Did you know that: 

  • The sale of Girl Scout Cookies began in 1917 as a way for troops to be self-reliant and finance their own activities 
  • Many successful women leaders tell us that their first entrepreneurial experience was selling Girl Scout Cookies 
  • Five of the top selling cookies sold in the United States are Girl Scout Cookies; sales of Thin Mints surpassed those of Oreos in 2012, making Thin Mints the No. 1 selling cookie in the country. The Diamonds Council is unique in that we are one of the few Girl Scout councils in the United States that Samoa is the #1 selling cookie!

Our partner for the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Program is Little Brownie Bakers, which has been baking delicious Girl Scout Cookies for more than 30 years. It produces eight varieties of Girl Scout Cookies, including the nationally recognized brands Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils and Thin Mints, plus Savannah Smiles, Thank U Berry Munch and Dulce de Leche.    

Did you know that Little Brownie Bakers makes their own caramel for Samoas and uses the same peanut butter as Hershey’s as one of the ingredients for Do-si-dos and Tagalongs?    

They have pioneered innovations in Girl Scout Cookie technology such as the Girl Scout Cookie Locator, Cookie Booth Sale Recorder and Cupboard Keeper mobile apps.     

Little Brownie Baker also developed Cookie Club, an online marketing tool girls use to collect Girl Scout Cookie promises from customers via email. Research shows that customers order more Girl Scout Cookies online, an average of six packages, than in person, an average of three packages. The girls deliver these cookie orders to customers and collect payment.
