For six weeks each year, Girl Scouts in Arizona participate in the largest girl-led business: the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Through March 8, more than 17,000 girls in central and northern Arizona will be walking around neighborhoods with delicious cookies in hand and boothing in front of local stores.
Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) has introduced two new varieties this year, including the Rah-Rah Raisins, a modern take on oatmeal raisin cookies with Greek yogurt chips, as well as gluten free cookie, called Toffee-tastic. It’s a buttery shortbread with toffee bits. It sells for $5 a box, a dollar more than the other flavors, and is available in very limited quantities.
These new flavors join the traditional favorites: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, and Do-si-dos.
