Girl Scout Cookies Season Brings New Flavor: How to Buy Online

by Clayton Edwards

Christmas might be over but that doesn’t mean that all the magic is gone from the winter. After all, Girl Scout cookie season is officially underway. Well, in some places it is. For others, it’s right around the corner. Officially, the scouts sell cookies between January and April. So, if they aren’t selling in your area, they will be before too long.

This year, several customers are in for a real treat. The Girl Scouts are introducing a new cookie for 2022. Adventurefuls are “An indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt,” according to the GUSA website. They say that Adventurefuls will take cookie lovers on “a delicious taste adventure.” Cookie season just got a little better.

If salted caramel brownie-inspired cookies aren’t your thing, don’t worry. The Girl Scouts will still have all of their iconic cookies up for grabs this season as well.

How to Get Girl Scout Cookies

In the past, you could pick up Girl Scout cookies just about anywhere. In fact, you’d almost have to try to miss them. However, that changed in 2020. Like just about everything else, COVID put a damper on cookie season. Last year, troops had to go to selling online or setting up contactless cookie booths. In many areas, this year will bring much of the same due to concerns over the latest COVID variant.

However, the Girl Scouts are going into this cookie season with more experience. As a result, troops are better prepared to sell online and at contactless cookie booths. To find out what they’re doing in your area, check the official Girl Scout website. If you enter your zip code, it will tell if troops in your area are selling and where they’re located.

If no troops are selling in your area, don’t fret. Starting in February, you can order from a troop online and have the cookies delivered directly to your home. Additionally, you can text COOKIES to 59618 to get updates about sales in your area. For Android or iOS users, there’s the free Girl Scout Cookie Finder App.

In some areas, it will be easier to get cookies. In certain markets, people will be able to order Girl Scout Cookies on GrubHub, according to Delish. The GSUSA partnered with the delivery company last year to great success. Like last year, all of the money from sales goes directly to the Girl Scouts. GrubHub waived all fees so the funds go where they’re needed. Additionally, they’re offering free delivery on orders over $15 until Valentine’s Day.

If you want to know where to find Adventurefuls, you can use the Cookie Finder App to see if the Girl Scouts in your area are selling them.
