Girl Scout cookies go on sale this Friday


Cookie customers and the public can ask Girl Scouts for a secret code and enter it at a special link online for a chance to win the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Car.

Starting on January 12, Girl Scouts in Louisiana will begin selling Girl Scout cookies. "After the initial orders comes in, the cookies are available the twenty-first of February".

If you're not in the San Jacinto area, however, there are plenty of ways to give back while getting your cookie fix this year. "The paperwork needs around by March 25". The act of selling cookies is not just about fundraising but also learning skills based in responsibility and independence.

According to the Girl Scouts, the Cookie Program started in 1917 as a way to finance troop activities. Some troops use it to pay their registration for the next year, some use it to buy uniforms, some use it to travel.

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas counts 15,000 members and covers a large swath, extending to the state lines of Oklahoma and Louisiana and south almost to Waco. In 1922, the organization's cookie recipe and business plan were shared and in 1925 the scouts' S'mores recipe was first published.

Marketing and Communications Specialist Shannon Peterson with Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska says this year's cookie line-up will not only feature everyone favorites, but will also see the return of last year's popular addition. Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership experience in the world.
