image014Fort Wayne, IN —Yum! It’s time for Girl Scout Cookies!  Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, and the 10th anniversary of everyone’s favorite Lemonades are just around the corner!

Beginning this weekend be on the look out for those adorable Girl Scouts earning money for camp, troop adventures, and more as they look for hungry consumers to help support them.  Yes, they’re awesomely delicious. But buying Girl Scout Cookies is about so much more than just handing over money for a box of treats.

It’s about having fun and making new friends. And it’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with you—the cookie customer! It’s about the experience of running her very own cookie business, working with others—and building a lifetime of confidence as she learns five skills essential to leadership, success, and life.

Why buy cookies?

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you help fund new adventures and life-changing opportunities for girls—from trips to our nation’s capital to community projects, summer camp, and charitable donations. The more cookies you buy, the more you help today’s girls develop into tomorrow’s leaders.

Where to buy cookies

There are several ways to satisfy your Girl Scout Cookie craving. You can get cookies at a Girl Scout Cookie booth in your community.  To find one close to you enter your zip code in the “Find Cookies!” tool at www.gsnim.org, or download the official Cookie Finder mobile app for your iOS® or Android® phone or tablet.

However, if you can’t make it to a cookie booth and still can’t curb your craving for Peanut Butter Patties, or don’t know a Girl Scout to ask, simply send us an email at iwantcookies@gsnim.org and we’ll connect you with one!

Or—and this is pretty exciting—a girl you know can invite you to buy your cookies online with the Digital Cookie platform, now in its second year!
