Why hello there, have you heard? The Girl Scout Cookies are back! In case you don’t know, Girl Scouts consists of cute, young, little girls going door to door, landing on your front step, and asking if you would be so kindly as to buy their cookies. Most of the time people say yes, others say absolutely not, yet the better question is “Who can resist Girl Scouts.” The world may never know. Many Girl Scout Cookies sell in your nearest supermarket so when you see those delicious, remember that for a great cause, you should go buy some or many. Totally up to you. All of the money raised- 100% of it- goes to their local council and military troops. The rest of the money left will either be donated to a worthy cause or fund a project that will improve a community. Unfortunately, Girl Scout Cookies aren’t always there since they are seasonal. Fortunately, they are in season right now.

         All of the Girl Scout Cookies include:

  • Girl Scout S’mores
  • Thin Mints
  • Caramel Delights
  • Peanut Butter Patties
  • Shortbread/Trefoils
  • Do-si-dos/ Peanut Butter Sandwich
  • Lemonades
  • Savannah Smiles
  • Thanks-A-Lot
  • Toffee-tastic
  • Trios

   Fun Fact: The Thin Mints are actually the most popular cookies.

         Since reading about Girl Scout Cookies and how delicious they sound and are, here are some more facts about G.S.C that you didn’t or did know:

  • Since 1999, every year Girl scout Cookies bring in about $700 million in revenue.
  • Girl Scout Cookies have started with a small troop holding a small bake sale selling cookies, in 1917.
  • Depending on your local council, G.S.C will call their cookies either by their literal or creative names.
  • In 1933, you could buy 44 cookies for 23 cents.
  • Depending on the number of boxes they sold and how much money they earned, certain Girl Scouts get awarded special items, at the end of the season.
  • Once, in 1985, a 13 year old girl sold more than $25,000 worth of Girl Scout Cookies.
  • There had been many failed flavors of cookies.
