Chocolate South celebrates Girl Scout Day, March 12

Chocolate South owner Amy Stankus shows off her Girl Scout sash.
Girl Scout cookie season is in full swing, and Wednesday, March 12 marks the 102nd anniversary of the institution's founding. Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah in 1912 and selling cookies entered the scene in 1917. Chocolate South, Atlanta’s own sweet leader, is honoring Girl Scouts of all ages. The first 20 current Girl Scouts (age 18 or younger) who come into the store on Girl Scout Day, March 12 wearing their Girl Scout uniform will receive a free Scout bonbon. The confection is a trail mix rival of milk chocolate, roasted almonds, orange zest and organic cranberries topped with candied almonds. The first 10 former Girl Scouts (over 18 years old) who bring in their badge, sash or a photo of themselves in their Girl Scout uniform will receive both a free Scout bonbon AND a free cup of REV Coffee.
