Girl Scout Cookie Program: ‘This is What a Girl Can Do’
LIMA – What can a girl do? A world of good! It’s Girl Scout cookie time, and this year is poised to be one of our 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, their family and the world.
By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop lifelong 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.
Beginning Friday, 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.
A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles. Additionally, there’s new packaging for all the cookie boxes, which highlight the skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. It’s the same great cookies, with a brand new look.
Girl Scouts 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 just 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 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.
Additionally, there’s still time to be a Girl Scout this year. Girls wishing to join are welcome and can also participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
