It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time

DAYTON – What can a girl do? A world of good! It’s Girl Scout cookie time and this year is poised to be one of the best years yet. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-run business in the world and it empowers girls with the strength, abilities and drive they’ll need to become accomplished women who benefit themselves, family and the world.

By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop life-long skills that increase their self-confidence and add new dimensions to their lives. Through the program, girls are presented opportunities to learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Additionally, girls help earn their own way and contribute to the troop/group and council support, as all Girl Scout Cookie Program proceeds stay in the community.

On Jan. 4, girls in western Ohio will begin taking Girl Scout cookie orders. Girl Scouts of Western Ohio will be offering customers a premium selection of the best selling Girl Scout cookies. Six Girl Scout cookies are offered – Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles. Additionally, they have new packaging for all of the cookie boxes, which highlight the skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. It’s the same great cookie, with a brand new look.

Girl Scout of Western Ohio is also excited to announce two new additions to the product line. This year, they are introducing Girl Scout snack bars. These snack bars are perfect for on-the-go snacking. They’re packed with wholesome ingredients like hearty rolled oats, crispy cereal flakes and chewy granola. For a touch of decadence, there’s the right amount of chocolaty-smooth coating – a dip for the bottom and a drizzle for the top. There are two varieties – Double Dutch and Tagalongs. Girl Scout snack bars are individually wrapped in packages of five. Girls from Girls Scouts of Western Ohio were used in marketing the Double Dutch snack bar.

Girl Scout cookies are a familiar part of American culture. For more than 80 years, Girl Scouts with the enthusiastic support of their families have helped ensure the success of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Roni Luckenbill, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio CEO, states, “From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, the sale of cookies has helped Girl Scouts have fun and develop valuable life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and team work. Girls Scout then use the money they have earned from the sale to support their local communities, thus making the world a better place.”

Additionally, there’s still time to be a Girl Scout this year. Girls wishing to join are welcome and can participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Girl Scout cookies and snack bars are made by Little Brownie Bakers. The cookies are available in the six flavors and are selling for $3.50 a box. The snack bars come in two flavors and are selling for $4 a box.
