Girl Scout Cookies sold at Academy
February 10, 2023
Academy students look forward to February. While teenage girls relate February to hearts with cute sayings, chocolates, roses, and love, February is famous for another reason…Girl Scout Cookies! When our fellow classmates bring around their order sheets, we all want immediate gratification. Often times the orders are put in over lunch discussions. Our Girl Scout classmates have the perfect audience — hungry high school students who are overly eager to order a variety of cookies. Unfortunately, all too willing buyers must wait for their February arrival at AHN. As our Girl Scout classmates arrive with their deliveries, sometimes we forget what we ordered, way back when. This year, I grabbed two boxes of Thin Mints for my dad, one box of Tagalongs for my brother, two boxes of Samoas for my mom, and a box of Adventurefuls for me to try. Needless to say, we have had the cookies in our possession for only a few days now and have already gone through four boxes. I am not the only one stocking up on cookies though, as many of my friends have taken advantage of this “easy access” to the baked goods as well.

Erica Port ‘25 said, “I love buying Girl Scout cookies from my friends at AHN. I get my favorite cookies (Samoas) and I get to support my classmates and the Girl Scouts! I also buy cookies for my family and they enjoy them too.”
Girl Scouts have been selling cookies since 1917. There are 12 different types of cookies. This year a new flavor was offered, Raspberry Rally, a cookie similar to the thin mint but instead of a mint cookie, it’s raspberry. Girl Scout cookies are loved around the world. This is evident by the 800 million dollars of cookies sold each year. It’s safe to say that the Girl Scouts and their beloved cookies will be around for many more years for us to enjoy. (Delish).
Girl Scout Jude Whittlesey ‘25, said, “[selling cookies at AHN] is a really cool experience that allows me to meet lots of new people and I have a lot of fun talking to everyone and selling the cookies.”
However, Girl Scouts do more than just sell cookies. Scouts are dedicated to giving back to their community and building friendships along the way. Wondering what Girl Scouts do with their cookie money? Most of it goes back into camps and activities so Girl Scouts can continue doing good in their communities. (Girl Scouts)
