The Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana council’s annual cookie sale, which kicked off in January, continues through March 3.

The sale teaches girls entrepreneurial and leadership skills that will help them succeed throughout life.

A new gluten-free cookie, the Caramel Chocolate Chip, will make its debut this year. Customers will also be able to choose from eight classic varieties – S’mores, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread, Caramel deLites, Lemonades and Thanks-A-Lot.

The cost per box is $4, and the new gluten-free cookie is $5 a box. All cookie proceeds stay local and help power new experiences for local Girl Scouts.
