Girl Scouts will begin selling Girl Scout cookies Friday, Dec. 13, including the popular Thin Mints and Caramel deLites.

Scouts all over Eastern Massachusetts will begins taking cookie orders on Friday, as well as holding booth sales for those wanting cookies for the holidays. Cookies ordered will be delivered the first week of February.

Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is excited to bring back America’s favorite cookies, including Thin Mints, and to introduce two new flavors this year. 

One of the new cookies is Cranberry Citrus Crunch, a crispy cookie full of tangy cranberry bits and zesty citrus. The other is a Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread, available in limited supply at $5 a bag, and must be pre-ordered. (All other cookies are $4 a box.)

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Council Council is selling cookies from now through March 4, 2013.

The Eastern Massachusetts Girl Scouts (GSEM) are selling Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbreads, Thanks-A-Lots, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Sandwiches and Cranberry Citrus Crunch. 

GSEM is also a test council for the gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. The gluten-free bags will be available in mid-January. These are available through pre-order. Framingham Girl Scouts are taking advance orders for those cookies now through Dec. 20. 

Girl Scout Cookies are an icon of American culture. For nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of the annual sale. Your purchase means you get tasty cookies—and a girl learns a lifetime of skills, such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

During the cookie sale, girls work towards a common goal as part of a team. The money earned from cookie activities helps the troop partake in service projects, go on field trips, purchase patches, attend summer camp and so much more.
