Life Skills: The Cookie program helps you and your girls develop leadership skills for life, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Thank you for a successful start to our Girl Scout Cookie Season. As
we enter our third cookie season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are no
strangers to unprecedented challenges.
We have just been informed by Little Brownie Bakers that supply chain and labor disruptions have caused a nationwide shortage in the production of the Adventurefuls™ cookie. Each council will be limited to 7% of the minimum initial order amount that was forecasted last November.
Here is our plan of action:
We will cut off the girl delivery option in Digital Cookie on Friday, January 7, at 12:00 PM. The Adventurefuls™ cookie has been trending higher than the 7% variety and we want to limit the impact on our in-person initial sale. All other varieties will be available for Girl delivery. The Adventurefuls™ cookie will remain as an option for Direct Shipped orders for the time being as shipped orders come directly from the baker’s distributer. Please make sure your Digital Cookie sites are set up and available for ordering.
We are asking our Girl Scouts to immediately discontinue the selling of the Adventurefuls™ cookie on their in-person order cards. We will do our best to fill the orders for the initial sale.
All other cookie varieties are available, and we do not anticipate any other varieties to be impacted by this shortage. Little Brownie Bakers is working diligently to address the impact that the labor shortage has had on the production of Adventurefuls™. GSUSA is working with both cookie companies to try to provide a solution before the end of the cookie season, so we still have hope. Your other Girl Scout Cookie™ favorites like Thin Mints® and Samoas® are in stock and ready to go.
We understand this is an unexpected change and apologize for the inconvenience. We know this news comes as a shock and may deplete some of the excitement around this year’s cookie season. But our Girl Scouts are strong and resilient, and we are committed to helping them succeed. We will continually evaluate the situation and update you as we move forward. Thank you for your understanding, and let’s continue to climb with courage this cookie season!
