Girl Scout cookie season is under way; cookie flavors this year, arriving in newly designed cookie boxes, are Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Dulce De Leche, Thank U Berry Munch and Savannah Smiles.
Proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut's Cookie Program benefit Girl Scouts in Connecticut, including the Girl Scout troop or group from which the cookies were purchased.
The Cookies for Heroes program also returns this year. This service project allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies from their local Girl Scout, and Girl Scouts of Connecticut, along with community partners, ship the cookies to service women and men overseas and at home.
Girl Scout cookie fans who don't know a Girl Scout can go to www.gsofct.org and click on the cookie to connect with Girl Scouts participating in the Cookie Program in their town.
