‘Tis the season for Girl Scout cookies. But this being 2022, the delivery of regional favorites comes via a whole new delivery system. Michelle Shen sifted the crumbs of the details for USA Today.
The Girl Scouts have adopted a hybrid model and have partnered with DoorDash to ensure boxes reach purchasers nationwide.
This move is in response to the rapidly growing number of COVID-19 cases fueled by the heavily contagious omicron variant.
When it comes to which varieties are being delivered where, parsing state-by-state searches for particular flavors reveals regional preferences
Thin Mints, for example, topped the charts in 38 states, including Pennsylvania.
Tagalongs were the most-searched cookie in eight states, including nearby Delaware.
Adventurefuls (a brownie-like treat with caramel flavored créme and a dash of sea salt) came next, rising to the top of three states’ online hunts.
Do-Si-Dos, the peanut-butter sandwich cookie, is favored only by South Dakotans, as ranked by browser-based fishing for them.
“As a Girl Scouts cookie lover myself, I am so excited to welcome Girl Scouts of the USA to our platform, providing a fast and convenient option for customers to access beloved Girl Scout Cookies on-demand, while empowering Girl Scouts to meaningfully grow their cookie businesses,” said Shanna Prevé, DoorDash’s VP of strategic partnerships and business development.
Deliveries in all states will start in February.
