It’s January! Time to forget your New Year’s Resolutions and grab some Girl Scout Cookies.
Last year the $700 million cookie empire, unveiled a new treat – the S’mores Cookie. It was a huge hit, ranking up there with the classic Thin Mint and Samoa cookies.
This year they are bringing them back, in two delicious varieties.
The first cookie is a graham cracker with marshmallows, and chocolate layered on top.
The second is made of two graham cookies with chocolate and marshmallow filling in between.
Either way, they both look amazing.
If you’re among the 3.1 million Americans on a gluten-free diet, GET HYPE because there’s now a cookie for you – two, in fact!
The Toffee-Tastic is a buttery treat dotted with decadent pieces of toffee, perfect for killing your cookie cravings.
If you’re not a toffee lover, fear not! The Girl Scouts didn’t forget about you.
Check out the organization’s Trio cookies. Gluten-free peanut butter and oatmeal cookies chock-full of delightful chocolate chips.
Girl Scout Technology
Now, if you’re anything like me, finding time just to go grocery shopping is a hassle.
So, trying to find a grocery store where the Girl Scouts are selling cookies is the last thing I want to do after a long day at work.
Thankfully, the Girl Scouts understand my dilemma.
Look no further than their newly created Cookie Finder App!
The free app works with your GPS to find the closest path to those delicious morsels as possible.
You can even save the cookie sales date to your calendar!
But if you’d rather have the cookies delivered to you, there is an option for that as well.
The Girl Scout’s Digital Cookie program allows your local Girl Scout to sell by using a mobile app.
The program creates a personalized website for the scout to sell cookies from and helps to enhance her marketing skills and earn her cookie program badge.
From there, the scout can choose how she wants to invest her earnings back into her community by choosing from various channels.
The only catch to using this method is that a local troop must be using the program in order for us to benefit from it.
So, if your local scouts are participating in this program, deliciousness is just a click away.
Digital Girl Scout Cookies in Three Simple Steps:
First, the Girl Scout initiates a sale either online, via email or in person at a booth.
Then, you visit her personalized website and choose which cookies you’d like to enjoy. (One box, two boxes or, one of each – we don’t judge!)
Last, you place your order, pay using a credit card and choose to have your order shipped or hand delivered by a Girl Scout!
That’s it! Now the hard part begins – waiting for your Girl Scout Cookies to arrive.
While all this new time-saving technology is exciting, there’s nothing better than meeting the Girl Scouts face to face and connecting with the fantastic organization that you are supporting.
Remember that these tasty treats are only available for a limited time, don’t wait!
