NEW YORK, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- The Girl Scouts of the USA said it would trim its lineup of cookies this year, dropping Duce De Leche and Thank U Berry Munch in some key markets.

"The decision to make the fewer cookies is not based on the economy" CNN quoted a spokeswoman, Michelle Tompkins, as saying. "It was a business decision made a couple of years ago."

Cookie sales have grown into a $714 million annual business for the Girl Scouts. They are made by ABC Bakers, which will keep the full menu, and Little Brownie Bakers, which is cutting back on the varieties offered.

That means New York City, Atlanta, Oklahoma and parts of California will have a slimmer selection this year.

Not to worry: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-Dos and other popular varieties will still be available, CNN said.
