In 1937 we became an official Girl Scout Cookie Baker.
We've been baking these delicious cookies for over 80 years!
There are 2.7 million people in the Girl Scout Program
With 1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults, the Girl Scouts are the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world they're nearly the same size as the population of Chicago!
Girl Scouts have sold cookies for over 100 years
Selling cookies began in 1917, just 5 years after Juliette Gordon Low began the entire Girl Scouts initiative.
The original Girl Scout Cookie was a simple sugar cookie!
Its ingredients: butter, sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla, flour, and a touch of baking powder!
ABC Bakers’ top-selling Girl Scout Cookies, Thin Mints, have been around since 1939!
The first known record of Girl Scout Cookies made of chocolate mint appeared in 1939 and was called Cooky Mints. In 1951, they were called Chocolate Mints, and from 1959 - Thin Mints.
Every year since 1999, Girl Scouts have brought in $700 million in cookie selling revenue.
That totals up to around 200 million cookie packages, at varying prices per package.
