The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest, most successful girl-led business in the world.

Columbus, Ohio —On January 6, Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland (GSOH) kicked off the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season, as Girl Scouts and their troops rally the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

Central and Southern Ohioans can support local Girl Scout troops by purchasing their favorite cookie varieties, including Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Do-si-dos®, Adventurefuls®, and more. One hundred percent of the net revenue from Girl Scout Cookie sales will stay local to power year-round troop projects and activities.

How to Order Girl Scout Cookies

Pre-ordering will be available now through March 19. Watch for Girl Scouts coming door-to-door in your neighborhood. If you know a Girl Scout, ask how they are selling cookies via the Digital Cookie® online platform for local delivery.

If you don’t know a Girl Scout, visit www.gsoh.org/findcookies to get connected to a local troop online for shipment to your door, or to donate cookies to the military through the Operation Salute program.

Be on the lookout for cookies arriving in-person the week of February 13th. Thousands of packages of cookies will arrive at distribution centers for troop and Girl Scout pickup the weekend of February 10th.

The new Girl Scout cookie, Raspberry Rally™, will be available for online-only ordering beginning Feb. 27. It is a thin crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same chocolaty coating as the beloved Thin Mints®.

Building the Next-Generation of Women Entrepreneurs

The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls build the essential skills they need to become future business leaders.

“The Girl Scout Cookie Program is all about teaching entrepreneurship and building the next generation of women entrepreneurs,” said Tammy Wharton, president and chief executive officer, GSOH. “Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character—and this program is an integral part of that.”

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 girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and confident decision making.
