Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle Press Release:

Tallahassee, FL –

It is that time of year again! Girl Scout Cookie pre-orders start January 8, 2011. Girls Scouts from across the 19 counties of the Florida Panhandle will take preorders for cookies from January 8 through January 23, 2011. Cookies will be delivered to customers starting February 12, 2011. The price is $3.50 per box. The preorder period guarantees customers the availability of their favorite cookies. Girl Scout Cookie Booths begin February 12, 2011.

This year’s theme Starting Today! will continue the tradition of providing a quality cookie while teaching effective skills to girls.

“The cookie product program provides the girls with an opportunity to learn business skills including customer service, budgeting and planning,” said Raslean M. Allen, CEO of the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle. “Through the Gifts of Caring program, girls take action through service projects that directly benefit others, giving customers the option to purchase cookies to donate to an identified organization.”

The Gifts of Caring program especially assists our Military Troops overseas.

This year’s cookie line includes the all-time favorites: Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs; Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Dulce de Leche, and Lemon Chalet Crèmes are also available.

Returning to the cookie line up this year is the Thank U Berry Munch cookie. This cookie has premium cranberries that provide a sweet tartness which nicely accompanies the creamy white fudge chips. With zero transfat and no hydrogenated oils, this cookie was a new favorite in 2010.

The Girl Scout Cookie Sale is the number one literacy program for girls. By selling cookies, girls are able to realize their full potential and become strong, confident, and resourceful citizens. Many successful business women today say that they got their start in the business world by selling Girl Scout Cookies.

The Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle invites girls from kindergarten to twelfth grade, to join the adventure and empower themselves through courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place. Currently, the council serves 7,150 girls and 2,400 volunteers across 19 counties of the Florida Panhandle. To volunteer or join Girl Scouts, contact the local council office at 1-888-271-8778 or visit

Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle is a United Way Agency.

    I agree with Veronica, $3.50 a box is a good price for what you get, considering they are supporting an wonderful organization such as Girl Scouts. I have daughters that are in Brownies and I am very grateful to everyone who is willing to pay that little extra and support our troop. My kids troop also uses a portion of the money raised to fund charitable activities involving the girls. When you buy GS Cookies, you are getting more than just a cookie, my girls are so excited and proud to be a Brownie and they are gaining valuable lessons that will help them later in life. Buy as many cookies as your wallet and waist will allow!

    Keebler doesn't support Girl Scouts by selling the similar cookies. The price of a Girl Scout cookie is trivial compared to what it helps provide for the girls. My earliest memories are of selling in my neighborhood and I am now a confident, successful woman. I thank Girl Scouts for teaching me and I will support them, regardless of the price.

    I always buy an extra box of the thin mints and put them in the freezer until about September. Then I'll eat them and people are all jealous that I still have GS cookies out of season.

    I do love Girl Scout cookies, thin mints and the coconut ones. But they are expensive. Keebler makes grasshoppers and the coconut ones for a cheaper price.
