Girl Scout cookies arrived last week in Tucson by the truckload, right before cookie sales officially kicked off.
The selling season, which runs Jan. 13 through March 4, will bring cookie lovers classic flavors like Thin Mints, Samoas and Do-Si-Dos, as well as the return of the S’mores cookie, which was introduced last year.
“Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls are doing much more than selling a box of cookies,” said Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona CEO Debbie Rich.
“Today’s cookie sellers learn the skills they will need to be tomorrow’s business leaders and entrepreneurs — as well as skills like goal-setting, decision-making and people skills, which professionals in every field need in order to succeed.”
Cookies will be sold at traditional booths, door-to-door and online.

Cookies are $5 a box.
