The long anticipated season of Girl Scout Cookie sales is finally here. You’re likely to start seeing little green-sashed girls around your town, fundraising with the infamous cookies throughout the next several weeks. Selling cookies has been a top fundraising tool of the Girl Scouts of the USA association since 1917. The cookies we know and love today began being sold as early as 1936 and have come to be known and loved throughout the United States.
Girl Scout cookies are sold for only a few weeks out of each year, so now is the time to stock up on all your favorites. The cookies are sold by individual Girl Scout troops and are generally not available online. However, the Girl Scout organization has created a slick new website where you can find a troop selling cookies in your zip code. Boxes sell this year for $3.50 each. For details on how to find cookies in your neck of the woods, and to discover the new cookies introduced to the classic line of treats, keep reading!
