Are you a fan of cookies? Are you a fan of brownies? If you answered yes to both of those, then you are going to love the new Girl Scout Cookies.
As if we didn’t already love the Girl Scouts and their delicious cookies enough, right? Now, they have given us yet another reason to be excited about the upcoming cookie season. The popular organization announced early on Tuesday that they will be adding a new flavor of cookie called “Adventurefuls.” And it sounds just as good as you would imagine it would.
“Get ready to tase the adventure,” the Girl Scouts website reads. “This year, cookie-loving consumers across the country can get a great big taste of deliciousness and adventure with new Adventurefuls, the latest addition to the iconic Girl Scout Cookie lineup.”
The website compares the taste of the new brownie-inspired cookie to an adventure. It’s a perfect comparison, really, as the girl scouts go on so many of their own adventures while being involved with the program.
“An indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored creme and a hint of sea salt, Adventurefuls take cookie lovers on a delicious taste adventure just like Girl Scouts go on their own amazing adventures all year long.”
And if those flavors don’t sound like your cup of tea, don’t worry. The Girl Scouts across the United States will continue to offer some of the top fan favorites. Those include cookies like Thin Mints, Samoas, and Caramel deLites. That’s in addition to their brand new Adventureful cookies.
Are you interested in knowing when all of the flavors will be available in your local area? Just sign up and follow the directions on the Girl Scout Cookies website.
Organization Looking to Sell Girl Scout Cookies in an Effort to Bounce Back from Last Year
So many of us have been affected in one way or another by the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes your everyday person trying to go shopping. And it includes our entertainers who can’t perform. But one group that was also affected was the Girl Scouts who can’t sell cookies.
At the time, nobody really thought about it. Just how hard could an organization like the Girl Scouts could be affected by a worldwide pandemic? But they were hit hard. So hard, in fact, that they had approximately 15 million boxes of unsold cookies in surplus at the end of the year.
A typical Girl Scout Cookie season would see girls selling about 200 million boxes of cookies. That totals out to an average revenue of more than $800 million per year. But Kelly Parisi, a spokesperson for the Girl Scouts of USA, said their inability to sell cookies actually made total sense.
“This is unfortunate,” Parisi stated. “But given this is a girl-driven program and the majority of cookies are sold in person, it was to be expected.”
