Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama recently announced details for its 2018 cookie season.

The organization's new S'mores flavor is making a return.

It's that time of year, again.

According to area Girl Scout Troop Ambassador 1764 Leader Cathy Parsons, cookie sales begin January 13 and run to March 25.

Customers served by the San Jacinto Council area - which includes Houston, Galveston and Beaumont - can purchase cookies through their local chapters and the troops will then donate cookies directly to Hurricane Harvey first responders, which includes the Cajun Navy in addition to local police, fire department personnel and members of the military. "So with Baxter's help we chose to do it again this year", explained Peterson.

For many of us, Girl Scout cookies are a treat that we look forward to all year.

Cookies will be sold at traditional booths, door-to-door and online. Councils use cookie earnings to power awesome experiences for girls through their programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more. "They use it to fund their activities". The "campfire cookie" is joined by Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Shortbread, Lemonades, Thanks-A-Lot, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich and gluten-free Trios. Cookies are reported to be available for delivery in February.

The cost per box will be $4, and the sale will run through March 4.
