Girl Scout cookie season kicks off with new cookie flavor

It’s time to stock up on your favorite Girl Scout cookie flavors as cookie season begins Sunday, February 5 in Colorado, and there is a new chocolate raspberry cookie to try.

“Every year I’m excited to sell cookies again because, who doesn’t like cookies?” joked Girl Scout Senior Abigail Reynolds from Castle Rock.

The Castle View High School freshman and her sister, Evie, who is a 6th grader at Aspen View Academy, get the opportunity to gain hands-on experience running their own small business through the cookie program.

“Girl Scouts has taught me a lot of helpful skills such as money management, business ethics and communication skills,” said Evie, Girl Scout Cadette.

Customers will be able to order cookies in three convenient ways from February 5 through March 12: directly from a local Girl Scout, using a Girl Scout’s Digital Cookie link, or at cookie booths in front of local retailers and community locations. Cookies ordered through Digital Cookie may be delivered by the Girl Scout herself or shipped. If you don’t know a Girl Scout, starting February 27, you will be able to order cookies at to be shipped directly to your home. This date has been delayed to avoid supply chain issues like last year, Hannah Gutkind, a Girl Scouts of Colorado spokesperson, stated in an email.

The newest cookie, Raspberry Rally, is exclusively available online for shipment only. Offering Raspberry Rally online allows Girl Scouts to learn new skills and build their e-commerce business.

“When you purchase cookies, you are helping girls power their Girl Scout leadership experience and you’re supporting female entrepreneurs,” said Leanna Clark, CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado.

A box of Girl Scout cookies costs $5, except for the S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastic, which are $6. All of the proceeds from cookie sales stay in Colorado and help fund troop activities throughout the year.

“Our troop plans to use some of the money for our silver award project which is the second highest award in Girl Scouts. We have a few ideas for our project, but haven’t decided yet. We also plan to use some money to go on a Cave of the Winds overnight trip,” Evie said.

The Silver Award requires completing a project that takes a minimum of 50 hours and improves the world. Only 10 percent of Girl Scouts earn it.
