For a limited time, you can buy Girl Scout cookies at select locations in New York City
If you live in New York City, you can stock up on Girl Scout cookies at a few pop-up shops.
From now until May 8th, Girl Scout Cookie pop-up shops are open around New York City. If you’ve already depleted your supply of Thin Mints or your local fourth grader Girl Scout is kind of a bully, here’s a chance for those of you in the metropolitan area to get your fix.
There are currently three open locations where you can pick your favorite cookies: in Manhattan at the Girl Scouts of Greater New York Office on West 23rd Street (which is dangerously and amazingly close to The Daily Meal office), in Queens at the Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, and in Staten Island at the Staten Island Service Center.
The fourth location at the Brooklyn Cookie Cupboard is closed until further notice due to “unexpected circumstances.” A cookie stampede, perhaps? We may never know, but hopefully it will be back open before May.
If you don’t live in New York City, we’ve still got you covered! Check out our detailed slideshow of How to Make Girl Scout Cookies at Home, with detailed recipes. For those of you of drinking age, we’ve even got this compilation of Drinks that Taste Just Like Girl Scout Cookies. We'll never forget you, Girl Scout Cookies.

Girl Scout Cookie Pop Up Coming To Midtown Manhattan
MIDTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — With National Girl Scout Cookie Weeknd fast approaching, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York are organizing a cookie pop up shop in Midtown Manhattan.
The organization's Cookie Executive Committee — an all-star team of the group's best cookie sellers — will be running the pop up shop Friday, Saturday and Sunday out of the Girl Scouts of the USA building on Fifth Avenue and West 38th Street.
The pop up store will be located in a new retail space within the office building named Girl Scout Central, according to a press release. All of the favorite Girl Scout Cookies flavors such as Thin Mints, Samoas and Girl Scout S'Mores will be sold at the pop up store.
"For National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, some of NYC's top cookie entrepreneurs will show off the business skills and confidence they've gained from the Girl Scout Cookie Program," Girl Scouts of Greater New York CEO Meridith Maskara said in a statement. "For over a century, cookie customers have made this entrepreneurial learning opportunity possible, and we hope they come out and celebrate this weekend with us!"
It's Girl Scout Cookie season! Here's how to help a troop of homeless girls in NYC
That viral tweet you've seen is true: You can order Girl Scout cookies to support homeless girls in New York City.
Girl Scout Troop 6000 is tailor-made for girls in New York's shelter system. An estimated 70,000 people live in the city's homeless shelters the average stay is 18 months before families transition to permanent housing. During that transition, Troop 6000 helps girls enjoy close friendships and plenty of support.
If you need Girl Scout cookies this year and don’t have a local troop to support, please consider buying from Troop 6000, which is entirely made up of girls living in NYC’s homeless shelters. https://t.co/ySvlUGaqmt— Chris Darden (@cbdarden) January 28, 2021
Founded in 2017 by Giselle Burgess, a single mother of five who lost her home, Troop 6000 meets weekly in more than 20 shelters across all five boroughs of New York City. The "6" in the troop's name differentiates it from others in New York City’s five boroughs, which are labeled with 1000s, 2000s, 3000s, 4000s and 5000s.
"Our mission is to instill girls with courage, confidence and character,'' Burgess told TODAY in 2017.
Girl Scout Cookie History
An icon of American culture
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts and their enthusiastic supporters have helped ensure the success of the iconic annual cookie sale—and they’ve had fun, developed valuable life skills, and made their communities a better place every step of the way.
Girl Scout Cookies had their earliest beginnings in the kitchens and ovens of our girl members, with moms volunteering as technical advisers. The sale of cookies as a way to finance troop activities began as early as 1917, five years after Juliette Gordon Low started Girl Scouts in the United States, when the Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Oklahoma, baked cookies and sold them in its high school cafeteria as a service project.
In July 1922, The American Girl magazine, published by Girl Scouts of the USA, featured an article by Florence E. Neil, a local director in Chicago, Illinois. Miss Neil provided a cookie recipe that had been given to the council’s 2,000 Girl Scouts. She estimated the approximate cost of ingredients for six- to seven-dozen cookies to be 26 to 36 cents. The cookies, she suggested, could be sold by troops for 25 or 30 cents per dozen.
Throughout the decade, Girl Scouts in different parts of the country continued to bake their own simple sugar cookies with their mothers and with help from the community. These cookies were packaged in wax paper bags, sealed with a sticker, and sold door to door for 25 to 35 cents per dozen.
In 1933, Girl Scouts of Greater Philadelphia Council baked cookies and sold them in the city’s gas and electric company windows. The price was just 23 cents per box of 44 cookies, or six boxes for $1.24! Girls developed their marketing and business skills and raised funds for their local Girl Scout council. A year later, Greater Philadelphia took cookie sales to the next level, becoming the first council to sell commercially baked cookies.
In 1935, the Girl Scout Federation of Greater New York raised money through the sale of commercially baked cookies. Buying its own die in the shape of a trefoil, the group used the words “Girl Scout Cookies” on the box. In 1936, the national Girl Scout organization began the process of licensing the first commercial bakers to produce cookies that would be sold nationwide by girls in Girl Scout councils.
Enthusiasm for Girl Scout Cookies spread nationwide. By 1937, more than 125 Girl Scout councils reported holding cookie sales.
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 pivot, selling the first Girl Scout calendars in 1944 as an alternative to raise money for activities.
After the war, cookie sales increased, and by 1948, a total of 29 bakers were licensed to bake Girl Scout Cookies.
In 1951, Girl Scout Cookies came in three varieties: Sandwich, Shortbread, and Chocolate Mints (now known as Thin Mints). With the advent of the suburbs, girls at tables in shopping malls began selling Girl Scout Cookies.
Five years later, flavors had evolved. Girl Scouts sold four basic types of cookies: a vanilla-based filled cookie, a chocolate-based filled one, shortbread, and a chocolate mint. Some bakers also offered another optional flavor.
During the 1960s, when Baby Boomers expanded Girl Scout membership, cookie sales increased significantly. Fourteen licensed bakers were mixing batter for thousands upon thousands of Girl Scout Cookies annually. And those bakers began wrapping Girl Scout Cookie boxes in printed aluminum foil or cellophane to protect the cookies and preserve their freshness.
By 1966, a number of varieties were available. Among the best sellers were Chocolate Mint (now known as Thin Mints), Shortbread, and Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies.
In 1978, the number of bakers was streamlined to four to ensure lower prices and uniform quality, packaging, and distribution. For the first time in history, all cookie boxes—regardless of the baker—featured the same designs and depicted scenes of Girl Scouts in action, including hiking and canoeing. And in 1979, the brand-new, Saul Bass–created Girl Scout logo appeared on cookie boxes, which became even more creative and began promoting the benefits of Girl Scouting.
Girl Scout Cookies for sale during the 1970s included Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos ® , and Shortbread/Trefoils ® cookies, plus four additional choices.
In 1982, four bakers still produced a maximum of seven varieties of cookies—three mandatory (Thin Mint ® , Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos ® , and Shortbread/Trefoils ® ) and four optional. Cookie boxes depicted scenes of Girl Scouts in action.
In the early 1990s, two licensed bakers supplied local Girl Scout councils with cookies for girls to sell, and by 1998, this number had grown again to three. Eight cookie varieties were available, including low-fat and sugar-free selections.
GSUSA also introduced official age-appropriate awards for Girl Scout Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and Seniors, including the Cookie Activity pin, which was awarded for participating in the cookie sale.
Early in the twenty-first century, every Girl Scout Cookie had a mission. New cookie box designs, introduced in fall of 2000, were bold and bright, capturing the spirit of Girl Scouting. Two licensed bakers produced a maximum of eight varieties, including three that were mandatory (Thin Mints ® , Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos ® , and Shortbread/Trefoils ® ). All cookies were kosher. And, much to the excitement of our youngest Girl Scouts, Daisies started selling cookies!
With the announcement of National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend (the next one is February 23–25, 2018) and the introduction of our very first gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie, the decade was off to a big start. But the really big news was the launch of the Digital Cookie® platform in 2014. A fun, safe, and interactive space for girls to sell cookies, Digital Cookie takes the iconic cookie program digital and introduces Girl Scouts to vital 21st century lessons about online marketing, app usage, and ecommerce. But most importantly, Digital Cookie retains the one-to-one personal approach to selling that is essential to the success of the program and the girls who participate.
Who can forget the amazing moment in 2016 when Girl Scouts took the stage at the Academy Awards to sell cookies to Hollywood’s A-list? It was a stellar beginning to the nationwide celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies. That continued with the introduction of Girl Scout S’mores TM , which quickly became the most popular new cookies to launch in our history. And in 2020, our already iconic cookies reached a new level of awesome with incredible, brand-new packaging that puts goal-crushing Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneurs front and center and also showcases all of the amazing things girls learn and do through the Girl Scout Cookie Program and as Girl Scouts. Also new for 2020 is our Cookie Entrepreneur Family pin collection that makes selling Girl Scout Cookies a family affair!
Present Day- Planning for the future
After responding to the Trans-Fat controversy of 2005 (Girl Scout cookies, like almost everything else, contained Trans-Fats) by making their product more health-friendly and publishing the nutritional content of every variety on every box, National HQ stepped up their profile in the 21st Century. In a sign of embracing the marketing realities of today, cookies are sold online and scouts will be hawking cookies at "Pop Up Stores" in NYC through May.
11 Celebs Who Are Former Girl Scouts
From Alyson Hannigan and Katie Lee to Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey and Dakota Fanning, it’s clear that young Girl Scouts ultimately become fierce female leaders.
Host Alyson Hannigan with Girl Scouts Domenica Giammona and Olivia Altidor, as seen on Girl Scout Cookie Championship, Season 1.
Girl Scout Cookie Championship kicks off next Monday night (don’t miss it on February 3 at 8|7c) with five bakers battling in a series of sweet and demanding challenges. And yep, of course, there will be cookies — and actual Girl Scouts! The Girl Scouts visiting the show will be in good company as several members of the cast, plus more celebs you know and love, have revealed that they too are former Girl Scouts too.
Host Alyson Hannigan revealed to us that she was a Girl Scout as a kid. Though she looks back on the experience fondly, she’s quick to tell a funny story about supposedly losing a cookie order sheet many years ago. It turns out, though, that it was her mom — not her! — who actually misplaced the order sheet. (At least she’s able to laugh about it today, right?!)
Girl Scouts to sell cookies online for first time in 100-year history
A Girl Scout sells cookies from a truck in New York City on February 8, 2013.
Samoas and Thin Mints could be coming to your inbox soon. Girl Scouts of the USA announced Digital Cookie on Monday, a new digital platform that allows Girl Scouts to sell cookies online.
It's a move to get girls interested in computers at a young age. Girl Scouts has always touted the cookie program as a way to lay the groundwork for good business and negotiation skills, and the digital program is modernizing those skills. The cookie program has a 100-year history, but the Internet, of course, has only been available for the last 15 or so years. This is the organization's first widespread adoption of the web as means to sell cookies.
Digital Cookie will not be an online store for cookies, however. As a precaution, Girl Scouts will initiate all sales . So you won't be able to order cookies online unless you're directly contacted by a Girl Scout. This does not change typical cookie season timelines, either.
The program is supposed to help teach girls five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. As a bonus, it's also meant to give girls experience in using apps and online marketing.
There are some concerns about girls' safety, and beyond the fact that only Girl Scouts can initiate sales, the organization is taking numerous precautions. No sensitive information about the girls is kept online, and most actions that happen on the digital interface must be parent-approved. Girl Scouts can reach out to people by email, and only that recipient can access the girl's profile. If the email is forwarded, the link to the Girl Scout's profile will be broken, a Girl Scouts representative told Mashable.
Not all Girl Scouts will have access to Digital Cookie, either. Girl Scouts belong to a council that makes decisions for the troop, and whether the digital sales service is implemented is decided on a council-by-council basis, so this isn't a unanimous change. Those Girl Scouts enrolled in the program will also have the new option of taking in-person orders using an app and credit card reader with a tablet.
It's estimated that one million Girl Scouts will begin selling cookies using the new system.

Girl Scout cookie prices are rising in these areas — here's why
Want to see evidence of inflation? Look no further than the Girl Scouts.
After years of holding prices steady, more Girl Scout councils are boosting cookie prices to $5 a box.
"The No. 1 factor was us hearing feedback from adult volunteers that girls had such a great experience selling cookies, but they weren't earning enough money from them," said Jan Goldstein, chief marketing officer at Girls Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, in a phone interview.
Goldstein's council is raising the price to $5 per box from $4, the first hike in at least eight years. With the increase, the council's troops will now receive an average of 90 cents per box of cookies, up from an average of 62 cents per box.
The Girl Scouts organization is divided into 112 local councils, which set their own cookie pricing based on factors that include ingredients, market size and availability, and shipping costs. As a result, prices fluctuate by region and year.
For Goldstein's region, the round $5 number makes it easier for girls to sell the cookies without keeping track of loose change, while the 25 percent jump means the council can head off future increases for a longer time.
"We don't want to be making an announcement once every few years," Goldstein said.
The Eastern Massachusetts group will be joining at least two other councils, both in California, in raising prices this year.
But these groups aren't the first to breach the $5 mark. Girl Scouts in high cost-of-living areas such as California and Hawaii were already offering $5 cookies.
Before this season's increase, the Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast had not boosted prices in a decade, wrote Tammy Gentry, its vice president of marketing, in an email.
"The council sees the increase as an opportunity to offset natural price increases for running the cookie program — from the cost of raw materials and bakery production to transportation," Gentry said.
About 70 percent of proceeds go to the councils and the troops while the remainder goes to the baker, Gentry said.
The Girl Scouts San Gorgonio Council in California debated an increase since 2013, but made the move ahead of the 2016 season. The increase to $5 from $4 is its first since 2004.
With these two councils' decision, all of California will be at the $5 mark, wrote Elizabeth Locke-Thomas, the council's executive vice president, in an email.
Maintaining the $4 price point was something the council just could not do any longer, "as the cost of the cookies from our distributor continues to rise as does infrastructure costs and, most importantly, programmatic costs," said Locke-Thomas.
While the 25 percent hike might seem steep, it is actually smaller than overall cookie inflation. Since 2004, cookies prices have jumped 32 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Girl Scouts Launch National Girl Scout Cookie Day, Make Changes to Boxes
According to the New York Times Diner's Journal, the Girl Scouts are getting even more serious about their cookies this year. They even created their own day to celebrate, which is today, February 8. That's right, today has been officially dubbed National Girl Scout cookie day by the higher-ups in the land of cookie gold.
To celebrate, the Girl Scouts are rolling out a brand new social media campaign, new cookie boxes, and their very own Cookie Day truck.
Fox News reports that the Girl Scouts will live tweet throughout the day with the hashtag #5skills to demonstrate the qualities that they each learn to become what the company has dubbed a "cookie professional." The skills, which reflect the new up-to-date slogan, "this is what a girl can do," are: goal setting, decision-making, money management, business ethics, and people skills. They will also be portrayed on the brand new cookie box designs, which mark the first change to the packaging since 1999.
The plan to modernize cookie sales also involves a cookie truck, which will make its way around New York City giving away free samples and selling boxes in honor of National Girl Scout Cookie Day. Don't worry if you're not located in New York the Girl Scouts have thought of everything this year. They are also re-launching a Cookie Finder app, which allows potential cookie customers to find their nearest local council sale as well as when future sales will take place. The new version of the app also incorporates videos reiterating the five special skills.
It's no surprise that the Girl Scouts are updating their cookie methodology. The cookie program is worth a whopping $790 million, with an average of 200 million boxes sold per year. It is typically the only fundraising activity in which troops are involved.
Will you buy a box of cookies to honor National Girl Scout Cookie Day? Do you like the modernization of cookie sales or do you prefer the door-to-door method?

A cookie season like no other
Girl Scouts in the Atlanta area aren't alone in their quest to sell boxes of cookies that were left at the end of a unique season. A Girl Scouts USA spokesperson told TODAY that it's a widespread reality for many troops across the country.
"While Girl Scout Cookie season 2021 hasn’t ended yet and will continue into May in some markets, we can share that 2021 sales have been down nationally from years past. This is largely due to the fact that, historically, the majority of cookie sales come from girls selling in-person vs digital - whether that be a physical booth, selling cookies at a family member’s workplace, or going door-to-door in the community," they wrote in an email.
Troops across the country have been focused on the safety of their members and this cookie season posed a series of challenges that made in-person sales rather difficult.
"Nevertheless, the barriers inspired us all to get really creative, which is exactly what the girls did. There are many examples of the ways that girls devised creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe, including drive-through and virtual cookie booths on social media," the spokesperson continued.
The organization also teamed up with Grubhub to provide girls another way to facilitate contact-free cookie orders.
The proceeds from each box of cookies stays local and benefits Girl Scout troops across the country, so the current cookie conundrum is about more than just unsold boxes.
"Girl Scout councils use the earnings to deliver life-changing programming to 1.7 million girls across the country, and girls decide how to use their portion of the earnings for a range of experiences—from adventure-packed camping and canoeing, to exploring space science and designing robots, to taking meaningful action to improve their communities," said the spokesperson.

Priti Patel: Britain must replace ‘broken’ immigration system with ‘firm but fair’ approach
Britain's immigration system is too confusing and needs to be replaced with one that is fair but firm, the Home Secretary will say on Monday. It comes after Priti Patel revealed on Sunday that the immigration legislation and rules were 500 pages long and that the Home Office was in the process of simplifying them. She said Monday's announcement was based on the "digitalisation of our borders, but also the simplification of our immigration laws". Ms Patel told Trevor Phillips on Sunday that the digitalisation of borders would enable the department to "upstream checks", which she said was "important in terms of criminality". She will use her keynote speech at a conference to pledge a wholesale reform of the UK's "broken" immigration system by implementing a "fully digital border" within five years. She will also launch a US-style Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) which requires visitors to the UK to obtain an electronic permit before travelling. The Home Office said it would make the border more secure, with automated checks to prevent foreign criminals travelling to the country while enabling the Government to count who is coming in and going out. ETAs will be required by anyone without a visa or immigration status, although they will not be needed by Irish citizens, with ministers promising that the system will be operational by the end of 2025. During her speech, Ms Patel will say anything less than "wholesale reform" of the immigration system would not meet the demands of the public. She will say: "They want a new system that works for the law-abiding majority and against those who hope to abuse our hospitality and generous spirit. The immigration system is broken, but this country isn't. We can't fix the system overnight, but we will fix it." The Home Secretary will stress that the system will need to reflect "the values and wishes of the vast majority of Britons of all colours and creeds" and will add: "They simply want an approach to immigration that is fair but firm." It comes after the Government set out plans in the Queen's Speech earlier this month to toughen laws to deny refugee status to any asylum-seekers who have passed through a safe country before reaching the UK. The proposal was condemned by the United Nations refugee agency and charities who said it would be a betrayal of Britain's historic tradition of providing protection to people fleeing persecution. On Sunday, Ms Patel defended the plan, saying many asylum-seekers arriving in the UK had been smuggled by people traffickers. She said: "People that are being smuggled, they should be claiming asylum in the first safe country that they travel through – more often than not these are EU member states – rather than taking the risk of coming to the United Kingdom." However, Nick Thomas-Symonds, the shadow home secretary, said the Conservatives had had 11 years to fix a system that they "broke". "Clearly people who have no right to be in this country shouldn't be here, but what we have seen from the Home Office is utter incompetence on this," he said. "What we don't want to see is the Government deflecting blame for their own failure when it's their incompetence, their management and mismanagement of the Home Office that has been the problem."

Russia and China will ➾have responsibly', First Sea Lord says, as Carrier Strike Group sets sail
Russia and China are expected to "behave responsibly" and not respond recklessly to Britain's aircraft carrier, the First Sea Lord has said, as Britain’s Carrier Strike Group sets sail on its first deployment. Britain’s new flagship aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, left Portsmouth on Saturday night to lead six Royal Navy ships, a Royal Navy submarine, a US Navy destroyer and a frigate from the Netherlands in the largest concentration of maritime and air power to leave the UK in a generation. The seven-month global deployment is the UK Carrier Strike Group’s maiden operational deployment. The nine ships, plus 32 aircraft and 3,700 personnel, will route through the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean and on to the Indo-Pacific. Given the proximity to Russian forces in the Black Sea and Beijing’s assertive claims to disputed areas in the South China Sea, international tensions could be inflamed.

She told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that she hopes the bargaining continues, but acknowledged the two sides are "still pretty far apart" because of "fundamental differences" about the definition of infrastructure, and the total cost of the package, even after President Biden trimmed the proposal down by more than $500 billion last week.

New York City’s youngest entrepreneurs have two new ways to sell their yummy goods this year.
The Girl Scouts are hitting the road with a truck traveling through all five boroughs and they’ll be running a pop-up store in Manhattan featuring Thin Mints, S’mores, Trefoils and their other crave-worthy cookies.
These latest efforts should make it easier than ever for New Yorkers to get their cookie fix while teaching the Girl Scouts about some new business models, said Meridith Maskara, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York.
“What do you see in the New York market? You see pop-up shops and mobile food trucks,” said Maskara. “These are the trends and the girls are innovating, while following business trends.”

The pop-up store at 1590 Lexington Ave. opened on March 8 and is selling cookies Wednesdays through Sundays through May 4.
It’s operated by Girl Scouts on weekends and after-school hours.
The first-ever mobile cookie truck is currently operating on weekends and can be tracked through social media at @GirlScoutsNYC and the hashtag #GScookietruckNYC or by using the online Girl Scout Cookie finder.
Girl Scouts of Greater New York serves 31,000 girls in 1,800 troops across the five boroughs. Last year, members collectively sold 1.4 million boxes of cookies. This year’s goal is 1.5 million.
Girls from the different troops will take turns hosting the truck and making sales to fund their programming and volunteer work.
