Girl Scout Cookies


Since 1917, the Girl Scouts of the United States of America have been selling cookies to raise funds. Top sellers can earn prizes for their hard work and there are incentives for units as well. You can get the cookies from one of our local girl scouts. A box of cookies in Davis costs $4 as of 2013.

In 2013, Scouts were spotted going door-to-door as early as January 12.

Those who support rights of transgendered people may wish to buy [WWW]extra cookies this year.

Varieties Offered


The GSUSA requires licensed baking companies to offer Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and Shortbreads each year. Popular favorites such as Caramel Delites or Samoas and Peanut Butter Patties or Tagalongs are usually available each year as well. Other varieties offered vary from year to year and the exact names and compositions of the cookies differ depending on which baking companies are licensed. You can find ingredients and nutrition information on the [WWW]Girl Scout Cookies website. Predictably, they're about as loaded with calories and fat as they are delicious.

The following varieties are vegan: Thanks-a-lot, Lemonades, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties. All the Girl Scout cookies are Kosher.

They are now offering far fewer varieties than in previous years. Also, the boxes are smaller and some cookies are actually smaller than they used to be! Heresy! Delicious heresy.

Where to Buy

Usually you can find cookie booths in front of supermarkets and such sometime in February:

Or answer your door when the Girl Scouts come calling (or respond when your co-worker hits you up, or....)

Where to Eat

Strolling across the quad, with a partner in bed (watch out for crumbs), while bicycling (takes real skill), at your office desk. Somewhere right now, somebody is eating cookies. Yum.

Meanwhile troops are getting less and less money from the sales. If you really want to support a chapter, just donate money or time directly to them. Hell they can probably bake you a batch of cookies for less. —OliviaY
