History of Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies were sold by local councils
around the country until World
War II, when sugar, flour, and butter shortages led Girl Scouts to
begin selling calendars to raise money for activities.
After the war, cookie sales resumed, with the
national organization licensing local bakers to produce and package
cookies. By 1948, a total of 29 bakers were licensed to bake Girl
Scout Cookies. Now, there are just two: Little Brownie Bakers and

Q. How do I know how many
cases to order for my troop's initial order?
A. We recommend that troops order based
on their previous year's sales; the exact recommended amount is
listed on the customized letter from your SUCC. New troops: Your SUCC
will give you a recommended amount specific to your troop's
program grade level and based on troops' average sales from the
previous year (page 34).

Handbook for policies, procedures, and

When does Cookie Club open?
A. Cookie Club is currently open. Girls may begin
entering contacts as soon as they are set up however, "ask"
emails may not be sent until the cookie program begins on Feb. 2
Q. Which cookies do not contain
A. Trefoils and Thin Mints. Samoas are no longer
classified as nut-free due to the FDA's reclassification of coconut
as a tree nut.
Q. What if I see a troop/girl(s) violating
the event that a disregard of policy is observed, assume good intent
as mistakes happen to everyone. Simply ask (politely and
respectfully) for the girl's name and/or troop number and share it
with your SUCC and/or the Product Sales team via email@example.com.
No further action should be taken by the reporting party - troops/parents should not
attempt to resolve the issue themselves nor harass any other
girls/adults. Please remember to be honest and fair,
friendly and helpful, considerate and caring,
respectful of others, and a sister to every Girl Scout.
