Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades, Thin Mints, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich and Girl Scout S'mores.

Not a bad one in the bunch, is there?

If pressed, however, could you name your favorite? Everybody seems to have at least one that they simply cannot resist.

It is natural. When we think of Girl Scouts, we think of cookies. And soon, boxes of those familiar tasty treats will be available across our area, as the Girl Scouts begin their second century of selling cookies.

During Girl Scout Cookie season, each G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) sets out to sell delicious cookies, while also building entrepreneurial and business skills that are imperative for leadership and future success.

Nearly 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, generating nearly $800 million in sales during the average season. All of the net revenue raised stays within the community. Councils use cookie earnings to power amazing experiences for girls through their programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more.

This year, girls will sell cookies door-to-door and at booth sales, as well as through the Smart Cookie Direct platform, an innovative and educational web-based addition to the cookie program that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses online.

In the Coastal Bend, cookie sales begin Saturday, January 13th and run through Sunday, February 25th.

The Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas is an organization over 21,100 strong, with more than 17,300 girls and nearly 3,800 adults serving 26 south Texas counties. The organization is committed to providing the Girl Scout Leadership experience to girls ages 5-17 in ways that inspire and motivate them to take action for themselves and their world.
