New this year: the Lemon-Ups cookie is a crispy lemon cookie baked with messages inspired by Girl Scout entrepreneurs.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Girl Scouts - Diamonds are getting ready to kick off their cookie program on January 10th by announcing their newest cookie, Lemon-Ups.

“I am a go-getter” and “I am an innovator” are two of the eight phrases that display the Girl Scout experience.
