There's a delicious new addition to the Pillsbury product range that carries a real risk of turning us all into doughboys.

Anyone who craves the taste Girl Scout Cookies all-year round can now get what they want thanks to a new range of baking mixes launched last week by Pillsbury and the Girl Scouts of the USA.

Pillsbury – based in Minneapolis and owned by General Mills and J.M. Smucker – is offering brownie/blondie and cupcake mixes flavored like "Thin Mints" and "Caramel deLites" cookies.

The mixes will be available at grocery stores everywhere for about $3.29, according to a press release.

Mashable, depicting Americans as Girl Scout cookie-crazed gluttons, says that "no longer will Americans everywhere be forced to freeze their Thin Mints for months, even years, hoping to savor every last fatty crumb."

As you might expect, the reaction to the news on social media has been positive:
