Initial Order Bonus Earned

As we approach the 2023 Cookie Program, we are so thrilled to hear about Girl goals! The Initial Order Bonus has been placed and submitted. We thank you all so much for placing your order in time. To see the Initial Order Bonus Earned report click here.

Troops who placed their Initial Order in time will earn a Cookie Genius patch pin, Stellar Seller Packet, and more. For instructions on when and how to pick up and distribute Initial Orders please review page 17 in your Troop Plan Book.

Reminders

  • Troops should print their Initial Order Report after December 16,3033 to ensure Gluten Free orders show up on their report (more information on pages 14-16 in the Troop Plan Book).
  • Troops who missed the cutoff for placing their Initial Order online should place a Planned Order from a Cookie Cupboard (more information on pages 14-16 in the Troop Plan Book).

Our 2023 Girl Scout Cookie Program is around the corner, and we are busily planning and preparing to support our volunteers and cookie entrepreneurs!

In preparation for our sale, we want to acknowledge news you may have heard about several Girl Scout councils who are contracted with Little Brownie Bakers that may delay the start of their cookie sale. This will not be the case with Girl Scouts of Orange County’s cookie program. We are in regular contact with our baker—ABC Bakers—who has assured us that their planning and preparations are putting us in great shape for a successful sale. We have also heard from our volunteers that there is some concern that our baker will provide cookie inventory to Little Brownie Bakers. Again, we have been assured by our baker that this will not happen. Lastly, as we have shared previously, there is new packaging for Carmel Delights this year. As the baker uses up the existing packaging, it will begin to ship Carmel Delights in the new packaging, which means you may see two types of packaging this year.

At GSOC, we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that girls meet their cookie program goals. Accordingly, we plan on placing our largest ever up-front cookie order to make certain our inventory is as robust as possible, from the start. Our focus moving forward is to maintain communication with ABC Bakers and you—our dedicated volunteers—to be sure we have as smooth a cookie program as possible. As ever, thank you for all you do for the girls!
