Juliette, the newest cookie in the Girl Scout family, debuts this weekend. The name comes from the first American scout Juliette Lowe; recipe owes more to "turtles," those nutty chocolate candies.
Juliettes, Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs, Chalet Cremes and the original shortbread Trefoils arrive by the truckload this week. Scouts will deliver orders already purchased and peddle more at booths outside stores ($2.50 a box) Sunday through March 27.
