2022 Girl Scout Cookie Sales Are On With A New Offering
Our local Girl Scout council, Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) has had its girls participating in the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program® during the COVID-19 pandemic and it hasn't seemed to slow them down one bit. The girls have had to get creative with ways of selling and delivering cookies but because Girl Scout cookies continue to be popular, the council has been able to continue with successful sales that support this enrichment program for girls.
New 2022 Girl Scout Cookie
And get ready to enjoy your favorite Girl Scout cookies because it's official: the 2022 cookie season is now open with a new cookie to be introduced called "Adventurefuls" which is being described as a "brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt."
Why Girl Scout Cookies Sales Matter
The activity of selling cookies is a project that teaches girl scouts a host of skills related to communication, confidence, leadership, and business and hopefully having a good time doing it. It's also the biggest fundraiser for this non-profit organization, providing funds for girl scouts to participate in a variety of enriching activities during the year since all profits stay locally in each troop.
How to Get Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookies
Cookie season will continue from now through March 27 with cookies costing $5 per box and there are nine different cookies to choose from: the new Adventurefuls™, Thin Mints®, Samoas® (my personal favorite), Tagalongs®, Do-si-dos®, Trefoils®, Lemon-Ups®, Girl Scout S'mores®, and gluten-free Toffee-tastic®.
If you happen to know a girl scout, you can reach out to her to find out how she's doing cookies sales. If you don't know a girl scout, no problem. Troops can have digital "stores" to sell their cookies with no contact. You order them and they arrive right to you. Just go to gsnypenn.org/cookies22 where you can find a local troop to place your cookie order with so that that troop benefits. Orders can be placed through February with cookie deliveries in late February and into March.
You will most likely get a chance to purchase cookies at local Girl Scout cookie booth sales events in the community. Some are even drive-up.
