This particular flavor has actually been around for a while, but it was previously packaged in the standard beige-colored container. Apparently, the company saw some positive sales numbers of this product and decided to make them more distinct.
Truth be told, there are three Girl Scout flavors to choose from: Samoas, Tagalongs and Thin Mints. But Samoas are the Alpha and Omega of cookies and are, therefore, to be the most feared. I'm going to make a prediction: In three years time, there will be Samoa-flavored coffee at Starbucks.
Then absolutely no one will be safe!
