Central California Girl Scouts Kick Off 2023 Cookie Season

Girl Scouts Heart of Central California have kicked off the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season, as Girl Scouts and their troops rally the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. New to the 2023 cookie season, the highly anticipated online exclusive Raspberry Rally cookie joins the iconic lineup, alongside classic family favorites like Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, and more.

With every cookie purchase, you’re supporting each Girl Scout’s ability to learn, grow, and thrive through all of life’s adventures. Plus, all proceeds stay local to help fund life-changing, youth-led programs, experiences, and learning all year long in our region.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. Girl Scouts’ newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer entrepreneurial playbooks for every age level. From the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned as a Daisy to the Entrepreneur Accelerator for girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and confident decision making. New this year, Raspberry Rally is exclusively offered through digital channels for direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills. This latest approach will help to guide the evolution of the cookie program for the digital future.

Cookie Season runs through March 19.

From Feb. 17 through March 19, you will be able to find Direct Ship links. This means you can buy cookies online and have them shipped to you directly. Visit the Girl Scout Cookie Finder at and enter your zip code to find a booth near you, to purchase cookies from a local Girl Scout troop for delivery, or to donate cookies to local causes.

From Feb. 24 through March 19, you will be able to find local booths on the Cookie Finder. This means you can visit a local business during the listed dates and times to buy cookies in-person from a local Girl Scout troop.

Since 1912, Girl Scouts have risen in the face of adversity and worked to build a better tomorrow for everyone. In Girl Scouts, girls develop the competencies, positive values, and strong sense of self to do big things, as well as the grit and strength that are essential to solving both every day and once-a-century challenges.
