Today is the day for you or your daughters to take the first step to becoming a Girl Scout here in Western New York.

For 12 hours today between 8 am and 8 pm, the Girls Scouts of Western New York are holding a special "Join-A-Thon" where girls can win some great prizes and get their first patch if they join a troop.

Girls who sign up during the "Join-A-Thon" will not only be introduced to the world of Girl Scouts, but they will be entered to win one of three incredible prizes: a $200 Gift Card, a $100 Gift Card, or a $50 Gift Card. Also, every girl who signs up to join will receive an exclusive Join-a-thon patch as a memorable keepsake.

Plus if anyone is thinking about starting their own troop, they can win some starter funds. Any new troop that registers before January 31, can win $200 towards starter funds.

Do You Remember These Girl Scout Cookie Flavors?

Can You Remember Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie growing up?

As much as we enjoy Girl Scout Cookies in 2023, we often miss the ones that we used to love growing up. Have you heard of my personal favorite Girl Scout Cookies that are now retired?

Shortbread cookies are always a win. This Girl Scout Cookie was dipped in chocolate and it also had a friendly message on it. It had the words "Thank You" on it.

Ole Oles
These powdered sugar cookies were delicious. They also had pecans and coconut mixed in and were reduced fat.

Lemon Chalet Creme
This was one of my favorite lemon cookies to ever exist. How could a lemon sandwich cookie ever go wrong? The added cinnamon and ginger made it one of a kind.

I remember that these cookies were named after the founder of The Girl Scouts, Juliette Low. It reminded me of a chocolate turtle with its being covered in caramel, pecans and milk chocolate.

Ra Ra Raisens
This was unlike your ordinary raisin cookie. This Girl Scout Cookie brought in oatmeal and yogurt chips with the raisins.

Savannah Smiles
This Girl Scout Cookie knew how to put a smile on your face. They were lemon wedge cookies with powdered sugar.

Which Girl Scout Cookies Are Your Favorite?

I loved the Girl Scout Cookies that were discontinued but also enjoy the present day one as well.
