It’s been a long, difficult slog since that generous supply of Thin Mints and Samoas you stocked up on in 2021 ran out. But good news, Girl Scout Cookie fans: Your days of gazing wistfully into a pantry with nary a Trefoil nor Tagalong in sight are nearing an end.

Girl Scout Cookie season 2022 — so fleeting, so finite — is now underway.

While the Girl Scouts of the USA has yet to make an official announcement and local on-sale dates vary, troops in some areas of the country are now taking orders. (Ordering from others may not begin for a few more days or weeks; you can check the Cookie Finder on the Girl Scouts’ website for availability from a troop near you.)

The season officially runs from January through April — although, again, local dates vary — so don’t panic. There are lots of ways to get your cookies: the aforementioned Girl Scouts website’s Cookie Finder; download the free Cookie Finder app onto your phone and place your order that way; connect directly with a Girl Scout you know (or find one via the Council Finder) and place your order with her; or text “Cookies” to 59618.

Of course, in addition to ordering your old favorites, you’ll want to try the Girl Scouts’ new cookie for 2022: Adventurefuls.

The new cookies, officially described as “Indulgent brownie-inspired cookies topped with caramel flavored creme with a hint of sea salt,” were announced in August.

Food Network Editor Maggie Wong got an early taste. Her verdict? “They’re just like brownie brittle with a little something extra,” she said. “They’ve got the satisfying crunch of brittle and the rich, chocolatey flavor of a brownie, topped off with a gooey, indulgent pool of caramel. It’s loaded with lots of flavors and textures in a single bite.”

Now, finally, the rest of us can try Adventurefuls ourselves and reach our own conclusions. And yes, last year’s new cookie — the Toast-Yay! (“Yummy toast-shaped cookies full of French toast flavor and dipped in delicious icing”) — will also be returning this year.

You can find this year’s full Girl Scout Cookie lineup here — and of course feel good that the money you spend on cookies supports your local Girl Scout council and troops.

“Troops may use the money earned to fund a project that will improve their community or donate the money to a worthy cause,” notes Girl Scouts of the USA.

Our love of Do-si-dos is deep and real, but supporting the entrepreneurial education and efforts of these young Scouts is definitely the sweetest part of all.
