Girl Scout Cookies Go On Sale Friday

WAYNE – The first Friday in February will feature the launch of new packaging from Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska.

According to a release, girl scouts created a sweet new way to celebrate young female leaders this season with refreshed packaging reflecting the amazing experiences cookie earnings make possible for girls.

The new packaging emphasizes what the Girl Scout Cookie Program is all about. Updated images showcase girl scouts enjoying activities from adventure-packed camping and canoeing, exploring space science and designing robots as well as improving their communities. The fun, new packages are still the same size and contain the same number of delicious cookies.

The cookie program also teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they learn essential skills like money management, public speaking and decision making which set them up for a lifetime of success. Nine in ten girl scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills—so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow. Also, 100% of net revenue from cookie sales stays local to power amazing experiences and leadership opportunities for girls across Nebraska.

Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska will be celebrating the Lemonades cookie featuring savory slices of shortbread with lemon-flavored icing. Girl scouts are welcoming back last year’s new gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie and saying farewell to the Thanks-A-Lot cookie, which will be retired after this season.

The remainder of the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie line-up includes Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Girl Scout S’mores and Shortbread. All the classic cookie varieties are still $4 per package while specialty gluten-free cookies are $5 per package. The 2020 Girl Scout Cookie season begins on Friday, February 7 as cookies will be sold through March 15.

Nebraska Girl Scouts also invite everyone to join them in spreading the word on social media about how Girl Scout Cookies make girls shine brighter. Post a selfie eating cookies or lighting up your cookies and tag #GSSN.
