Girl Scouts gear up for annual cookie sale

-A A +A

PERRY COUNTY – Area Girl Scouts are readying to take cookie orders from Jan. 1 through Jan. 23.

This year’s sale will offer eight varieties of cookies: Thin Mints, Shortbreads, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel deLites, Thanks-a-Lots, Lemonades and a new Belgian-style cookie called Shout Outs.

A change this year will be a new “soft” packaging for the Thanks-a-Lots, which, according to cookie suppliers ABC Interbake, eliminates more than 150 tons of paperboard from the waste stream.

Cookies sell for $3.50 per box. Girls will deliver cookies and collect money Feb. 14 through March 13. For more information, call (812) 421-4970 or visit www.girlscouts-gssi.org.
