Ingredient shortage delaying Girl Scout cookies

It’s that time of year. Girl Scouts are out and about selling cookies. However, if you place an order, you may experience a delay.

Little Brownie Bakers are responsible for baking the cookies. At the moment, they are dealing with an ingredient shortage. That shortage is causing the delays, which are expected to last about a month.

Brenda Episcopo, CEO of Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York, tells NewsChannel 13 their baker said last week they’re unable to access a key ingredient for two cookies.

The ingredient is called sweet milk. It’s used for Samoas and Trefoils.

Orders are on hold until that ingredient becomes available.
