The Hype Around Girl Scout Cookies

A lot of people never miss out on the chance to buy Girl Scout Cookies. Others say it’s not worth the price. Which side are you on?
(Grecia Chavez)

The Girl Scouts are an organization that has been around since 1912! It was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in an effort to unite girls and have them embrace their strengths.  The organization’s mission is to teach young girls all around the globe entrepreneurial and leadership skills, how to build relationships, and to give back to their community. The Girl Scouts biggest trademark, however, is its Girl Scout Cookie Program. 

 January is often labeled as ‘Girl Scout cookie season,’ as it is the time where all the Girl Scout troops set out to sell their cookies to their community. Many people look forward to this time and cannot wait to get their hands on some delicious treats. They are enticed by all the unique flavors; exactly twelve in 2024! In fact, the program offers a great variety of cookies. They range from Adventurefuls (a brownie-inspired treat) to Lemonades and Peanut Butter Patties. Two gluten-free options available include, Toffee Tastic and Caramel Chocolate Chip. Moreover, these cookies are one of a kind flavors that are hard to find elsewhere. The unique flavors are what most likely make the cookies such a big hit. Since people who enjoy these cookies can only purchase them for a limited time, and usually only from Girl Scouts, they often do not hesitate to buy them. This, along with the argued great-tasting flavors and the variety, is often enough to convince people of the cookies’ worth. In addition, some are happy to buy from this program since it allows the girls to build businesslike skills, such as money management and advertising. 

However, others do not think Girl Scout cookies are worth it. Even if they enjoy the flavors, each box’s six dollar price tag deters them from purchasing. This is incredibly discouraging to buyers since the price used to be five dollars just two years ago, and Rupal Tyagi (10) says, “I stopped buying Girl Scout cookies since they’ve gotten too expensive.” Furthermore, some consumers are disappointed in the quantity of cookies per box. Most boxes average 12 to 14 cookies per box, which can seem inadequate compared to the price. For these reasons, many people are letting go of Girl Scout cookies.

I stopped buying Girl Scout cookies since they’ve gotten too expensive.”

This Girl Scout cookie season, which side were you on? Did you enjoy a couple of boxes or did you pass this time because of the price?
