Every year many people enjoy a great cookie. No, not the ones that are home baked, but instead those sold by your local Girl Scout. When you are in the position to make that difficult decision of which flavor to buy, knowing which ones are the best sellers is not bad information to have. Yes. There are New Cookies Every year there is a variety of eight different flavors to choose from. Five of the flavors might vary from year to year, but there are three that are mandatory to be baked every year by each manufacturer. They are the Thin Mints (which are the number one seller accounting for about 25% of sales), Peanut Butter Sandwich (Do-si-dos™) and Shortbread/Trefoils. Each bakery that manufacturers the cookies have the ability to name their own cookies. This is the reason that you might see similar cookies that have different names. If you have a suggestion for new cookies, they are always welcome, but the national organization makes no promises to use them. To the contrary, Girl Scout cookies are not sold by size or number, but instead they are sold by weight. The national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, monitors the cookies weight. This is set by contract. Buying cookies from a girl in New York might be a different price that if you purchased them in California. There are over 300 local Girl Scout councils and each of them has the right to set their own price. This price is based on their needs and their knowledge of their local market. Today, the boxes of cookies are sold anywhere from $2.50 to $4.00 per box. This, again, is dependant upon location and reflects the current cost of cookies as well as the realities of providing Girl Scout activities. So if you are looking for new girl scout cookies to purchase and you don't see one you like this year, try again next year. Each year there could be a new cookie baked to sell. The two licensed manufacturers, ABC/Interbake Foods and Little Brownie Bakers, have the ability, as mentioned, to have a variety of different flavors, as long as they keep the set three. Next time you have the opportunity to purchase Girl Scout cookies, do so. Your support helps a great cause and keeps the different flavors coming each year.
