Received an email today from the Girl Scout Store advertising all their cookie gear. They now have everything from badges, to socks, to scrapbook kits, to a totally awesome cookie jar! Check it out all the Girl Scout cookie gear here.
I’m not the kind of person that uses a cookie car, but this is awesome. Also, to reflect back for a moment, it’s been 10 years since I was a girl scout and I can selfishly wish they’d been smart enough to market this kind of thing when I was a scout! Not only is this a cool piece of paraphernalia, but it would have been a great thing to be able to sell to neighbors, friends, and relatives along with the cookies. What an up-sell opportunity! I have the benefit of being able to look back on this from my current career in marketing to know that any up-sell opportunity it one worth exploring.
I’m also really glad to see that there are actual badges now regarding the cookie sales. I remember all we got was the event patch for participating, and I always had the nifty little Top Seller add-on patch. Way to go GSUSA!

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Neither of the two licensed bakers affiliated with Girl Scout® Cookies, ABC Interbake or Little Brownie Bakers, source their peanut butter from the supplier involved in the current peanut butter warning.
All ingredients used in Girl Scout Cookies are regularly inspected to ensure they are safe for consumption.
FDA and other regulatory agencies have indicated that Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) is the focus of their investigation concerning a recent Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter. PCA does not supply peanut butter used in any variety of Girl Scout® cookies.
Food safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us. The Girl Scout® Cookie Program is the nation’s premier entrepreneurship and educational program for girls and we appreciate your support in your local communities.
