What’s New

The 2024 Cookie Program is still going strong and there is so much more fun to come. The Mystery house contest has just started so keep up those door-to-door sales. We also have lots of Booth Angels out there ready to spread good cheer and encouragement at your booths. And, don’t forget to tag us on social media @girlscoutsoc.

Cookie Program Extension
We understand that the recent storms have made it difficult for many of our troops and Girl Scouts to sell cookies going door-to-door and at booth sales leaving them with unsold inventory. We have been listening to your concerns, and in response, we are happy to announce that we are extending the cookie sale through March 17th! Please reach out to your Troop or Service Unit Cookie Team for more information.

What’s New For Girls & Troops!

All your favorite cookies are back this season!

More information about our Girl Scout Cookie varieties.

In hand cookie sales begin January 28, 2024.

Direct Ship digital cookie customers can email ABCsmartcookiesdirect@westonfoods.com with their full name and order number to track their order.

If a girl wants to expand her customer base by going door-to-door, but wants to limit her contact with those she doesn’t know, she can use the door hangers created by GSOC. Girls can start using door hangers in January. Door hangers allow girls to safely communicate the Cookie Program to potential customers.

Door hangers include pictures and prices of all products available from the order card. Girls can customize the door hanger to include their social media link. When customers enter that link into a browser, it will take them directly to the girls’ storefront.

  • Printable Door Hanger Coming Soon
  • Printable Avery 5262 Label for Door Hangers Coming Soon

Consumers will have the option to prepay by credit card for girl delivery orders placed via an email invitation. Payment will be credited to the troop and girl. Girls can then make a touchless delivery to the consumer.

Troop users will have the ability to issue a credit card refund if an order cannot be delivered. Smart Cookies will show the order as cancelled. Troop and girl financial transactions will be voided in the event of cancellation. The consumer’s credit card will be refunded the purchase amount.

2024 Coming Soon

Girls will receive a Cookie Program Packet in the mail in early January 2023. The Girl Packet includes:

The first Girl Scout to visit a Mystery House location will win a patch. Door hangers count if Mystery House host is not at home. See Mystery House flyer for more information. (Coming soon)

The National Girl Scout Cookie Link is a national link that can be shared beginning early 2023  by GSUSA, councils, troops, and girls to help customers find cookies nearby to purchase, donate, or to have them shipped.  Customers click on the link and enter their zip code. Based on their location, they will then have a choice to visit an in-person retail booth or click on a troop link to order cookies that are directly shipped to them or donate cookies to the council’s charity program.  

2024 Coming Soon
All families should complete a Parent Responsibility Form and email it to their Troop Cookie Coordinator.

Parent Responsibility Form – English Fillable Form

Girls and their parent/guardian will receive their registration email from ABC Smart Cookies on January 9th so they can set up their online account. See the “Girl Registration” video for how to set-up your Girl Scout’s ABC Smart Cookies account.

2024 Coming Soon

This season each troop will have a Troop Cookie Booth Link that they can share throughout the cookie program to promote touchless ordering and curbside pickup of cookies. The cookies ordered using this link will post in the Smart Booth Divider and troops can divide the cookie packages between girls in the troop. For more information watch the Virtual Troop Booth Video by ABC Bakers.

Girls and troops can host virtual booth sales online through social media during the booth period (February 10-March 12, 2023). Check out the Virtual Cookie Booth Step By Step Guide for more information.
