‘Tis the Season for Girl Scout Cookies!

The best season of the year is upon us! No, it’s not Spring, it’s not Summer…it’s Girl Scout Cookie Season!

In Arizona, for the month of February, the Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council presents the Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge among restaurants in the Valley and Northern Arizona. For the fifth year in a row, restaurants will go head-to-head to create a custom dessert for their menus with one of the Girl Scout Cookie flavors. A portion of proceeds from each cookie dessert sold will directly support Girl Scouting in our community.
