Girl Scouts adding new Adventurefuls brownie cookies for 2022 season
Girl Scout Cookie season is still months away, but a brownie-inspired cookie is coming.
The Girl Scouts of the USA revealed Tuesday that the new Adventurefuls cookie will join its national lineup for the 2022 season.
The annual start of cookie season is recognized nationally January through April, but timing and specific cookie availability can vary by region.
“Available nationwide, every bite of Adventurefuls is full of indulgent brownie-inspired flavor with a combination of chocolatey and caramel flavors, and smooth and crispy textures, for an incredible taste of adventure in every bite,” the Girl Scouts said in a news release.

The organization said it recently announced new Cookie Business badges that "help girls think like entrepreneurs as they run their own cookie businesses and incorporate online sales via the Digital Cookie platform."
For 2021, a French toast-inspired cookie "Toast-Yay!" joined the lineup. It's listed on the Girl Scouts website along with Adventurefuls, Thin Mints and Samoas, which are known as Caramel deLites in some areas.
For decades, cookies have been sold at booths outside grocery and other stores, door-to-door in local neighborhoods, and through family and friends bringing order forms to work to tempt their co-workers.
In March 2020, the national organization suspended door-to-door sales and in-person cookie booths because of the spread of COVID-19 and took the cookie season online. The 2021 cookie season also had online sales and sales through "virtual cookie booths" on social media.
This spring, Wing, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc., delivered cookies by drone for the Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline to help boost cookie sales, which were hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic.
