For six weeks each year, Girl Scouts in Arizona participate in the largest girl-led business: the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Through March 4, more than 13,000 girls in central and northern Arizona will be walking around neighborhoods and boothing in front of local stores learning entrepreneurial skills while selling delicious cookies.
The Girl Scout S’mores cookie, introduced last year, combines two iconic Girl Scout traditions—the S’more and Girl Scout Cookies—into one tasty treat. S’mores are a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallowy filling.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos and Savannah Smiles, traditional favorites, also return. For the third year in a row, some girls will be selling a limited quantity of gluten-free Toffee-tastics.
Girl Scout Cookies are $5 per box, except for Toffee-tastics and Girl Scout S’mores, which are $6 per box. To find a cookie booth near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org and put in your ZIP code.
