SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Girls Scouts of America have returned to selling cookies, including a new “adventure-filled” choice.
The classic cookies that captivate taste buds across the country are back. While most are familiar with the likes of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Samoas, an option debuting this season could prove to become one of the most popular very soon.
Adventurefuls are “an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt.” This delicious combination packed into cookie form is already available.
Jan. 11 was the first day you could order Girl Scout cookies online on the Digital Cookie platform. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cookie purchases were solely digital the last two years. However, most troops hope to go back to in-person methods via booths or door-knocking this time around. The first day booth setups are permitted is Feb. 21.
“Our Girl Scouts have quickly pivoted their sales methods to more on-line sales, virtual cookie booths on social media, and contact-less drive-through locations,” said Karen Peterlin, CEO of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. “We’re proud of the resourceful ways Girl Scouts are running their cookie businesses safely; and this year our girls will continue to exemplify the life and leadership skills that prepares them to become successful businesswomen.”
Two troops associated with Indian Valley Elementary School (Troop 24186) and Pinecrest Elementary School (Troop 24135) are located in Sylacauga, and you can contact either to purchase cookies.
Cookies that are ordered from local scouts will begin delivery on Feb. 11, and cookies will be available for purchase through March.
