Girl Scout cookie lovers accustomed to seeing items like peanut butter, chocolate, coconut and more chocolate on the ingredient list may do a double take when they see the newest cookie on the order form.
Alongside Tagalongs, Thin Mints and Samoas in this year’s Girl Scout cookie repertoire are Mango Crèmes, which at first glance looks like a nice addition to their repertoire, a crispy cookie featuring mango, coconut, vanilla and Nutrifusion™? Yes, Girl Scout cookies have been vitamin-punched!
For the 2013 season, the Girl Scouts have introduced Mango Creme cookies. The cookie sandwich features a mango-flavored filling amongst vanilla and coconut cookie shells. The full title of the cookie is actually “Mango Cremes With Nutrifusion™.”
The Mango Cremes cookies with NutriFusion™ from ABC Bakers contain:
• 15% RDI (reference daily intake) of Vitamin B1 per serving
• 5% RDI of Vitamins A, C, D, E, and B6 per serving
• Zero grams trans fats per serving
• No hydrogenated oils
• No preservatives
ABC Bakers said in a statement the decision to add the more nutrition-friendly ingredient was “initiated by consumers wanting to eat great-tasting cookies that also have health benefits.” NutriFusion describes its product as one that can, “significantly increase the nutritional profile, and therefore the marketability, of food, beverage and snack products.”
The cookies, like all other Girl Scout cookies, are produced for a limited time once a year and are on sale now.
