Girl Scouts across Orange County are now selling the new brownie-inspired Adventurefuls™ cookie alongside other favorites, each purchase powering their amazing adventures.
IRVINE, CA – Girl Scouts of Orange County (GSOC) kicked off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Season on Sunday, January 16, that sweet time of year when consumers can purchase their favorite cookies and support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs. This year, Girl Scouts are selling a sweet new creation coined Adventurefuls—a crunchy, brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt—an adventure in every bite! Adventurefuls join the portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies sold in OC, including favorites like Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, and Peanut Butter Patties®.
Girl Scouts started pre-orders for cookies on January 16. If you know a Girl Scout, ask how she’s selling cookies online for direct shipment or local delivery that will begin January 30. You can also donate “Cookie Share” cookies that are distributed to our nation’s soldiers and local food banks.
The second half of the sale begins February 11. This is when Girl Scout Cookie fans will be able to purchase all their favorite cookies from Girl Scouts at booths safely set up outside local retailers.
This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. From personalized websites to QR codes and the Cookie Finder app, Girl Scouts are excited to bring the much-needed joy of cookies to their customers.
"Our Girl Scouts are amongst the most creative entrepreneurs and marketers out there,” said GSOC CEO Vikki Shepp. “I’ve been so inspired watching our Girl Scouts take the challenges of the pandemic as an opportunity to learn new sales tactics and business skills. When you purchase Girl Scout Cookies, you not only get a delicious treat, you also help Girl Scouts build business savvy and champion their ambition. Many female entrepreneurs fondly recall selling Girl Scout cookies as their first opportunity to manage a business."
The Girl Scout Cookie Program ends March 13. All Girl Scout Cookie sales proceeds stay with the local council and troops to power amazing Girl Scouts adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And, in addition to earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs through the Girl Scout Cookie Program and learn important business skills like setting goals and money management that set them up for success in life.
