It’s Girl Scout Cookie time

Special to Atmore News

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama started their annual Cookie Season January 2.
This year’s cookie lineup includes two new cookies, the Adventurefuls and Toast-Yays. Adventurefuls are a brownie-inspired cookie with a caramel filling and a sea salt drizzle on top. Toast-Yays are French toast-inspired cookies with cinnamon icing. The Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Shortbread, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, and the gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies will also be available for purchase this year.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s largest girl-led business and leading financial literacy program for girls. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls learn five essential skills for leadership: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
On January 14, Girl Scouts will begin selling their cookies in booth sales as well as online and door-to-door sales. Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama will also host cookie drive-thrus on January 14, at their offices on this day. The 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program will end on March 6. The more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to power impactful community projects and personal enrichment experiences, such as STEM activities and traveling. Every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies is an investment in girls both now and in the future and their leadership capabilities, with 100 percent of the net revenue staying local.
