The Girl Scouts have unveiled two new cookies.

Here’s your clue to their inspiration: marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate.

Yep. They taste like s’mores, but less gooey, messy and sticky.

The announcement on Wednesday marked both National S’Mores Day and the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary of selling cookies.

One of the new cookies is vegan, a crispy graham cookie dipped in creme icing and coated in chocolate, the Girl Scouts tell People magazine.

The other is built like a campfire s’more: chocolate and marshmallowy filling sandwiched between two crunchy graham crackers.

In a first for the Girl Scouts, the cookies will contain no artificial flavors or colors, high-fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Both will be available during the 2017 cookie season.

“S’mores are a staple of the camping experience, and the new cookie variety combines that tradition of Girl Scouting with the iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program,” Barbara Murphy-Warrington, CEO of Girl Scouts of Greater New York, told the New York Daily News.

The Girl Scouts have ties to s’mores history, claiming to be one of the first to publish a recipe in a 1925 Girl Scout Leader magazine, according to People.

The last new Girl Scout cookies added to the lineup, ABC News reports, were Rah-Rah Raisins and the gluten-free Toffee-tastic and Trios introduced last year.
