It’s Girl Scout cookie time. 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, their 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.
Girls in western Ohio have been taking Girl Scout cookie orders. A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles. Additionally, there is new packaging for all cookie boxes, which highlight the skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
There are two new additions to the product line, Girl Scout snack bars. These snack bars come in two varieties—Double Dutch and Tagalongs, and are packed with wholesome ingredients like hearty rolled oats, crispy cereal flakes and chewy granola, with a drizzle of chocolate coating. Girl Scout snack bars are individually wrapped in packages of five. Girls from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio were used in marketing the Double Dutch snack bar.
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.
