Scouts have new cookies to peddle

Girl Scout cookie sales start Feb. 11. To celebrate a huge milestone for cookie sales, and to thank cookie buyers, a new flavor will be available for them to purchase.

“This is the 100th anniversary of girls selling cookies, so they came out with a new cookie called S’mores,” explains Brenda Soyez, cookie cupboard manager for the county and Marion Girl Scout leader. It is a sandwich cookie with chocolate and marshmallow filling between two graham cracker cookies.

Other cookies available include Lemonades, Thanks-a-Lots, Caramel Delights, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties and Sandwiches, Shortbread, and gluten-free Trios.

The sale runs through March 19. Girl Scouts will have cookie booths around Marion on Saturdays starting Feb. 18.

Those interested in purchasing cookies also may call Soyez at (620) 382-6193.
