They are back and ready to be picked up.
Girl Scout cookies have arrived in southeast Louisiana, and members of Girl Scouts Louisiana East have been working to support the world’s largest girl entrepreneurship program.
In addition to old favorites, such as Thin Mints, Carmel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties, their bakers have added an online Raspberry Rally to the mix.
“We are excited for the 2023 cookie season to be our first since the pandemic began,” said Rebecca Pennington, CEO of Girl Scouts Louisiana East. “As always, the Southeast Louisiana community continues to support our Girl Scouts year after year, and we are excited that our Girl Scouts will be a part of this program in 2023.”
The newest online product is a thin, thin cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in chocolate similar to Thin Mints. This will be the first in a series that will be dedicated to online sales and direct delivery, promoting the girls’ e-commerce and marketing skills.
Girl Scouts is selling cookies through the Smart Cookie online platform for direct delivery or local delivery. From Feb. 17, consumers can enter their zip code to buy cookies online from a local military group for direct delivery or make a donation to a local charity. Customers can also visit the cookie finder at girlscoutcookies.org to find local locations to purchase cookies or use the Cookie Finder app.
Girl Scouts’ newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer business books for all ages. From the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned as a Daisy to Entrepreneur Accelerator for girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and decision making.
