You probably have a favorite Girl Scout cookie or two that you look forward to every year; from Thin Mints to Tagalongs. But if you were hoping to get your hands on that new gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie this year...

"There are two licensed bakers for Girl Scout cookies, and it is the other baker that’s not here in South Florida that has the new cookie that [The Girl Scouts nationaly] announced," says Melinda Glasco of the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida .

So unfortunately you won't find them on sale at your local cookie booth. If you prefer gluten-free cookies, you can still get your hands on the Toffee-Tastics.

And if you like lemon, it's time to stock up says Melinda, "This is the last year of you are a lover of lemon cookies this is the last year of the Savannah Smiles."

While people may focus on their favorite flavor Melinda Glasco says don't lose sight of the sale's mission, "[The girls] learn some really fantastic skills- they learn marketing skills, business skills, money management, goal setting, its a really fantastic learning program for girls."

The sale here officially runs from Jan. 24 to Feb. 17. Now if you REALLY want to get your hands on that new cookie, we did find Girl Scouts in the Orlando Area who are selling them. So just check with other Girl Scouts you may know.
