Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) Cookie Season is fastly approaching, and the chances of cheating on your New Years resolution with one or many of the delicious flavors is high.

S’mores™, a popular flavor from last year, is back this season! The campfire cookie joins Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, Shortbread, Lemonades™, Thanks-A-Lot®, Peanut Butter Patties®, Peanut Butter Sandwich, and gluten-free Trios. This means consumers will again be able to get their hands on the mouthwatering cookies that power unique and amazing experiences for girls with each and every purchase.

“During Girl Scout Cookie season, each young G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) is not only selling delicious cookies, but also building essential life skills, such as goal setting, people skills, and business ethics,” said Jana Reeves, Director of Product Programs. “These skills are essential for 21st century leadership.”

Girl Scouts will be showing off their cookie-selling skills by participating in booth (starting Jan 19), door-to-door, cookie drive-thrus, and digital sales from December 26 until March 4. The more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to power impactful community projects and personal enrichment experiences, such as STEM activities and traveling.

GSSA is also offering a Buy 5 Contest. Any consumer who buys five or more boxes of Girl Scout Cookies will be entered in a chance to win a year supply of Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scout Cookies are $4, with the exception of Trios, which are $5.

Every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies is an investment in girls both now and in the future and their leadership capabilities, with 100 percent of the net revenue staying local. To learn more about the Girl Scout Cookie Program, and to find out when Girl Scouts will be selling near you, visit
