Girl Scout cookie season is in full swing! With things still a little different this year, the Girl Scouts organization has made it easy for you to locate where to find your favorite treats. For those that don’t have a neighborhood girl selling cookies, you can input your zip code on https://www.girlscouts.org to find out where troops will have booths set up and you can even get the cookies shipped directly to your home. A new cookie added to the yummy selection this year is Adventurefuls™ which is brownie inspired and topped with caramel creme and a hint of sea salt.
