Girl Scout Cookie Sales Kick Off Today

Girl Scout Cookies are back for the season, with sales kicking off today.

Cookie varieties this year include Thin Mints, Samoas, Adventurefuls, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Lemon-Ups, and Girl Scout S’mores. The traditional flavors are $5 per package. Local Girl Scouts are also selling the gluten-free Toffee-tastic cookie for $6 per package.

And the new Raspberry Rally cookie will be introduced on February 27th, when shipping opens up on Digital Cookie! This new cookie is only available through Digital Cookie while supplies last. Customers can also order all of their favorite cookie flavors to be shipped directly to their homes at this time as well.

If you know a Girl Scout, she will have an order card with all of your favorite cookie flavors, or she will be collecting orders on her Digital Cookie website. The cookies will be delivered in mid-February. 

And Cookie Booths will start popping up around the area at local retailers and community events in mid-February too.

Throughout the 2023 cookie season, Girl Scouts will also be collecting cookie donations for Care to Share. This program was introduced as a way for girls to support their communities through entrepreneurship. Cookies purchased through Care to Share go directly to military personnel and local essential workers through organizations like Iowa’s Bravest, Riverbend Troop Support, and Soldier’s Angels. In 2022, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois donated 26,000 packages of cookies, and Girl Scouts are looking to surpass this number of donations in 2023.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls, and Girl Scouts’ newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer entrepreneurial playbooks for every age level. From the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned by kindergartners to the Entrepreneur Accelerator for girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and confident decision-making.
