DALLAS, TEXAS—Girl Scout Cookies are back, and with them comes the world's largest entrepreneurial program for girls. While we enjoy the taste of our favorite cookie flavors, girls throughout Northeast Texas get a taste of what it means to be an entrepreneur and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and confident decision-making. Girl Scouts' newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer entrepreneurial playbooks for every age level–from the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned as a Daisy to the Entrepreneur Accelerator for Girl Scouts in high school.

"Every box of Girl Scout Cookies you purchase will help us innovate and reimagine Girl Scouts for the future. We're focused on empowering girls as they look to the future, creating more opportunities for girls to lead in their communities. We have a lot of work to do and need everyone's support," said Jennifer Borkowski, CEO of GSNETX.

Consumers can support their local Girl Scout troops by purchasing their favorite varieties starting Friday, January 13, and by trying the new Raspberry Rally cookie. It's a delicious berry twist on an old thin-minty favorite and the first Girl Scout Cookie exclusively offered for online sale and direct shipment starting February 27. Plan to get your favorites in January and try a new favorite in February. Though supply of the Raspberry Rally is extremely limited, the value it adds to the Cookie Program is not. Digital Cookie enhances girls' e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills and guides the cookie program's evolution into the digital future.

Girl Scout Cookies are a Texas tradition, but regional variations exist. Depending on where you live, you may know and love slightly different cookies and some flavors you may not have ever heard of! That’s because Girl Scouts of the USA licenses two bakers—ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers—to make their cookies, which are similar but not identical. Each baker has its own approach, ingredient selection, and naming conventions.

Because Northeast Texas, including Dallas, falls under Little Brownie Bakers' distribution, whereas cities in the western Metroplex, like Fort Worth, receive offerings from ABC Bakers, DFW is one of the only areas in the USA where every Girl Scout Cookie made by both bakeries, is sold! So why not try the full assortment of delicious, purpose-filled Girl Scout Cookies this year? You might even discover a new favorite.

Little Brownie Bakers produces cookies for the Northeast Texas Council. All cookies manufactured by Little Brownie Bakers have no high-fructose corn syrup and zero grams of trans fat per serving. They are also kosher, and halal certified, demonstrating the Girl Scouts' commitment to serving the needs of a wider segment of cookie buyers. For more information on ingredient and allergen guidelines visit littlebrowniebakers.com.

We Are Girl Scouts

Whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges. Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas serves girls and adult volunteers across 32 counties. To change the workforce pipeline in STEM and meet the urgent need for female voices, engagement, and leadership in the fastest-growing sector of the U.S. economy, Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas opened the STEM Center of Excellence in 2018. The STEM Center is a 92-acre state-of-the-art camp outside of Dallas where girls can experience astronomy, robotics, coding, computer science programs, and more. Recently, the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Board of Directors was recognized with Dallas Business Journal's Outstanding Directors Award and received the Luminary Award from SMU's Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development.
