Girl Scouts annual cookie sale

Press Release_Girl Scout Cookies are an icon of American culture. They're also the backbone of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the leading entrepreneurial program for girls. February 13 marks the kick-off of the Annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale.

Once again, the Girl Scouts are offering everyone's favorite cookies:

  • Thin Mints - thin chocolate wafers dipped in a rich chocolaty coating with a burst of pure peppermint
  • Caramel deLites - vanilla cookies drenched in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut, topped with cocoa
  • Thanks-A-Lot - shortbread cookies dipped in rich fudge
  • Peanut Butter Sandwich - vanilla cookies layered with real peanut butter and blanketed with a chocolaty coating
  • Peanut Butter Sandwich - smooth peanut butter sandwiched between crunchy oatmeal cookies
  • Shortbread - traditional favorite with a buttery, light flavor
  • Lemonades - shortbread with a refreshingly tangy lemon icing
  • Daisy Go Rounds - crispy cinnamon flower shaped cookies bursting with flavor (reduced fat)

Customers anticipate the sale of cookies each year, and purchasing a box of cookies not only satisfies a sweet tooth, it helps girls! The activity of selling cookies is directly related to the Girl Scout mission of helping all girls realize their full potential and become strong, confident, and resourceful citizens. Through the Cookie Sale girls have the opportunity to discover their skills, connect through teamwork, and achieve their goals.

"The Council's annual cookie program makes girls mini business owners and fosters business and entrepreneurial development," said Becky Burton, CEO of Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains. "The cookie program proves to be an excellent primer for business and financial skills girls need in order to be more competitive in the workplace."

The cookie sale runs February 13 - March 29. All cookies are $3.50 per box, with all proceeds benefiting the local Girl Scout troops. Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's largest organization dedicated to helping all girls everywhere build character and gain skills for success in the real world. In an accepting and nurturing environment, and in partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop strong values, leadership skills, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and selfworth that will serve them all their lives.
