Soon enough, spring will be here before we know it. The Old Farmer's Almanac has made a prediction for Spring 2024's weather forecast.

I can always recall the excitement of Girl Scout cookie season.

Once a year, we're able to buy boxes of our favorite cookies from local Girl Scouts in our area.

Some of these cookies we may have indulged in for years and it becomes a tradition. There are also new cookies that have been added to the Girl Scout cookie lineup.

There's a sense of excitement, a thrill to buying Girl Scout cookies. At times, we may have to wait weeks to months to receive our favorite cookies. If you're lucky, you may catch a Girl Scout cookie group selling these delectable cookies outside of a business or in a shopping mall.

Who Are The Girl Scouts?

According to Girl Scouts,

For over 100 years, Girl Scouts have been enhancing their skills and serving the community. In the early 1900s, Girl Scouts would preserve vegetables and fruit due to the food shortages. By the late 1920's, Girl Scouts were selling cookies to customers with door-to-door service.

Today, Girl Scouts have advanced, cookies are also available for purchase online along with items for purchase in their online shop. Girl Scouts also now offer different kinds of cookies to allow foodies of all ages and dietary restrictions to indulge as well. 

Select Girl Scout Cookies are vegan, gluten free, kosher and halal certified.

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.

Eat Your Way Through The Hudson Valley With The Best Ice Cream

I have always enjoyed stopping by my favorite local ice cream shops and choosing a new flavor. Whether it's a hot fudge sundae, chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a cone, or an ice cream sandwich, count me in.

The Hudson Valley has strange ice cream flavors. From lemon poppyseed to thai iced tea and barn boots, there aren't any boring flavors in our area.

A 'Premiere' Hudson Valley treat shop was expanding their space during the winter months to prepare for a busy summer season.

Thankfully, we have a large selection of local ice cream shops to visit in the Hudson Valley.
