As Girl Scouts are preparing to knock on your door and catch your eye after shopping for groceries, a new cookie called adventurefuls is making its debut on the 2022 cookie line-up.

Alongside the classic favorites including do-si-dos, samoas, thin mints and trefoils, Girl Scouts across the country will begin introducing their newest cookie to their sales pitch – adventurefuls.

Adventurefuls are brownie-inspired cookies filled with a caramel flavored creme, a hint of sea salt and a chocolate drizzle on top.

Doty Middle School student, Jocelyn Pena, said that she is excited to support her local Girl Scouts this season.

“My friend is a Girl Scout and I always look forward to helping her,” Pena said. “My favorite cookies are thin mints but I’m excited to try the new adventurefuls because I also love brownies.”

The cookie funds go into support Girl Scout troops, fueling and subsidizing their learning activities ranging from camping trips to troop resources, to STEM projects and more.

According to the Girl Scouts official website, net proceeds from sales stay local and fund outdoor experiences, travels, and community projects.

Jackeline Vallejos, Girl Scout mom and Insurance agent, said that her daughter is excited to be able to sell cookies and be back on her feet with her friends again.

“My daughter is ecstatic to be able to sell cookies door-to-door this year and communicate with people. We can’t wait to start doing regular Girl Scout activities again soon,” said Vallejos.

This year, cookie lovers of all ages have the option to purchase their $5 boxes in person at local booths or order their treats to be shipped or delivered straight to their homes.

Many Girl Scout family and friends are posting links to their troop’s fundraiser on various social media platforms like Facebook, promoting the start of the sweetest season of the year and encouraging the community to support their local Girl Scouts.
