Girl Scouts redesigns cookie boxes; sales continue through March 17

Girl Scout cookie boxes, on sale now through March 17, boast a new look, but the cookies inside feature the same great taste, according to organization executives.

In 2013, Girl Scouts is bringing back all the favorite flavors wrapped in boxes highlighting how each purchase helps girls learn while they earn, said Marina Park, CEO of Girl Scouts NorCal.

“There’s more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box,” Park said, adding, “When a girl sells cookies, she’s creating a plan, interacting with customers and working as part of a team. She’s building a lifetime of skills and confidence.”

Watch for Girl Scouts of Northern California troop members going door-to-door in some neighborhoods, or setting up booths outside the Anderson Wal-Mart SuperCenter, Anderson Safeway, Holiday Market in Cottonwood and other locations throughout the South County, Park said. Girl Scouts are once again teaming up with Intuit’s GoPayment mobile platform to accept debit/credit cards on cookie purchases, she added. That technology — plus the free Cookie Locator Mobile App and Online Cookie Locator at — make it easy for customers to satisfy their cookie cravings while supporting Girl Scouts during the 2013 sale that started Feb. 10, according to Park.

At just $4 a box, customers can choose from Thin Mints, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Dulce de Leche, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos®, Thank U Berry Munch™ and the return of Savannah Smiles, she said. All cookie varieties have 0 grams trans fat per serving and no high fructose corn syrup. Seven varieties have no artificial colors while five varieties contain no hydrogenated oils, Park added.
