Girl Scout Cookie season returns January 20, and ends February 17.

The Girl Scout Cookie Sale is going beyond the booth and, for the first time ever, Girl Scouts in Central Texas will take orders online. Digital Cookie allows girls to track and accept orders online through their own unique, customizable websites.

“Supporting the Girl Scout Cookie program means so much more than buying a box of cookies,” says Lynelle McKay, CEO of Girl Scouts of Central Texas. “You’re supporting a girl as she learns to run a business, which gives her the confidence to tackle even bigger dreams.”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a launch pad for girls who grow up to change the world. Since 1922, the Cookie Program has offered girls the chance to become entrepreneurs, while setting the framework for achieving future goals.

This season’s selection includes Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, Rah-Rah Raisins, and Toffee-Tastic, the gluten-free option.

Customers can also donate cookies to the brave women and men who serve and protect us at home and around the world by purchasing a “Hero Box” to be enjoyed by police, firefighters, and troops.

Minus the cost of cookies, all funds from the cookie sale are used to support a multitude of Girl Scout programs in STEM, travel and camp, career and college readiness, and much more. Proceeds from cookie sales also provide financial assistance for girls in need. The money raised from the sale of Girl Scout cookies in Central Texas stays in Central Texas. GSUSA receives no money from cookie sales.
