Cookie History

Girl Scout Cookies are a familiar part of American culture. For more than 80 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of local Girl Scout Cookie activities. From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, the sale of cookies has helped Girl Scouts have fun, develop valuable life skills and make the world a better place by helping to support Girl Scouting in their communities. Girls are proud that their efforts provide resources for their local Girl Scout councils and for their own Girl Scout troops/groups.

Our Bakery | Little Brownie Baker

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

Little Brownie Baker 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.   

Girl Scout Cookies are a beloved tradition and highly anticipated by customers each year. Girl Scouts – Diamond’s Cookie Program will begin on, Saturday, January 11, 2014, and Girl Scout Cookies will be available at troop Cookie Booths from February 20 through March 15, 2015.
