S’mores, the most popular Girl Scout cookie flavor to launch in the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies, will be available when Girl Scouts begin selling cookies in Colorado on Sunday, February 4, 2018. This crunchy graham sandwich cookie with creamy chocolate and marshmallow-like filling joins Girl Scout cookie favorites: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles, and gluten-free Toffee-tastic. Girl Scout Cookies will be on sale across Colorado through March 11.
For the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program, S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastic will sell for $5/package. All other varieties are $4/package. Only limited quantities of the S’mores cookie and gluten-free Toffee-tastic will be available, so stock up early!
Colorado Girl Scouts sell cookies online, in addition to door-to-door and in front of major retailers. The Digital Cookie program was popular during the 2017 sale with 6,431 Colorado Girl Scouts participating and selling 395,462 packages to friends and family across the country. This year, Girl Scouts of Colorado expects even more girls to participate in Digital Cookie, as it creates another fun, safe, interactive way for girls to reach their goals. To purchase cookies online, customers must get an invite to shop at a girl’s personal website.
Each purchase of Girl Scout Cookies supports girls in developing five lifelong skills: goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
“Girl Scout Cookie time is all about teaching girls lifelong business skills,” said Stephanie Foote, president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado. “The proceeds from these girl-led businesses go to fund all the adventures you get to have as a Girl Scout.”
Making the world a better place is central to the Girl Scout mission. During the Cookie Program, Girl Scouts honor the non-profit organizations, food banks, military, and uniformed personnel who are so important to the community through Girl Scouts’ Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program. Through this program, customers have the opportunity to purchase a package of cookies to donate to Girl Scouts’ heroes – a perfect solution for those who pass on the tempting treats! Girls learn about the invaluable work of their recipients by taking tours, learning about careers in public service and helping with service projects. All Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring purchases may be eligible for a tax deduction. The 2018 goal for the Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program in Colorado is 200,000 packages.

About Girl Scouts of Colorado
Girl Scouts of Colorado is 32,000 strong—more than 22,000 girls and 10,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Ga., she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. To volunteer, reconnect, donate, or join, visit www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org.
