Girl Scout Cookies are officially on sale, but the pandemic has put a twist on tradition.
For the first time ever, you can get your Girl Scout cookies in December by buying boxes online. It's apart of a soft launch, the organzation has put together to boost sales during the pandemic. Customers can pay to have their cookies shipped immediately, or pre-order Girl Scout cookies to have boxes delivered in mid-February for no shipping cost.
Girl Scout Cookies are $5 per box for the six main flavors or $6 for the two specialty flavors. (Remember that available varieties will vary by market.)
Although, the regular launch of cookie sales will take place in January.
All proceeds go to the local counties that have Girl Scout troops and help provide girls with premier leadership experience and scholarships. You can order online here.
Plus, the Cookie Finder is up and running.
Just enter your zip code in the "Find Cookies!" tool to get dates and locations for Girl Scout Cookie sales in your area!
Plus, there's an app for that. The official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app is ready to use. Just download and install the free app on your iOS or Android device and press "Find Cookies Now!" It works a lot like the website's Cookie Finder. Use the app to find the cookie booth closest to you (including the sale’s time, date, and location).
As always, Girls Scouts manage their own sales. So if you know a Girl Scout, tell her you're interested in buying cookies from her online, and she’ll take it from there! Note that girls’ participation in the digital platform will depend on their market area, and not all girls will participate.
