Beginning the first of January, Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is continuing the nearly 100- year tradition of the Girl Scout Cookie sale. The 2013 lineup includes favorites, such as Shortbreads, Thin Mints, Caramel Delights ®, Peanut Butter Patties ®, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Lemonades™, Thanks-A-Lots™ and a new addition, the Mango Crème with Nutrafusion.

The cookie program activity is the nation’s largest girl-led business and the leading financial literacy program for girls. Designed for girls in grades K-12, it is a key element of the Girl Scout leadership experience.

The sale begins with girls taking orders from families, friends and neighbors at their homes and offices. For those who miss out on the in-person sales, they can still find their favorite cookies being sold at booth sales beginning Friday, Feb. 1, where Troops will set up in front of local businesses and shopping centers.

Since 1917, the Girl Scout cookie activity has been an annual event that has helped girls develop important leadership skills.
