Girl Scout Cookies Cutting Back on a Few Varieties: Report

January 30, 2011 Updated: January 31, 2011

The Girl Scouts of America are cutting back on the types of cookies the scouts will be selling this year, according to an exclusive report in the Wall Street Journal.

Don’t worry because Thin Mints, the Do-Si-Dos, and the Trefoils will still remain. However, Dulce de Leche and Thank U Berry Much won’t be around this year.

The Samoas, otherwise known as the Caramel deLites, and Lemon Chalet Cremes will also be continued, the Journal reported.

The Girl Scouts netted more than $714 million last year due to cookie sales. The organization has been selling cookies for nearly 100 years.

"We're all seeking a little more simplicity," said Amanda Hamaker, who manages product sales for the organization, according to the Journal.

According to PC Magazine, the not-for-profit organization will allow marketing on the Internet this year, including the use of social media to sell the cookies.

In the past, the ban on online marketing was to encourage the girl scouts to develop face-to-face selling and business skills.

And for those who are looking to watch their weight and their health, the organization made a pledge that the majority—five of eight cookie varieties—will contain no hydrogenated oils and trans-fats, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The Samoas, Tagalongs, and the Thin Mints are the three varieties that do contain hydrogenated oils, the Sun report added.
