Cookies are $3.50 a box again this year. Cookies ordered will arrive in Putnam County for distribution on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Anyone who doesn't know a Girl Scout may contact Northern Putnam County Service Unit Manager Katrina Asher at 522-1571 or email@example.com to place an order.
Girl Scout cookies come in eight flavors, including a new variety, Savannah Smiles, a cool and crisp lemon wedge cookie, with lemon chips delivering tiny bursts of flavor. Savannah Smiles are a tribute to the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting, which began in Savannah, Ga.
Classic favorites will also be offered, including:
-- Do-Si-Dos, crisp and crunchy oatmeal cookies with creamy peanut butter filling.
-- Dulce de Leche, a sweet cookie with milk caramel chips and stripes.
-- Samoas, a vanilla cookie, covered with caramel on top and bottom, and rolled in toasted coconut, and striped with a rich chocolaty coating.
-- Tagalongs, a cookie topped with creamy peanut butter and covered with a chocolaty coating.
-- Thank U Berry Munch, made with cranberries providing a tartness in a cookie sweetened with creamy, white fudge chips.
-- Thin Mints, the ever-popular thin, wafer-covered cookies with a smooth chocolaty coating, made with natural peppermint.
-- Trefoils, a variety of shortbread cookies.
Customers who buy cookies from local Girl Scouts can be assured the proceeds will directly benefit Girl Scouts in their community.
A portion of each package of cookies sold goes to troops to fund activities such as trips, camps, hands-on activities and community service projects.
