FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- If you're finding yourself thinking about Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos and Thin Mints, then you know it's Girl Scout Cookie time in Fairfield County.

Girl Scouts throughout the county and and all of Connecticut are now taking orders for America’s favorite cookies. This year, Girl Scouts is celebrating its 100th season of Girl Scouts selling cookies.

Cookies available this year include:

  • Thin Mints
  • Trefoils
  • Samoas
  • Tagalongs
  • Do-si- dos
  • Savannah Smiles
  • Toffee-tastic
  • Girl Scout S’mores (New!)

A century ago, girls started participating in what would evolve into the largest entrepreneurial program for girls in the world. Today, nearly 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the program.

Cookie order taking started Jan. 7 in Connecticut. Cookies will arrive on March 4 and 5 for delivery for those who placed orders, and booth sales will begin March 4 across Fairfield County.

Built by girls, Girl Scouts learn the essential skills they need to become effective leaders, manage finances, and gain self-sufficiency and confidence in handling money.

The first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts occurred in 1917, when the Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Okla. baked cookies and sold them in its high school cafeteria as a service project.

Proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Cookie Program stay in Connecticut and directly benefit all of the Girl Scouts in Connecticut, including the Girl Scout troop or group from which the cookies were purchased.

To see where cookies are sold, go to gsofct.org and click on “Looking for Cookies?” on the sidebar to find the locations, times and dates.
