The Delicious History of Girl Scout Cookies

Many people look forward to the annual Girl Scout Cookie season. For the girls in the program, it’s an opportunity to learn business skills and have fun. For the buyers, it’s a time to stock up on delicious desserts. Last year, about 3 million girls banded together to sell millions of these popular treats.

Currently, the Girl Scout organization tasks two separate bakeries with creating fresh batches of cookies each year. Throughout the history of the program, different cookies flavors have come and gone, including Lemon Coolers and Double Dutch. Thin Mints, however, have consistently ranked as the most popular Girl Scout Cookie variety.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program began with a simple bake sale in 1917. In the 1930s, the Girl Scout organization began to approach bakeries to make large batches of the cookies. However, during World War II, the girls sold calendars due to flour shortages. After the war, the Girl Scout Cookie Program grew to resemble the familiar program that exists today.
