say that the cereal will come in two flavors–Thin Mint and Caramel Crunch (modeled after Samoas aka Caramel deLites)–and that they’ll only be available for a limited time.

We’ll keep you updated with more details as General Mills releases them, but for now the breakfast forecasts are looking darn tasty. Just get ready to stock up as soon as they hit shelves!
