The Girl Scouts of America are constantly evolving, especially when it comes to their cookies. A new partnership may turn out to be their most savvy move of all.

There have been some key dates in the evolution of the famous Girl Scouts cookies. In 1917, the first sales began with an individual troop in Oklahoma. In the 1930s, marketing procedures started to grow and the Scouts officially licensed their cookies to companies like Keebler.

The 1950s brought new recipes for "Thin Mints" and "Savannahs" and other signature lines. In 2005, the Scouts eliminated trans fats from all their cookies, in order to make them healthier.

And now, in 2018 they're teaming with Dunkin' Donuts to produce three new coffees--Thin Mint, Coconut Caramel, and Peanut Butter--based on popular cookie flavors. The flavors will be available at Dunkin' locations from February 26th through May.

The partnership includes another initiatative, according to a press release from Dunkin' Donuts:

To help power amazing experiences for girls, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees at select locations across the country will open their doors to cookie entrepreneurs, inviting local troops to sell Girl Scout Cookies at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants."

So, you'll see the Scouts at Dunkin' locations in Central New York and all over on weekends in February and March. Here's more info on the Scouts and their cookies and here's more info on the latest Dunkin' partnership.
