ATLANTA – You’re in luck if you ordered Thin Mints. Or Samoas. Or even the Tagalongs.
But the Lemon Chalet Creme Girl Scout cookies probably won’t taste as good this year, according to the company that makes the popular treats.
Some people have reported an “off taste and smell” from certain packages of the lemon cookies, according to a statement on the Little Brownie Bakers Web site.
The Louisville, Ky., company says the cookies are safe to eat. They’re just not as tasty as they could be.
“The cookies are still edible, but are not recommended for consumption as they are not up to our quality standards,” according to the company’s statement.
The company says certain lots of the lemon cookies contain oils that may be breaking down. No illnesses have been reported.
All of the Girl Scout councils that have received the smelly cookies are being notified, according to the company.
