Video: We tried the new S'mores Girl Scout Cookies – they tasted familiar, but not like s'mores

Is that mint? Orange? Caramel? We couldn't quite figure it out.

The Girl Scouts have a new cookie this year that's s'more-flavored.

Since we haven't been able to sit around a campfire and roast a good s'more for a while (and we just love cookies) we decided to bring a box to the office for a taste test.

We didn't want anyone to have any preconceived ideas about the cookies, so we didn't tell people the flavor or where they came from.

Check out the video to see what people thought.

Just so you know, there are actually two different s'mores cookies the Girl Scouts sell. Which one you get depends on where you live.

It's because the Girl Scouts have two different bakers for their cookies – ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers.

The one we tried is a square graham cookie with icing dipped in a chocolate coating. The other one is a graham sandwich cookie with chocolate and marshmallow filling.

ABC Bakers makes the square cookie, and it serves most of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. If you'd like to try the other cookie, you'll have to look in northwestern Minnesota or the Dakotas. Check out this map.
