They’re back and ready to be gobbled.
Girl Scout cookies have hit southeast Louisiana, and the members of the Girl Scouts Louisiana East will be out in force to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.
In addition to the old favorites, like Thin Mints, Carmel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties, their bakers have added an online exclusive Raspberry Rally to the mix.
“We are excited for the 2023 cookie season to be our first normal season since the start of the pandemic,” said Rebecca Pennington, CEO of Girl Scouts Louisiana East. “As always, the southeast Louisiana community continues to support our Girl Scouts year over year, and we are excited for the opportunities our Girl Scouts will have during this program in 2023.”
The new online exclusive is a thin, crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same chocolaty coating as the Thin Mints. This will be the first in the lineup to be exclusively offered for online sale and direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills.
The Girl Scouts are selling cookies via the Smart Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. Beginning Feb. 17, consumers can enter their zip code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes. Consumers can also visit the cookie finder at girlscoutcookies.org to locate a local booth to purchase cookies or use the Cookie Finder app.
Girl Scouts’ newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer entrepreneurial playbooks for every age level. From the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned as a Daisy to the Entrepreneur Accelerator for girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and decision making.
