“It’s something that I’ve had on the back burner of my mind,” said Brianna Shore, who owns Arroyo Robles with her parents, Bob and Tanis Shore, and her brother, Jason Shore. Brianna said that her young son has friends in Girl Scouts so she was able to get a big enough order in time to have enough to use them in a special wine pairing.

- Thin Mints
- Caramel deLites/Samoas
- Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs
- Cranberry Citrus Crisps
