Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama kicked off Girl Scout Cookie season Jan. 1, as Girl Scouts and their troops rally the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

Stock up on all the favorite Girl Scout cookies and help power unique and amazing experiences for girls with every purchase. This year, iconic favorites such as Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Adventurefuls and Trefoils are back, as well as the newest addition to the Girl Scout cookie line-up, the Raspberry Rally. Also new to customers in southern Alabama this year: Lemon-Ups, Girl Scout S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastics.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s largest girl-led business and leading financial literacy program for girls. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls learn five essential skills for leadership: goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

If you know a Girl Scout, ask how they are selling cookies via the Digital Cookie online platform for local delivery. Door-to-door sales will begin Jan. 6, and booth sales will begin Jan.13.

The highly anticipated, online-exclusive Raspberry Rally cookie joins the iconic lineup for the 2023 cookie season. Raspberry Rally is a thin crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same delicious chocolaty coating as the beloved Thin Mints cookies. This must-try new cookie will be the first in the Girl Scout Cookie lineup to be exclusively offered for online sale and direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills. Online and direct ship sales of all flavors, including the Raspberry Rally, will begin Feb. 27.
