How to Support the Troops This Girl Scout Cookie Season

Leslie Owen | The PhoenixThe most wonderful time of the year is here with Girl Scout Cookie season.

Girl Scout Cookie season is finally upon us. Classic favorites like Samoas (or Caramel deLites) and Thin Mints are back, as well as newer cookies like Lemon-Ups. There’s a cookie for everyone, from the gluten-free Toffee-tastic to the simple Trefoil (or Shortbread).

Slight disclaimer: due to supply chain issues and the locations of Girl Scout bakeries, some cookies, like the new Adventurefuls, are currently unavailable in the Chicagoland area according to the Girl Scouts website.

There are many different ways to buy Girl Scout Cookies and no matter where or how cookies are bought, every box directly supports local troops.

Cookies can be bought through food delivery app Doordash or the Girl Scouts website. Purchasing through Doordash is available from 3 to 6:40 p.m. for same-day delivery. Purchasing through the Girl Scouts website requires a four package minimum with the promise of delivery between two to 15 business days.

To buy directly from the elementary and middle school businesswomen, booths will be set up throughout Rogers Park and surrounding neighborhoods until in-person sales end in late March. The Girl Scouts website includes a Cookie Finder feature for those looking for the closest treats. Sales end in April for those ordering online.

There will be a booth set up at Pierce Elementary School (1423 W. Bryn Mawr Ave.) on Friday, March 4 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Booths will also be set up on Saturday, March 5 at Sandbox Baby Boutique (5349 N. Clark St.) from 11 to 1 p.m. and Lady Gregory’s Irish Bar and Restaurant (5620 N. Clark St.) from 3 to 5 p.m.
