Get ready to shower cash on your nearest Girl Scout, because she’s about to be hawking some covetable new merchandise.

On Tuesday, the Girl Scouts of America announced the addition of a brand new cookie for the 2019 sales season: the Caramel Chocolate Chip. The new cookies, featuring “rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and a hint of sea salt in a chewy cookie, will join “Toffee-tastic” in the line of gluten-free products.

Is this not the most exciting news since we heard Dunkin Donuts would be selling Girl Scout Cookie coffee?

Of course, as the organization frequently likes to remind us, it’s not really about the cookies (but isn’t it?):

“When you buy Girl Scout Cookies you are not only helping girls become business trailblazers, you're also helping them power their Girl Scout adventures and ensuring they have access to the cutting-edge leadership experiences and opportunities that only Girl Scouts can offer,” said CEO Sylvia Acevedo in a statement.

The Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies will be available in select markets, and they will only be sold by local Girl Scouts. So keep your eye out come early 2019 and get your cookie orders in before they’re all snapped up.
