Girl Scout Cookies

Published on: February 09, 2014


When you see happy little faces standing in front of the grocery store or when you hear a knock on your door, it’s hard to say “no” to Girl Scouts selling cookies. Famous girls such as Taylor Swift, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow and Hillary Clinton were all scouts–and look where they are now!

Girl Scout Cookies Weekend (Feb. 8-9, 2014) launches Girl Scout cookie sales, the biggest fundraiser for most scout troops. The sales event goes from Jan. 26 to March 9, 2014. Cost per box: $4 retail. Scouts receive over 60% or approx. $2.80 per box.

According to Interbake Foods which operates ABC Bakers division contracted by Girl Scouts to produce and private-label the Girl Scout Cookies brand, their company has a comprehensive program to encourage goal setting and marketing so youngsters and teens learn how to succeed in sales. A 10-year-old Girl Scout near Perris, Calif. sold over 4,000 boxes of cookies and won a trip to the cookie factory in Iowa as top-seller! Money raised by scout troops may fund field trips, outings, craft & supplies, and service projects such as care boxes sent to military overseas. If you don’t want cookies, you can donate cash.

COOKIES: According to ABC Bakers they are one of two companies in the U.S. manufacturing Girl Scout Cookies. They are required each year to produce several top-selling items such as Thin Mints and Caramel deLites.  All cookies are kosher, and some are vegan and/or gluten-free.   For cookie locations see:
