THE WOODLANDS, TX – They may no longer go knocking door to door, but in just a few short weeks the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council will be emptying wallets and expanding waistlines with the official start of Girl Scout cookie season. The annual cookie cavalcade will commence on Saturday, February 10, and run through March 24. Cookie fanatics can expect to see cookie booths in their communities starting on Friday, February 16.

This year, GSSJC is staying true to tradition and reintroducing iconic cookie flavors, such as Adventurefuls®, Toast-Yay!®, Lemonades®, Trefoils®, Thin Mints®, Peanut Butter Patties®, Caramel deLites®, Peanut Butter Sandwich, and Caramel Chocolate Chip.

“Launching into a new Girl Scout cookie season is like opening a door to endless possibilities for our girls and their troops,” said Mary Vitek, CEO of GSSJC. “Through the cookie program, girls learn essential life skills, develop confidence, and build a foundation for future success.”

Although the program this year includes a slight price increase to $6 per box, troops will receive a 20 percent increase over last year’s cookie sale proceeds, allowing them to fund trips, camp outings, and other Girl Scouting activities.

All proceeds from Girl Scout cookies play a crucial role in supporting various initiatives and contribute to covering the costs of running the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including the production of cookies, materials, and logistics. A significant 60 percent of the proceeds directly support local programs, such as horseback riding, STEM initiatives, and camp experiences. Approximately 21 percent of the proceeds cover the costs associated with the cookie program and vendor expenses. The remaining 19 percent is allocated to troop proceeds and girl recognitions, ensuring that the hard work and dedication of each Girl Scout are acknowledged and rewarded.
