Girl Scouts are known for their eight cookie recipes, Do-si-dos, Toffee-tatic, Savannah Smiles, S'mores, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Thin Mints and Samoas.
The 101st year of Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland kicks off the next century of female entrepreneurs and the 2018 Girl Scout cookie season. Councils use cookie earnings to power fantastic experiences for girls through their programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more. The program focuses on five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics, which all have aspects that are essential to leadership, success and life. Cookies will be sold through March 4. Different councils across the United States begin cookie sales and presales at different times.More news: Rob Lowe schools Bella Thorne after insensitive traffic tweet

The Girl Scouts Cookie Program is about more than just great-tasting cookies. In 1935, the Girl Scout cookie first started appearing on cookie boxes and commercial bakers helped to meet growing demands in 1936 with cookie sales going coast to coast in the U.S. in 1937.More news: Equity indices surge to new highs on global cues, buying support
