LOS ANGELES – The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Tuesday gave cookie lovers something to look forward to in the new year — a brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt.
The “Adventurefuls” cookie will debut alongside the varieties offered last year, including favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas, the nonprofit announced Tuesday.
It will be the first time in three years that the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles has released a new cookie.
Every purchase of Adventurefuls, and the rest of the cookie lineup during cookie season, helps fund local Girl Scouts’ adventures. Through the Girl Scouts’ cookie program, girls also become entrepreneurs as they gain hands-on experience running their own small business.
The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles also announced the introduction of Cookie Business badges to help girls think like entrepreneurs as they run their own cookie businesses and incorporate online sales via the Digital Cookie platform. The badges progress from goal setting and effective sales-pitching in person and online to using market research, creating business plans, and implementing digital marketing campaigns.
