Friendly's Girl Scouts Thin Mints(TM) Cookie Ice Cream Cake Brings Together Two American Favorites

April 27, 2011 // Franchising.com // Wilbraham, Mass. -- Friendly's introduces the Friendly's Girl Scouts Thin MintsTM Cookies Ice Cream Cake. Under a new license agreement with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), the ice cream experts at Friendly's have created a frozen confection that incorporates the top-selling Girl Scout Cookie variety-Thin Mints.

Friendly's premium chocolate ice cream with chunks of Girl Scout Thin MintsTM brand cookies and a crunchy Girl Scout Thin MintsTM cookie center is covered with rich chocolate truffle. The entire cake is then topped with more Girl Scout Thin MintsTM cookie chunks and a crisscross drizzle of fudge.

"We are very excited to introduce this delicious dessert that combines two of America's best loved treats - Girl Scout Thin Mints and Friendly's ice cream," said Tim Hopkins, Friendly's Executive Vice President, Retail and Manufacturing.

"Girl Scouts is pleased to be working with Friendly's to expand awareness of our organization to grocery store shoppers, and Girl Scout Cookie aficionados will now have a new way to enjoy their favorite treat," said Barry Horowitz, GSUSA's Vice President and General Manager, Girl Scout Merchandise.

Friendly's Girl Scouts Thin Mints Cookie Cake will be available at all Friendly's restaurants and select retail locations beginning in April.
