Girl Scouts of Orange County is unveiling a brand new cookie, the Mango Crème with Nutrifusion, which combines a delicious tropical treat that’s packed with great taste and vitamins.  In addition, Girl Scout Cookies will feature the first package redesign since 1999.  The new packaging highlights the skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.  A new marketing campaign reinforces this more contemporary message with the theme, “This Is What a Girl Can Do.” And, for ease of purchase, customers can now find their Girl Scout Cookies using a free app available for iPhone or Android, or by visiting the Girl Scout Cookie Booth Locator after February 8 at www.cookiesoc.org.
