Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, GSACPC, and Girl Scouts of the USA, GSUSA, announced Aug. 17 that a new cookie, Adventurefuls, will join the nationwide lineup for the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season.
A brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt, Adventurefuls take cookie lovers on a delicious taste adventure just like Girl Scouts go on amazing adventures through the program.
Girl Scouts in central and northern Arizona and across the United States will offer the Adventurefuls cookie next season alongside renowned favorites such as Thin Mints and Samoas.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program, which will take place across central and northern Arizona from Jan. 17 to Feb. 27, 2022, helps girls develop skills in five areas: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
These are essential skills needed to successfully navigate life — whether working on a high school science project team, running a household, becoming a project manager or a company CEO.
“Every purchase of Adventurefuls, and the whole portfolio of iconic cookies, during cookie season, fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about,” Tamara Woodbury, CEO of GSACPC, stated in the release.
Also, new this year, GSUSA recently announced new “cookie business” badges that help girls think like entrepreneurs as they run their own cookie businesses and incorporate online sales via the Digital Cookie platform.
The badges progress from goal setting and effective sales-pitching in person and online to market research, creating business plans and implementing digital marketing campaigns.
“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,” Woodbury stated.
