Michiana Girl Scouts to begin annual cookie sale

Michiana Girl Scouts to begin annual cookie sale

After last year's 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies, troops across Nebraska will kick off this season February 2 with the return of Girl Scout S'mores, the most popular new flavor in the history of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

"We're really excited about the S'mores coming back".

Plus, for the second year, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is giving away a new auto.

For many of us, Girl Scout cookies are a treat that we look forward to all year. The Girl Scouts continue to add new flavors, including whole-grain Cranberry Citrus Crisps and gluten-free Trios (a chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal cookie made with gluten-free oats). Peterson says their goal with this contest is to engage the public with the Cookie Program.

It's that time of year, again. "So with Baxter's help we chose to do it again this year", explained Peterson.

When one make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, they're helping the next generation of girl entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful - teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. It isn't just a cookie sale - it's a hands-on leadership and business program for girls. "The troops keep the proceeds from the sale", said Peterson. "They use it to fund their activities". Cookies will be sold through March 4. The contest for the new vehicle will run from February 2nd to March 9th.

Local Girl Scouts will sell eight varieties of cookies in 2018: S'mores, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread, Caramel deLites, Lemonades and Thanks-A-Lot.
