Local Girl Scouts Celebrate 100 Years of Cookies

"Our new S'mores cookie not only celebrates the tradition of making and enjoying s'mores, it also marks 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies and 100 years of Girl Scouting in Colorado", said the Girls Scouts of the United States of America in a January 23 press release.

Have you been hit up for Girl Scout cookies yet? "So instead of buying them from the grocery store, you can buy them from a Girl Scout and have a lot of fun with that", said 12-year-old Diana Loya, a media star with Girl Scout Troop 30222.

The new S'mores cookie combines tradition and a milestone for the Girl Scouts of Colorado.

Charlotte rated each of the Girl Scout's famous cookies on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best. The cookies have kept up with changing times - the Thin Mints are vegan, and no trans fats are used in baking any of the varieties.

Charlotte McCourt, 11, of New Jersey, wrote a very honest review of Girl Scout cookies that has gone viral. Sales will take place from February 1 through March 19. To purchase cookies online, customers must get an invite to shop at a girl's personal website. The new flavor was added to honor the 100th year.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world's largest girl-led business.

Robin Thicke Slapped With Restraining Order After Paula Patton Alleges Abuse
Paula Patton's custody battle with Robin Thicke, 39, has taken a shocking and ugly turn on January 26. It also comes just weeks after the death of Thicke's father, " Growing Pains " actor Alan Thicke.

Each year, the Cookie Program provides girls with an avenue to learn financial literacy and practice important leadership skills while earning proceeds for troop and council activities.

She made a decision to tell the public what she said was the truth behind the Girl Scout cookies.

Seventy cents from every box Diana sells will be given to her troop for funding its day-to-day upkeep, as well as for an annual excursion for the girls. Today, 80 percent of women in leadership and executive roles in the US were Girl Scouts.

This is also the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting in Colorado; the first troop formed in 1917 outside of Colorado Springs.

An online cookie locator or a mobile app can help cookie lovers find booth sale locations.
