It’s Girl Scout Cookie Season!

It’s that time of the year again, Girl Scout Cookie Season! Girl Scouts raise funds for activities through successful fundraisers like selling cookies.

Girl Scout Cookies are a type of cookie sold by the Girl Scouts of the USA as a fundraising activity. Some of the most popular varieties include Thin Mints, Samoas, Trefoils, Tagalongs, and Do-si-dos.

The cookies are typically sold door-to-door by Girl Scouts or through annual cookie sales events and are known for their sweet, buttery flavor and variety of textures.

The top 3 cookies sold by the Girl Scouts of the USA are normally:

  1. Thin Mints – a crisp, chocolate-covered cookie with a mint filling
  2. Samoas – a chewy cookie with caramel, coconut, and chocolate coating
  3. Trefoils – a classic shortbread cookie with a light, buttery flavor.

Girl Scout cookie sales generate hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year, with the funds going toward supporting the organization’s programs, services, and activities.

A portion of the money raised through cookie sales is used to support local troop activities, such as camping trips, community service projects, and educational events.

The Girl Scouts of the USA was founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, Georgia.
