Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famous for its award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, is celebrating its second National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, which kicks off on Friday, Feb. 7. The popular Girl Scout Thin Mints Cheesecake will be making a comeback along with a new Caramel deLites Cheesecake made from the delicious Caramel deLites cookie. The Girl Scout Thin Mints Cookie Cheesecake will be a chocolate mint cheesecake with pieces of Thin Mints cookie mixed in, a Thin Mints crust and topped with whipped cream. The Caramel deLites Cheesecake will be a caramel cheesecake topped with caramel glaze and toasted coconut, on top of a Caramel deLites cookie crust and finished with a chocolate drizzle and whipped cream. These special cheesecakes will be available at all Grimaldi’s Pizzeria restaurants for $5 a slice while supplies last. All proceeds from the sale of the Girl Scout Thin Mints Cookie Cheesecake and Caramel deLites Cheesecake will be donated to the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada.
We are pleased to partner again with the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada for National Cookie Weekend,” said Cory Lattuca, food & beverage director/corporate chef. “With the addition of the Caramel deLites Cheesecake along with the iconic Thin Mints Cheesecake we invite the community to taste these cheesecakes extraordinaire, where every delicious bite benefits girls in Southern Nevada.”
National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend runs from Friday, Feb. 7 – Sunday, Feb. 9 and will celebrate the Cookie Program – the largest girl-led financial literacy program in the country. As one of four key Girl Scout initiatives, Entrepreneurship and Financial Literacy, the program teaches girls goal-setting, decision making, money management, and business ethics. Sales of cookies will begin Feb. 7 throughout the Valley.
Girl Scout cookies are an important part of our financial literacy program for girls,” said Emily Smith, chief marketing and development officer, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. “We’re excited to kick-off the cookie sale in such a sweet way this year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has been a great partner with Girl Scouts, providing program opportunities and funding to supporting girl leadership in southern Nevada,”
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will continue to offer its traditional dessert menu for guests to choose from which includes: Tiramisu, Housemade Cheesecakes—New York Style or Oreo Cookie—priced at $5 each and Grimaldi’s Famous Cannoli for $4.50.
About Grimaldi’s Pizzeria:
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has five locations in Las Vegas and one in Sparks, Nev. Las Vegas locations include The Shoppes at The Palazzo, Rainbow and 215, Boca Park Fashion Village The Fashion Show Mall and Richmar Plaza.
