“What could be more delicious than a candle that smells like your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?! As an official national licensee of Girl Scouts of the USA, it is with great pleasure that The Yankee Candle Company offers you our new line of Girl Scout Cookie™ Candles and Car Jars® (Air Fresheners). “


That is how Girl Scouts announced their partnership with Yankee Candles on their website.


“These are the perfect gift for troop leaders, cookie managers and Girl Scout volunteers” they say.

Girl Scouts is offering Yankee Candles in four scents: Thin Mint, Trefoils, Coconut Caramel Stripes (Samoas) and Chocolate Peanut Butter (Tagalongs).

Sadly, Girls Scouts is also offering one additional “scent” every time they partner with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

It is the scent of babies dying – a scent no amount of PR can cover.

Our brand has always valued sharing experiences with friends and family,” said Geoff Medeiros, vice president brand and product development for The Yankee Candle Company, Inc. “We’re excited to offer consumers the chance to make memories with the beloved Girl Scout Cookies in a whole new way.”

Expanding the Girl Scout Cookie brand to candles is a natural fit,” said Barry Horowitz, chief merchandise officer at Girl Scouts of the USA. “We are bringing together two iconic American brands to create a consumer experience that engages the senses and helps tell the story of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, which helps turn today’s girls into tomorrow’s leaders in business, finance, and beyond.

Honestly, not all girls – not the unborn ones.
