It’s everyone’s favorite time of year again, when the green vests and badges have re-emerged. But, this time with an all new flavor that even gluten-free lovers can enjoy.

You know what they say: new year, new you—or better yet, new Girl Scout cookie.

According to the NY Post, Caramel Chocolate Chip has been welcomed as a new flavor into the Girl Scout cookie family, making it their first new cookie presented in two years. It is also the second addition to the Girl Scouts’ gluten-free options being offered alongside Toffee-Tastic that was introduced back in 2015.

Never fear, those who prefer uniformity, this doesn’t mean complete change–the Scouts will still be continuing to offer all your favorite classics like S’mores, Thin Mints, and Samoas.

If you’re having trouble finding your cookies, you can now track them down by downloading the official Cookie Finder app to locate an in-person seller. Don’t feel like leaving the house? That’s okay, because in select areas, orders can be placed via online from local chapters.

To offset higher production costs, Girl Scouts are selling the gluten-free options just $1.50 more than their usual set price of $3.50, coming-in at $5.00. Approximately 1.8 million Girl Scouts remain on cookie-selling duty, making prices vary by city and state and ultimately determined by local troop councils.

A national representative told Moneyish, The Girl Scouts of the USA program retails around 200 million boxes of cookies per year. That equates to almost $800 million every January-April!

According to Statista, crafting the sweet new delight, Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie, to cater to gluten-free consumers couldn’t have arrived at a better time, as the gluten-free market is projected to be valued at $7.59 billion by next year.

The Girl Scouts of the USA program has been billed as a “powerful entrepreneurship incubator for the next generation of female leaders” as they put their earnings toward troop support including outdoor adventure, travel, and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming.

Turns out that the girls are just as sweet as the product they sell; according to GirlScouts.org, a large number invest money toward impactful community projects in their own hometowns ranging from working with local and state legislators to change laws, to supporting animal shelters and food banks. All proceeds remain local, helping you to invest in the future of female leadership and give-back to your community with the same flick of the switch.

How sweet. Read more on the NY Post here.
