Girl Scout Cookie-Inspired Gum Is Giving Us Life Until Thin Mints Return

As if we need another reason to be excited about 2016 ending, we just got some major news that almost makes us want to fast-forward though the holidays. While 2017 will bring us one step closer to Girl Scout cookie season, not everyone will be able to get their hands on a box right away. But the Girl Scouts have got a little something for us to chew on while we wait.

Project 7 (a unique sweets company that donates some of its proceeds to charity) has partnered up with the GSUSA to bring us Girl Scout Cookie-inspired gum. This limited-edition collaboration is gearing up to celebrate the 100th year of the almighty GSUSA's cookie-peddling magic. That's a lot of years filled with Thin Mints, people. The chewing gum will come in two legendary cult-favorite flavors: Girl Scouts Caramel Coconut (Samoas or Caramel deLites) and Thin Mints (screaming).

So if you aren't still surviving off of 2016's loot — boxes definitely don't last for nearly that long in our freezers — don't worry. Come January 1, 2017 you'll be able to purchase Girl Scout-inspired gum online (or head to any nearby Target location). Now, we just have to figure out how to make it last until our cookies arrive.
