Pre-sales for Girl Scout cookies begin

It’s Girl Scout cookie season. A new cookie is ready to take your taste buds on an adventure.

Tuesday marked the official start of cookie season with online pre-orders open to cookie lovers.

If you order your cookies now, they will arrive at your house right in time for Valentine’s Day or to a local troop before booth day on February 25th.

This year’s new cookie is called adventurefuls. It’s a brownie inspired cookie with caramel and sea salt.

Members of Troop 2581 out of Ocean Springs stopped by News 25 to discuss the new cookie and their goal for cookie sales this year. “We want to sell 7,000 cookies and also raise money for this project. It’s Trentwood Park and we’re trying to buy playground equipment to add to the park. There are new items every year. There’s a new theme every year. For instance, last year it was horses, this year it’s koalas and you get new things every year so it’s not the same repetitive thing every year.”

Cookies range from $4 to $5 a box. Each Girl Scout has their own website you can purchase cookies from.
