Your support helps us spread the word that buying Girl Scout cookies is more than just handing over money for a box. It's about the skills and learning a girl gains from interacting directly with you.It's about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others.It's the reason we don't sell cookies online. And it's why we encourage you to buy your cookies from a Girl Scout. I guess some parents just don't understand what being a Girl Scout is all about...
If your daughter does't knock on my door, don't expect me to buy cookies from her....It is that simple....
We are allowed to advertise our cookies online and deliver them. My daughter's co-leader is the one who suggested that I put the Girl Scout cookies up on these local websites.
Our council's website is temporarily down, but I found some information for you on the Girl Scouts of Northern California's website:
"Why don't you sell Girl Scout cookies online?
National Girl Scout policy prohibits the sale of Girl Scout Cookies on the internet. The safety of our girls is always our chief concern. Girl Scout Cookie activities are designed to be face-to-face learning experiences for girls. In an online setting, there is no guarantee that the seller is indeed a girl member of Girl Scouts. Girls may advertise cookies online and by email, but not exchange money.
If you dont know any Girl Scouts you can still buy Girl Scout cookies! Download our FREE Cookie Locator Mobile App by calling **GSCOOKIES or clicking here, or click here to visit iLoveCookies.org to use our Online Cookie Locator after Feb. 13, 2012. Or, send your contact information to ProductSales@girlscoutsnorcal.org to be connected to a troop in your area."
Only a couple people have responded to my online ad cookies. My Girl Scout and I are out running door to door every after school.
We hope you get your Girl Scout cookies fix before sales end :-) Have a great day.
Samoas are one of the most popular variety of Girl Scout cookie sold by the Girl Scouts of the USA. These consist of a circular vanilla cookie about 2 inches in diameter with a small hole in the center, covered in caramel and toasted coconut and then striped with chocolate. This is one of the few cookies in the group that has differences depending on the bakery. The reason there are two names is because while similar, the cookies have some differences. Samoas are made by Little Brownie Bakers. They are circular, with an orange color and are thicker from top to bottom, usually they also contain more caramel per coconut, and they are made with dark chocolate. The Caramel deLites, made by ABC Bakers, are actually hexagonal, with a more yellowish tinge, are made with milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate, and more of the cookie comes through in the flavor because of the lower caramel content.
