Lemonades Ice Cream

A good way to cool off in the summer is with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. An even better way to cool off is with Girl Scout Lemonades ice cream!

S’mores

Enjoy a Girl Scout tradition by the campfire! On a cool fall evening, gather your troop together and warm up with this sweet treat. Replace the graham cracker with  Trefoils, Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, or even do a double s’mores with our newest cookie, the Girl Scout S’mores Cookie!

Thin Mint Cocoa

A popular way to enjoy Thin Mints, especially when it’s warm, is to pop them in the freezer. You can also enjoy them in the winter too with a nice cup of hot cocoa.

Girl Scout Cookies are more than just a sweet treat! Not only does every cookie purchase give girls an opportunity to develop important financial skills like goal setting, and money management, but it also powers fun and amazing experiences. And the best part? Girl Scouts get to choose what they do with their cookie proceeds!

From community service projects to traveling and experiencing new places, the possibilities are endless! Check how these Girl Scouts are taking action and making a difference in their communities with cookie proceeds:

Troop #1625 Helps Out a Girl Scout Sister
After learning that a Girl Scout sister and troop leader’s father’s house caught on fire, and they lost almost everything, Troop #1625 donated some of their cookie proceeds to help this family rebuild their home where they can make new memories together.

Troop #285 Explores the Appalachian Trail
Talk about Cookie Bosses! Troop #285 sold almost 10,000 boxes of cookies to fund a backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail! The girls purchased ultralight gear and spent four days on the trail. They even biked 20 miles on the Virginia Creeper Trail and reached the summit of Mt. Rogers, the highest point in Virginia at 5,728 feet. How awesome! These rising 6th and 7th graders became proficient in setting up their tents, meal planning and cooking, gear selection, packing their bags, and the Leave No Trace principles.

Troop #1625 Gives to Ronald McDonald House Residents
Girl Scout Brownie Troop #1770 used some of their Cookie Program proceeds to buy supplies and prepare Baby Shower Bags and Sibling Kits for the Ronald McDonald House. The Baby Shower Bags contained items that a family would need to care for a new born baby and the Sibling Kits contained items to entertain young children at the Ronald McDonald house while their siblings are in the hospital.
