2017 marks a sweet milestone for Girl Scouts — it’s the 100th anniversary of the first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts! Plus, a brand-new cookie has been revealed, the S’mores cookies. And of course, you can get all the traditional faves like Thin Mints, Samoas, and Trefoils (pictured here).
Cookie sales help Girl Scouts earn money for educational activities and community projects, but the sale process also teaches them essential life skills like innovation and leadership.

Cookie season is fully underway, and deliveries begin on Feb. 24, so there’s plenty of time to place an order. And even if you miss the order deadline, keep an eye out for booth sales beginning March 3.
