       Every year many people enjoy a great cookie. No, not the ones that are home baked, but
instead those sold by your local Girl Scout. When you are in the position to make that difficult
decision of which flavor to buy, knowing which ones are the best sellers is not bad information to
have.

       Yes. There are New Cookies

       Every year there is a variety of eight different flavors to choose from. Five of the flavors
might vary from year to year, but there are three that are mandatory to be baked every year by
each manufacturer. They are the Thin Mints (which are the number one seller accounting for
about 25% of sales), Peanut Butter Sandwich (Do-si-dos™) and Shortbread/Trefoils. Each
bakery that manufacturers the cookies have the ability to name their own cookies. This is the
reason that you might see similar cookies that have different names. If you have a suggestion for
new cookies, they are always welcome, but the national organization makes no promises to use
them.

        To the contrary, Girl Scout cookies are not sold by size or number, but instead they are
sold by weight. The national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, monitors the cookies weight.
This is set by contract. Buying cookies from a girl in New York might be a different price that if
you purchased them in California. There are over 300 local Girl Scout councils and each of them
has the right to set their own price. This price is based on their needs and their knowledge of
their local market. Today, the boxes of cookies are sold anywhere from $2.50 to $4.00 per box.
This, again, is dependant upon location and reflects the current cost of cookies as well as the
realities of providing Girl Scout activities.

       So if you are looking for new girl scout cookies to purchase and you don't see one you like
this year, try again next year. Each year there could be a new cookie baked to sell. The two
licensed manufacturers, ABC/Interbake Foods and Little Brownie Bakers, have the ability, as
mentioned, to have a variety of different flavors, as long as they keep the set three. Next time you
have the opportunity to purchase Girl Scout cookies, do so. Your support helps a great cause and
keeps the different flavors coming each year.
