Girl Scout Cookie Season Starts Next Week With a New Lemon Cookie
Update: According to a representative at Girl Scouts, the Lemon-Ups will sadly not be in the West Texas area.
"Unfortunately, we are not offering the new Lemon-Up cookie," said Katelyn Scott, Marketing & Communications Team Lead at Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains. "There are two different bakers that produce Girl Scout Cookies for 111 Girl Scout councils across the country. Little Brownie Bakers (LBB) did come out with a new Lemon-Up cookies this year; however, our council partners with ABC Bakers, and we are offering the Lemonade cookie, which is not a new cookie."
Lubbock will see the return of long-time favorite cookies: Lemonades, Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, and Peanut Butter Patties.
The Girls Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains serves 81 counties across Texas and Oklahoma, including the cities of Fort Worth, Lubbock, Amarillo, Abilene, and Wichita Falls.
Scott clarified that Girl Scouts cookies fans can still buy Lemon-Up cookies, but they would need to do so directly from a registered Girl Scout from one of the areas carrying them. For example, if you know a Girl Scout in a city that does have the Lemon-Up cookies, you can get them from her.
Original story: Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains will start the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie season on Friday, January 17th. A new cookie joins the line-up this season. The new addition for lemon lovers, Lemon-Ups, is much like the popular Lemonade flavor, but will feature an imprinted message of inspiration.

This year, prices for a box of cookies will be increased by one dollar: $5 for general cookies, and $6 for specialty cookies. The increased price will also increase the amount that troops receive. Purchasing Girl Scout cookies means that you're helping to fund year-round experiences for troops in our community.
Be on the lookout for booths popping up around Lubbock next week. An app is available to help locate your favorite cookies or you can search online by clicking here.
Cookies can also be ordered online if the Girl Scout is participating in the Smart Cookies program. Just ask a Girl Scout that you know if she is using the platform to be able to order unlimited amounts of sweet, yummy goodness.
