Girl Scouts of Central Illinois Kick-Off 2023 Cookie Season February 3 with the Exclusively Online, New Raspberry Rally™ Cookie among other favorites

The annual Cookie Sale powers amazing experiences in outdoors, STEM, and beyond

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois are getting ready to kick off the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season, rallying the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. New this year, online exclusive Raspberry Rally™ joins the line-up alongside classic family favorites like Thin Mints®, Samoas®/Caramel deLites®, Peanut Butter Patties®/Tagalongs®, and more.

Consumers can support their local Girl Scout troops by purchasing their favorite varieties and trying the new, online exclusive Raspberry Rally™, a thin crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same delicious chocolaty coating as Thin Mints cookies. This new cookie will be the first in the Girl Scout Cookie lineup to be exclusively offered for online sale and direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills.

In addition to selling cookies via the Digital Cookie® online platform for direct shipment or local delivery sales, Girl Scouts will be back out in their communities running outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers.

Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including by earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.
