General Mills, Minneapolis, collaborated with Girls Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), Savannah, Ga., to introduce Girl Scout Cookie yogurt under the Yoplait brand.
"For those who wish they had more ways to enjoy their favorite chocolate mint, peanut butter chocolate and caramel coconut flavors, we have three delicious, new yogurts inspired by America's most popular Girl Scout Cookie flavors," says Doug Martin, business unit director, Yoplait. "Girl Scouts of the USA does extraordinary things for girls like teaching them valuable life and business skills through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, which is why we are honored to work with the organization."
The three new yogurts— Yoplait Whips! Girl Scouts Thin Mints and Yoplait Whips! Girl Scouts Peanut Butter Chocolate in 4-ounce cups and Yoplait Original Girl Scouts Caramel Coconut in 6-ounce cups—are available at retailers nationwide.
"Girl Scouts of the USA is excited about its relationship with Yoplait to create yogurts inspired by three of the beloved Girl Scout Cookie flavors," says Barry Horowitz, GSUSA chief revenue officer. "Beyond the delicious flavor, the yogurts will also remind consumers everywhere of the power of Girl Scout Cookies. The cookie program is the largest entrepreneurial training program for girls in the world, and we are pleased Yoplait is working with us to share the message about the program and the impact of Girl Scouts with even more families in America."
