There is nothing driving adults more crazy than Girl Scout Cookies. They are probably the Harry Potter of food items and make the day of most grown-up on special holidays. But even a popular treat like this one needs an upgrade from time to time. Girl Scout Cookies going digital was probably one of the smartest moves.
In December, Girl Scouts USA reported it would launch Digital Cookie, a framework that permits Scouts to offer the treats through their own individual coockie sites or versatile apps.
The Western Pennsylvania Scouts are among 50 regional councils across the nation that went for this pilot program, as indicated by Susan Jenkins, manager of product sales for the local Girl Scouts organization based on the North Side The association regulates organization for troops in 27 areas spanning from Erie to West Virginia.
This week, Ms. Jenkins reported that digital sales in Western Pennsylvania had totaled a little more than 13,500 boxes, with some regional troops offering treats until March 22. She said 83 percent were sent directly to clients, and 17 percent were ordered to be given to military work force through the Girl Scouts’ Operation Sweet Appreciation venture.
Treats retailed online are the same cost as those sold face-to-face — $4 a box— aside from the new without gluten Toffee-tastic treats, which cost $5 a box.
The well known Thin Mints had topped computerized sales in Western Pennsylvania to date, with caramel-coconut-flavoured Samoas and chocolate-wrapped peanut butter-based Tagalongs comming next in line.
Other than pitching their treats on their pages, the Scouts can employ Digital Cookie to get their financial education badges.
For Girl Scouts USA, this is the 98th year of treat deals.The national group expects the yearly event to lead to $800 million for Scouting activities.
Starting today, the association will commence National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, with Scouts offering treats at 10 areas Downtown. Selling booths will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eight mixed bags of treats will be accessible, including the new Toffee-tastic and new Rah-Rah Raisins, and Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils and Savannah Smiles.
Returns will go to the Scouts’ Leaders In Training For Tomorrow program, which aids young ladies in grades 6-12 to enhance relational abilities and self-esteem.
Meanwhile, Wicked Cool Toys recently reported that we will soon be able to homebake our own Thin Mints and Samoas with Easy-Bake-Oven-style.But this did not scare all the Girls Scouts out there.
The 9-year-old young cooks will not go bankrupt. Most probably the premixed goodies will not really taste like the homemade ones.
In fact the oven is simply a piece of a line of toys scheduled to launch this autumn including a labeled “On-the-Go Wagon” and Girl Scout Cookie Stand, so children can have the experience of the Girl Scout all throughout the year.
They are, all things considered, the girl-power group that brought you such amazing cool-ness as a cell phone locator application and overwhelming pulls outside therapeutic weed shops, plotting for the “munchies demographic.”
