JAMESTOWN – The Girl Scout Cookie season has officially kicked off for 2019 with the introduction of a new cookie.

As part of the long tradition of Girl Scouts selling cookies, a new Glutin-free cookie has joined the traditional list of Thin Mints, S’Mores and Samoas, among other flavors.

Girl Scouts said the new cookie contains rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and just a touch of sea salt.

Girl Scouts have been selling cookies since 1917. Scouting officials say the program helps girls learn skills including goal-setting, money management, people skills and ethics.

Cookie sales also fund troop activities like trips, community service projects and field trips.
