Everyone’s favorite cookie is back for 2020, and Girl Scout’s of America are once again making it that much easier for you to get your hands on your favorites.
Lamar County has a rich history of supporting their local girl scouts. With each box purchased, the money raised goes back to helping local girls experience the outdoors, participate in STEM activities, learn about different cultures through travel or develop programs to make our community a better place.
This year the Girl Scout’s are introducing a brand new cookie named Lemon-Ups™. This new crispy lemon cookie is baked with messages inspired by Girl Scout entrepreneurs.
“I am a go-getter” and “I am an innovator” are among the eight phrases that bring the experience of Girl Scouting to life.
The variety replaces the Savannah Smiles® cookie in markets where it was offered, joining the national lineup that also includes the Lemonades® cookie, savory slices of shortbread with lemon-flavored icing.
Also notable, all eight varieties of Girl Scout cookies will go up in price by $1 in 2020. Most boxes of cookies will cost $5. Specialty cookies such as Toffee-tastic (which are gluten free) and S’mores (which are natural, organic and non-GMO) will cost $6.
And, if you don’t want to play with fate on securing your cookies by visiting a stand, make sure you download the Cookie Finder App through Google Play or the Apple App Store.
How does it work? In true Girl Scout style, a girl always manages her sale. So if you know a Girl Scout, tell her you’re interested in buying cookies from her online, and she’ll take it from there!
Remember, Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find a location near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app. Local purchases have been announced at such places like Walmart, Brookshire’s, and Family Video will be available between Jan. 18 through till Feb. 29, on select days.
“Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies—but the program is about so much more than cookies,” said GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. “Girls learn about entrepreneurship as they run their own cookie businesses. The important business and financial literacy skills girls learn through the program are proven to build their leadership skills and position them for success in the future. When you purchase cookies, you are helping girls power their Girl Scout experience, and you’re supporting female entrepreneurs.”
