It’s almost here! Girl Scout Cookie Season!
Starting February 1st, those little cookies are back. But what does that look like this year, given the ongoing pandemic?
The Girl Scouts, like so many of us, have had to pivot their businesses a bit to adapt to commerce with Coronavirus restrictions. It’s hard to believe that this time last year I was talking about pairing Girl Scout Cookies with alcohol. Seems so quaint now, doesn’t it? 🙂
Before we get into how to buy your cookies this year, let’s talk about the lineup:
First up, there’s a new cookie on the block–Toast-Yay! A cookie that tastes like French Toast is okay by me.
It’s shaped like a piece of toast, with a layer of icing on the bottom. Sounds like breakfast to me. 🙂
Then our all-time favorites, starting with Thin Mints.
Do-Si-Dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches:
Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs:
Caramel Chocolate Chip:
And TWO kinds of s’mores. You know I love s’mores. 🙂
Surely there is something in the lineup for everyone. And for you gluten-free folks, the Toffee-tastic and Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies are gluten-free!
So how do we get our cookies this year? GrubHub has paired with the Girl Scouts to bring those cookies right to us! And even better, GrubHub has waived their fees to the Girl Scouts so that they can offer this delivery option without diminishing the girls’ profits. Good karma coming GrubHub’s way for that. 🙂
You can go on the GrubHub site here to find out if they will be delivering in your area.
If you have a Girl Scout that you usually purchase from, (or a “dealer,” as I call mine 🙂 ), check with them to see how they are selling their cookies this year.
If you don’t know a Girl Scout, you can text COOKIES to 59618 to find out where you can purchase cookies.
Or you can get the Girl Scout Cookie Finder App in your app store. This will tell you where you can find socially distant or contact-free booths in your area.
Or you can enter your zip code in the online Girl Scout Cookie Finder to find out where cookies will be sold in your area, and on what dates.
So just because this virus still has a grip on us, it doesn’t mean we can’t still have those COOKIES! 🙂 We just have to be a little more diligent in getting them.
So get out there and get those cookies!
And I’d love for you to follow me on Pinterest!
