In 2019, students in Pro Start, a professional culinary prep program, at Standley Lake High School in Westminster developed a series of recipes featuring Girl Scout Cookies. One of the delicious desserts they created: Mini Thin Mint Cheesecakes!
Girl Scouts from Troop 35144 invited our local fire department to come see us at our cookie booth and purchase some cookies. We then let them know they are our Hometown Heroes and their station will be receiving donated cookies at the end of the season. They brought two firetrucks for us to see, answered our many questions, showed us their uniform, and demonstrated how quickly they have to put it on in an emergency. Thank you to our local heroes at Pueblo Main Rural Fire Department for all your assistance!
Zosia L., Wilhelmina M., and Kiera K. from Troop 35367 got a chance to meet their Hometown Heroes, the Englewood Police Department, and sell cookies at a Charles Hay World School organized event, Cougar-Palooza, on Thursday, February 13, 2020. Lots of questions were asked from both the Girl Scouts and police officers!
Thank you to everyone who entered our contest for “Best Cookie Video.” We are so impressed by the creativity and enthusiasm of all of these cookie-bosses. Now, it is time to rally your friends and family to vote!
All of the entries have been uploaded to our YouTube Channel and are part of the playlist: Best Cookie Video Contest 2020. If you like a video, simply click the “thumbs up” icon beneath it. The video that receives the most “thumbs up” by February 25 at 9 a.m. wins!
Troop 27145 of Mancos participated in their first cookie booth of the season and had a repeat customer. Sgt. Brad Ray stopped by and purchased a few packages of cookies with the promise that he’ll be back. Not even an hour later, he returned as promised for cookies for his family and donated some packages once he learned that the troop decided that the teachers of Mancos RE6 were their Hometown Heroes!
Troop 27145 embodies the G.I.R.L. spirit! We have one Junior who loves to help organize and lead the troop in activities and our Brownies really dive in to anything they decide to do. They are fast on their feet and can problem solve as a team to accomplish their goal and have really bonded as a troop this year.
On Wednesday, February 12, 2020, Little Brownie Bakers turned off the option for customers to buy gluten-free, Toffee-tastic cookies for Direct Ship through Digital Cookie/Digital Order Card.
In addition, GSCO is currently delivering the last of the Toffee-tastic inventory in Colorado, from our storage warehouses to area cookie cupboards. Once a cupboard is out of Toffee-tastic cookies, the variety will be marked as unavailable, and that will be visible in eBudde when placing cupboard orders.
Troop Cookie Managers – Options for troops needing Toffee-tastic cookies:
Check multiple cupboards in your area to see if any cupboards have them in stock.
Check the Cookie Exchange in eBudde and see if there are troops who have excess Toffee-tastic cookies for pick-up, and/or do a troop-to-troop transfer.
Talk with caregivers/parents of the girls and ask if they have Toffee-tastic cookies that can be sold at upcoming booth sales.
As relayed to me by my daughter Evie: My dad is awesome! He stood out in below 25-degree weather and sold cookies with me (we sold almost 70 packages!) He encouraged me to tough it out and bought me a hot cocoa to keep warm. He helped me earn my cookie pin between customers by telling me about a financial goal he set as a kid (he collected cans to earn money to buy a Nintendo). He also helped me earn my Uniform to Uniform patch (he’s a correctional officer!) He is always my first customer (he likes the Samoas… they’re my favorite, too). And, he watches my baby brother while my mom (who is also one of my leaders) does Girl Scout stuff with me or does troop booths. He sometimes spends all day driving me to Girl Scout Camp and events too. For this year, I wanted a minion theme “There’s a minion reasons to buy Girl Scout cookies!” so we both wore minion stuff to sell!
Hi! I’m Gracy. I had a booth sale at my brother’s high school during parent teacher conferences. It was super snowy, so when business was slow, we invited the resource officer over to talk about our cookies. It was cool. His daughter was a Girl Scout for years, and he told us funny stories about all the cookies they sold together. He asked about our new cookie, Lemon-Ups. We talked about them, but I couldn’t sell him those because we did so well that we had already sold them all!
