CHICAGO, May 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A favorite summertime treat is about to get even sweeter. Keebler teamed up with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to introduce the brand's first-ever flavored fudge-dipped ice cream cone: Keebler Girl Scout Thin Mints Dipped Cones. The cones feature custom dark chocolate and the same peppermint oil used in Girl Scout Thin Mints to deliver that beloved Thin Mints flavor.
Keebler is always looking for new ways to innovate and collaborating with Girl Scouts provided an opportunity to deliver the Girl Scout Cookie flavor to ice cream cone lovers in a new way.
"With the help of Girl Scouts and a little magic from the Keebler Elves, we're able to bring a delicious Girl Scout Cookie flavor to summertime," said Brian Lutz, Senior Brand Manager, Keebler Cones.
Keebler Girl Scout Thin Mints Dipped Cones are now available in retailers nationwide, and a 12-pack of cones can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $3.69. The packaging carries the Thin Mints signature Girl Scout Green color and the Girl Scout Trefoil.
Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place; and with millions of members, volunteers, and alums, the organization is proven to foster a lifetime of leadership and success. GSUSA's licensing program royalties fund valuable leadership programming for girls in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); outdoor adventure; entrepreneurship; and many other areas vital to girls' learning and confidence-building.
