CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- The Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina kick off the cookie season on Saturday.

The organization estimates that girls in the 26-county council will sell approximately 450,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies this year alone. In 2021, Girl Scouts in the Tri-county council averaged 448 boxes sold per girl, and girls who sold over 4,000 boxes were rewarded with a Bahamas cruise.

Here’s what you need to know about the 2022 cookie season in the Lowcountry:

New cookies

This year, the Girl Scouts are introducing two new cookies to their delicious lineup. The first, called Adventurefuls, is described as “an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel flavored crème and a hint of sea salt.” The other is called “ToastYay” which is a “French toast inspired” cookie. All the classic favorites will still be available including Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, and Lemonades.
