Girl Scout Cookies are Coming to Town
Resolutions are made to be broken….it’s Girl Scout Cookie time! From now until mid-March you can get your Thin Mint fix when you order or buy directly from one of Lookout Mountain’s two Girl Scout troops.
Lookout Mountain, GA Troop 40010 was formed last year by troop leader Emily Wade. Tennessee’s Troop 40424 was formed last fall with Alison Roedder and Melissa Youngblood as co-leaders. To place your cookie order, you may contact the parents of a Girl Scout (listed below) or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another option is to buy directly from the Scouts at one of two booth sales happening in March. On the Georgia side, girls will be in front of Georgia City Hall. The Tennessee troop will be outside Market on the Mountain. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for exact dates and times.
As if cookies weren’t exciting enough, there’s a new flavor this year: Girl Scout S’mores. In honor of their 100th anniversary, the “Brownie Bakers” have combined two iconic Girl Scout traditions – s’mores and cookies!
Girl Scouts have also updated their classics to make them more aligned with today’s cookie connoisseurs. While they taste the same, several selections contain no artificial flavors or colors, Thin Mints are now vegan, and Toffee-Tastics are gluten free.
And if you still can’t eat them, treat them! The Girls Scouts have a unique program, Operation Appreciation that allows you to still support your local Girl Scout troop while gifting the actual cookies to the US troops.
