Congratulations !

Congratulations to all of our Orange County Girl Scouts and Volunteers on a great Cookie program!

With the end of the Cookie Program, there are so many exciting Rewards and Experiences to look forward to. Make sure you save the date for these exciting Experiences. Parents/ Guardians of qualifying Girl Scouts should be on the lookout for invitations coming soon.

Troop Cookie Coordinators: Don’t forget to complete your troop’s Final Recognition Order in ABC Smart Cookies to make your entrepreneurs are recognized for their hard work. (Refer to page 37 in your Troop Plan Book for instructions.)

Message from ABC Cookies Regarding the Raspberry Rally and Carmel Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies

Dear ABC Council Partners,  

After much consideration and consultation with GSUSA and the Product Program Steering Committee, ABC will not be able to put the Raspberry Rally cookie back online on March 4. Although we did produce the planned production for the season, demand is so high and quantity so limited that we are not able to guarantee that we will not incur backorders as we did during the last release.

We will put a banner on our Smart Cookies Direct Ship next Wednesday, March 1, indicating that the item is sold out for the season. This should give you time to communicate with your membership. We will also work directly with the councils that were not able to sell any of this item to ensure the best possible outcome for their girls.  

In addition, we expect to be temporarily out of stock on Caramel Chocolate Chip, our gluten free cookie, within the next few days. We will have more production to our fulfillment center by March 7. The banner on Smart Cookies Direct Ship will say “Out of Stock” when that happens.   

We apologize for any inconvenience to you, your members or consumers.

Thank you for your partnership.  
ABC Bakers

Cookie Share!

Our Cookie Share program allows girls to learn about philanthropy and giving back to the community, while earning proceeds for their troop and credit towards their rewards.

The council virtual Cookie Share Program is a cookie donation opportunity for customers to buy cookies to be distributed to our nation’s military and local food banks. These purchases will be delivered directly from the council to our community partners. 

The benefits to participate in the Council Virtual Cookie Share are:

  • Girls receive credit towards their rewards for virtual Cookie Share sales.
  • Troops receive proceeds for each package of virtual Cookie Share sold.
  • Customers are given the chance to give to others while supporting Girl Scouts.
  • Virtual Cookie Share donations are tax deductible.
  • Cookie inventory is managed by the Council.
  • Cookie Delivery is handled by the Council.
  • More information on Cookie Share can be found in your Troop Plan Book, pages 8, and 34-38.

How Do I Enter Cookie Share in ABC?

Girls should report any online Girl Delivery Cookie Share purchases to their Troop Cookie Coordinator.  The Troop Cookie Coordinator must allocate these Cookie Share packages to the girl in ABC Smart Cookies. 

Here’s how:

  • Option One – If the troop is participating in the council’s VIRTUAL Cookie Share program, the Troop Cookie Coordinator makes the entry for the girl using the “Virtual Cookie Share” feature under the “Orders” tab in ABC Smart Cookies.
  • Option Two – If the troop is donating cookies to their own organization (Troop’s Own Cookie Share), the Troop Cookie Coordinator will order their cookie share packages from a cupboard and allocate those cookie packages to the girls who sold them using the “Transfer” feature under the “Orders” tab in ABC Smart Cookies.

Cookie Share orders placed through the direct ship option will automatically show up in the girl’s totals and will be included in the council’s VIRTUAL Cookie Share Program.  To see these totals run the “Girl Cookie Order Detail Summary” under reports.  The direct ship Cookie Share orders will appear under the Cookie Share column on the report.  These orders cannot be switched to be included in a Troop’s Own Cookie Share donation.

Follow pages 34-38 in your Troop Plan Book for step by step directions

Raspberry Rally Inventory

We want to update you on information recently received from ABC Bakers, GSOC’s cookie supplier.  

This past weekend, ABC Bakers oversold Raspberry Rally cookies, resulting in the cancellation of some orders that contained the Raspberry Rally cookies. Below is background leading to this action. 

On Friday, February 10, ABC Bakers released additional Raspberry Rally cookies for sale. By Sunday, February 12, Girl Scouts had already sold through this inventory (in less than 48 hours). 

We were recently made aware that ABC Bakers accidentally oversold their available quantity of Raspberry Rally cookies. Due to limitations within the Smart Cookies platform, ABC Bakers is not able to fulfill partial orders and had to cancel and refund all orders of Raspberry Rally Cookies, including orders that contained Raspberry Rally Cookies and additional flavors. Customers whose orders were cancelled have been notified by ABC Bakers. 

As Girl Scouts across Orange County continue to fulfill the demand for everyone’s favorite cookies, please remember to share the wide variety of delicious flavors we have through our remaining nine varieties.  

Thank you for all you to do to support Girl Scouts in Orange County.

Raspberry Rally Restock

Raspberry Rally Cookies are available online only while supplies last

Due to extremely high demand, Raspberry Rally cookies are currently out of stock again. We are excited by the success of the online only cookie and the potential it holds for Girl Scouts selling skills! 

Make sure to mark your calendars! Raspberry Rally Cookies will be back one final time in a very limited quantity on March 4th at 12:00 AM EST to allow late starting Councils an opportunity to sell. This will be the final release of inventory and we will be sold out for the season once stock is depleted.
