And just in case you were wondering...

just where all that cookie money goes,we did our homework. According to the Girl Scouts of America, all of the revenue earned from cookie activities stays with the local Girl Scout council that sponsors the sale. This includes the portion that goes directly to the group selling cookies. Councils use their cookie revenue to supply essential services to troops, groups, and individual girls, such as providing program resources and communication support, training adult volunteers, and conducting special events.

We hear there's a new cookie in town!

Yep. You heard right! Meet Savannah Smiles—a powdered, sugar-coated lemon cookie. Sounds yummy, right?

Any questions?
Any of these Girl Scouts or their leaders would be happy to help. Or Patch! We're definitely not the cookie experts, though.
