The 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program® is underway.
Last year, troops in the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) Council sold 1,260,493 boxes of cookies, according to a press release. Nine varieties will be available in 2022, including Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Trefoils®, Lemon-Ups®, and the newest addition, Adventurefuls™, a brownie-themed cookie topped with sea salt and a caramel-flavored crème. The cookies cost $5 per box and will be on sale through March 27.
“Our Girl Scouts are excited about the 2022 cookie program and our number one goal is to keep the experience safe, positive, and educational for them,” said Julie Dale, GSNYPENN CEO, in a press release. “Once again, girls are gaining real-world experience on the importance of leadership, adaptability, and perseverance in the face of challenging times and especially during the ongoing pandemic. The cookie program helps provide normalcy and fun for our local Girl Scouts and we thank the community for their continued support.”
