Check Out the List of 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Varieties!

 

The 2021 Girl Scout Cookies are here! This is one of my favorite times of the year because it's wonderful to see people supporting the entrepreneurial spirit of young girls, especially here in Texas! In today's post, I'll share the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie lineup, a sweet idea for Valentine's Day, and a link so that you are able to search for a Girl Scout Cookie Booth near you! 



We feature the Girl Scout Cookie lineup every year because we know that this program provides financial support and entrepreneurial experiences for local girls. You may not know this, but 
Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas serves more than 10,000 girls in our region each year. The region covers 23,000 square miles, beginning north of Waco and extending to the Oklahoma and Louisiana state lines. 100% of the net revenue from cookies remains with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas to help our local girls. When you buy cookies, you help to support their activities which may include a variety of things such as STEM activities, leadership activities, or other skill-based activities with their local troops. In some cases the funds even support sending the girls to camps!  


Girls view themselves as leaders and entrepreneurs. They may think about their business strategy and put many hours into their cookie sales which may provide confidence and foster their interests in business pursuits. They see outcomes!  Hard work translates to success which is a real motivator for many girls.  Many small acts of kindness to support the girls add up quickly! I read that over half (53 percent) of female entrepreneurs and business owners are Girl Scout alums – like local business owners Andrea Meyer of Bisous Bisous P√Ętisserie and Nina Vaca of Pinnacle Group – supporting Girl Scouts as they make sales and learn essential business skills is imperative to ensuring our country has a strong workforce and economy.   

The 2021 Girl Scout cookies lineup for the Dallas and Fort Worth metro includes:
  • Trefoils
  • Tagalongs
  • Do-si-dos
  • Samoas
  • Thin Mints
  • S'mores
  • Lemon Ups
If you live in the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GSNETX) region, the photo below shows the fantastic variety of cookies available in our region. The cookies are $5/box for general and $6/box for specialty cookies.


The timing of Girl Scout season is perfect for Valentine's Day. For instance, my family loves the Thin Mints and Tagalongs, so I use a stencil and dust powdered sugar hearts onto the cookies. Let me share this easy DIY project!

DIY Girl Scout Cookies Dusted with Powdered Sugar Hearts
Supplies
  • 1 box of Thin Mints
  • 1 box of Tagalongs
  • 2 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1 piece of parchment paper
Directions
  1. Fold a piece of parchment paper in half and cut out the shape of a heart.  
  2. Place the stencil tightly over a cookie.
  3. Sift powdered sugar onto a cookie. 
  4. Carefully remove the stencil to reveal the heart. 
  5. Optionally dust extra powdered sugar onto the cookies after you finish the hearts!

Not only are the cookies delicious, but you'll also make a difference in the lives of young girls who are building their leadership abilities. It's a win-win opportunity to share love with hopeful Girl Scouts and your family!
