You know things are getting back to normal when Girl Scouts sell their cookies on Larchmont Boulevard. Look for the iconic boxes starting Sun., Jan. 30 through Sun., March 13. That gives you many weeks to choose, purchase and repurchase your favorite Girl Scout cookie. Are you a Thin Mint fan or do you lean toward Tagalongs? Why not try all nine flavors this year!?!

In fact, our neighborhood gets the opportunity to try the newest Girl Scout cookie, the Adventurefuls: a brownie cookie with caramel flavored crème and a hint of sea salt. Will it be soft like a brownie or crunchy like a cookie? Either way it should be delicious.

If you are thinking that your purchase only goes to your waistline, think again. These purpose-filled cookies fuel the organization’s principles of goal setting, making decisions, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Girl Scouts started selling cookies door-to-door in 1928, and the tradition has been going strong ever since. This program is the largest girl-run business in the world. It’s an amazing opportunity for youngsters to learn entrepreneurial skills, work with a team and make a plan.

ADVENTUREFULS is the newest cookie in the Girl Scout line.

A portion of the money raised from each box goes back to the seller’s chapter.

The chapter collectively makes decisions on how to spend the money. Some of the money goes to service projects that help the community, some goes to outdoor adventures for the troop, and some goes to enhancing weekly meetings.

Coco Scott, 12, of Hancock Park and Troop 4475, has been a Girl Scout and Thin Mint fan for six years. She is very excited to sell cookies this year because the money her troop raises goes toward a trip. Coco hopes to sell 100 boxes. Over the years, she’s learned different ways of selling cookies and good ways to advertise her product.

Whatever your favorite flavor is, buy some this season knowing you are supporting girls, community and entrepreneurship for the next generation.
