Raleigh — Along with the arrival of wintry weather, Girl Scout cookies are back and on sale now. Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines kicked off its 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Sales last weekend and Girl Scout cookies were sold at thousands of cookie booths throughout central and eastern North Carolina.
“When customers purchase a box of Girl Scout Cookies, they are supporting a program helping girls grow into leaders in their own life, in business, and in their communities,” said Lisa Jones, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines. “These are more than just cookies – they’re opportunities.”
This year’s cookie lineup boasts nine varieties including the longtime favorite Thin Mints®, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lots®, Caramel deLites®, Lemonades, and gluten-free Trios®. Each variety sells for $4.00 per box.
The Buy 5 Program is available for the 2016 sale. By purchasing five boxes, customers are also eligible to enter a second drawing to win a year’s worth of their favorite Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scout Cookies will be sold throughout the Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines council territory through Sunday, March 6.
