COLFAX — Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont is kicking off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season this month in western and central North Carolina. Consumers can support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by purchasing their favorite cookies now.
This year, Girl Scouts are selling the new Adventurefuls cookie, an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt. Adventurefuls joins the whole lineup of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites like Thin Mints, Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties.
Like last year, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state and CDC guidelines, as well as sell online, to get everyone’s favorite cookies to them. Customers can also purchase cookies and donate them to Operation Sweet Treat, a service project that sends cookies to U.S. military men and women here and overseas.
And every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, having a courageous and exciting outdoor experience or organizing a community service project, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.
