Girl Guide cookie season is officially back in Greater Victoria, and those tasty, chocolatey, mint cookies are back as well after a two-year break.

Cases of cookies were loaded into cars and vans on Saturday morning by the pallet load from a warehouse in Langford, destined for guides across the region.

In total, 3,300 cases of 12 boxes of cookies each are being distributed in Greater Victoria, with more being distributed from other warehouses throughout the province.

The annual fall cookie sale is one of the major fundraiser events for troops across Canada, with the proceeds going toward everything from overnight adventures to art supplies, to purchasing the badges each guide earns for their accomplishments.
