A portion of the sales of each drink will go to the Girl Scouts of Central Texas. Girl Scouts from around Southern Arizona gathered at the McKale Center Saturday to kick off the season. Other varieties include Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos, Savannah Smiles and the certified gluten-free Toffee-tastic.

Cookies will be delivered from February 23 to March 1.

All of the money raised stays within the council area.

"We're trying to get our bronze awards and our goal is 2,500 boxes", said Black Diamond Girl Scout Mackenzie.

But, organizers say the group is more than just about selling those famous cookies.

From helping at animal shelters and feeding the homeless to raising awareness about bullying, embarking on educational travel opportunities, and tons more, Girl Scouts are doing awesome things made possible by each and every cookie sale. The Girl Scout S'mores flavor which debuted in 2017 is also back for another year.

Around 7,500 Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program in East Tennessee.
