Cookie/Fall Products

No. We wish they were!

Each Girl Scout council has a slightly different cookie-selling season. GSNCA typically holds our sale the last week of December/first week of January through the first weekend in March. Check back on our homepage each December to find out the exact dates!

Q. Where can I buy Girl Scout Cookies?
Lots of places! Each year during cookie season, you will see a Cookie Locator button on our homepage. Click this button, enter your zip code, and you will be given a list of cookie sales nearest you. If you have an iPhone or an Android, you may also download the “Cookie Locator” app.

Q. Can I buy Girl Scout Cookies online?
No. The Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program is a Financial Literacy program that teaches girls how to manage money, set goals, create a business plan and more. Girls can market via email and social media, but they cannot sell via the internet.

Q. Where can I see the ingredients of Girl Scout Cookies?
Visit our baker’s website and click on the cookie you want to check out.

Q. I have a question/concern about my daughter’s cookie sale/proceeds. Who can help me?
First, have you contacted your troop’s cookie manager and/or your service unit cookie manager to resolve the question?  If you still need assistance, you can contact your Community Development Manager who will work with our fabulous Product Sales team.

Fundraising Questions
Q. I’ve got a great fundraising program where Girl Scouts can get a portion of the sales. How can we get your Council involved?
Girl Scouts do not sell items other than Girl Scout Cookies or Fall Products. Any troop fundraising projects other than the two council-sponsored sales are approved individually through our resource development department. If you’d like to donate a portion of your sales to the Girl Scouts, contact our director of resource development.
