We taste tested the new Adventureful Girl Scout cookie
It's the time of the year to befriend a Girl Scout in your neighborhood.
That's right: Cookie deliveries start Sunday, and sales run through March 13.
What's new: This year, the new cookie is called the Adventureful, a brownie-inspired bite with caramel-flavored creme on top.
- "It's really good," Amelia Grealy, an 11-year-old cadet from Parker, tells us. "It's actually my second-favorite cookie, almost beating Samoas for first."
Of note: She's trying to sell 1,000 boxes to cover the cost of summer camp and a service project to make the intersection in front of her school safer.
Our taste test: Amelia said she likes it because "not really any other cookies have taken brownie into the cookie," and we couldn't agree more.
- The baker's chocolate notes are nostalgic in their simplicity, and the hint of caramel sweetness seals the deal.
- Adventurefuls don't top our favorites (Samoas), but John finished the box in less than 24 hours and refused to share with it his Axios colleagues.
His thought bubble: Because it's a thing, we're happy to offer a beer pairing. John suggests pairing with the Adventurful with a crisp dark lager to accentuate the chocolate tones or a big pastry stout with caramel or vanilla.
