Girl Scout cookie sales launch next week

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for cookie lovers, particularly those who love Girl Scout cookies. The annual fundraiser launches next week, with a new flavor being added to the mix.

2017 marks the 100th year of cookie sales and to celebrate, Girl Scouts are debuting a new flavor: S’mores. The crunchy graham sandwich cookie has creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling.

“The S’mores cookie is a delicious homage to the Girl Scouts’ influence on mainstream camping traditions and a celebration of our commitment to get girls outside,” said Marina Park, Girl Scouts of Northern California CEO. “When you buy a box of cookies you are supporting fun adventures and projects that build real-life skills, self-assuredness and a lifelong connection to nature.”

For those with dietary restrictions, know this: Thin Mints are now certified as vegan, Toffee-tastics are gluten-free, and Trefoils have no nuts.

Sales launch around the Bay Area on Feb 1, and will run through March 5. To help track down the cookies, Girl Scouts have created an app that can be downloaded on iTunes or for Android.

Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, and Savannah Smiles will be sold for $5 per box. Toffee-tastic and the new Girl Scout S’mores cookies will be $6 per box.

 In collaboration with three Bay Area craft breweries, the Girl Scouts of Northern California are hosting a series of Girl Scout Cookie and craft beer pairing fundraising events. In San Francisco, Magnolia Brew Pub at 1398 Haight St. will be offering a tasting flight of five different craft beers that pair with five different Girl Scout Cookies.
