Oh, How sweet it is: Girl Scout Cookie Season is back!

Girl Scouts of Nassau County recently announced the exciting return of the Girl Scout Cookie Program for the 2022 season.

The 2022 cookie lineup includes all the fan favorites—Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Do-si-dos®, Trefoils®, Lemon-Ups®, Girl Scout S’mores®, and Toffee-tastic®. All cookie lovers will be able to purchase boxes from their local Girl Scouts during the cookie season currently running through April 3.

For more than 100 years, this iconic program has helped Girl Scouts gain first-hand entrepreneurial experiences by setting sales goals, challenging them to be resourceful, and developing new and creative ways to reach customers.

In doing so, they develop money management, public speaking, and decision-making skills that become essential tools for both their personal and professional future—in addition to bringing joy to everyone around them.

“The Girl Scout Cookie Program presents Girl Scouts with a unique opportunity to learn through hands-on experience how to bring a business idea to life and manage their own business,” said Randell M. Bynum, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “They must bring communication techniques, digital tools, and strategies together to achieve a set goal. I encourage everyone to show their support for our Girl Scouts across Nassau County by placing an order of their favorite flavors during this cookie season.”

According to recent surveys of current Girl Scouts, over 75 percent of Girl Scouts are interested in becoming an entrepreneur or starting their own company. Also, 90 percent of Girl Scouts alumni have reported that the skills they learned from the cookie program directly helped them build success in their professional endeavors.

“During this time of the year, the community has the unique opportunity to help support Girl Scouts’ for a lifetime by purchasing their favorite cookies,” said Bynum. “Coupled with the many initiatives and activities Girl Scouts offer every day that promote social, emotional, and academic wellbeing, Girl Scouts are poised to be the leaders of tomorrow.”

Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. Customers who would like to support their local Girl Scouts can purchase cookies in person or online via the Digital Cookie platform that includes direct delivery.

Another way to support Girl Scouts is by purchasing cookies to donate to GSNC’s Gift of Caring programs, including Hometown Heroes and Operation Cookie where they can donate Girl Scout Cookies to first responders, doctors, nurses, retail employees, servicemen and women, and other people who put themselves in harm’s way to keep our communities safe and going.
