Lexington County, SC 02/11/2022 (Paul Kirby) – Break out your sweet tooth friends because Friday, February 11th kicks off the in-person Girl Scout Cookie Season in the upstate and midlands of South Carolina. Consumers can support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by purchasing their favorite cookies and savor morsels from heaven all at the same time!
This year, Girl Scouts are selling the new Adventurefuls, an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt. It’s an incredible taste of adventure in every bite. Adventurefuls joins the whole portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites like Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, and Peanut Butter Patties®.
This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers. Beginning February 18, consumers can enter their zip code in a special Cookie Website to find in-person sales near them.
You may also order online and have Girl Scout Cookies shipped directly to you. Subsidized shipping is available at 50% on specific quantities. Find out more and order those by following this LINK.
The Girl Scouts, tomorrow’s female business leaders today, have even developed a new national collaboration with DoorDash, the on-demand delivery platform. Now, purchasing Girl Scout Cookies has never been easier. The collaboration with DoorDash ensures girls remain at the center of innovation as they offer consumers the option to order cookies on-demand. GSUSA and DoorDash are making it possible for consumers in Greenville and Columbia, who don’t already know a Girl Scout to purchase cookies for on-demand delivery or for pickup at a nearby booth. As part of the entrepreneurial experience, local Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders, manage inventory, and more, while partnering with DoorDash’s technology and team. In Greenville and Columbia, consumers can order Girl Scout Cookies Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 - 8:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. for pickup or delivery on DoorDash.com or through the DoorDash app. There will be an expansion of this on-demand delivery beginning in February. As always, all proceeds benefit Girl Scout troops and Girl Scouts of South Carolina—Mountains to Midlands. The power of the cookies’ sales is a major part of the way that the amazing experiences for girls and facilitation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is funded.
Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase funds local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.
