Girl Scout Inspired Cookie Shakes Return To P'unk Burger To Support Local Girls Empowerment Programs
Relive the favorite flavors of your childhood with four Girl Scout inspired cookie milkshakes at P'unk Burger at 1823 East Passyunk. Passyunk's organic burger, fries and shake shop announces four limited edition cookie shakes that all feature Girl Scout cookies through March 31, 2019. Shakes will include toasted coconut and caramel sea salt, campfire s'mores, chocolate peanut butter and jelly, and mint cookie. On Saturdays and Sundays during March (at various times), local Girl Scouts will sell cookies in front of the eatery. P'unk Burger will also donate 100% of quarters from the P'unk Burger Arcade to support Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania's Girl Experience and Outreach Programming.
"Supporting the Girl Scouts, especially during Women's History Month, is so important to me as a female business owner and a mother of six girls (with another baby on the way)," said owner Marlo Dilks. "Anything that helps girls realize their potential is worth investing in. In today's climate, we have to do all we can to prop up and empower girls to give them the tools to break the glass ceiling and achieve their dreams. I am so fortunate to be on East Passyunk with 55 other female-owned businesses. I want to inspire the next generation of leaders, business owners, and entrepreneurs."
Although Marlo was never been a Girl Scout herself, as a parent and small business owner, she realizes how important the sense of purpose that the Girl Scouts provides for young girls really is. She feels that organizations like the Girl Scouts are more important now than ever before.
"With the ever-increasing pressure to have both parents work outside the home, kids are far too often left behind to roam. Organizations like this help give kids something good to do. They help them to take interest in things and to stay focused," says Dilks.
On top of supporting local troops in South Philadelphia and Dilks' local neighborhood through cookie sales, she will also invite Girl Scouts to sell outside the store all month on weekends. Every quarter from the P'unk Burger Arcade in March will also be donated to Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania's Girl Experience and Outreach Programming. Dozens of games are available in the Mini-Moo Pasture where the games exist. Top hits are Burger Time, of course, and Pacman, Ms. Pacman, Galaga, and many more classics. Each and every month, P'unk donates 100% of quarters to a different charity.

Campfire Cookie Shake - A chocolate whiskey will enhance the sweet marshmallow and chocolate flavors of the s'more
Mint Cookie Shake - An Irish whiskey like Tullamore Dew is spicy enough to not be overpowered by the mint in the shake
