Cookie Facts

The earliest written mention of a cookie sale was that of the Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Oklahoma, which baked cookies and sold them in its high school cafeteria as a service project in December 1917.

In 1936, the first nationally franchised Girl Scout Cookie© sale was held.

The most popular Girl Scout Cookie© in Hawai'i - Thin Mints®, followed by Samoas.

Across the nation, the most popular Girl Scout Cookies© are:

     25% Thin Mints® 
     19% Samoas®
     13% Tagalongs®
     11% Do-si-dos®
       9% Trefoils®

Girl Scout Cookies© have zero trans fats.

Little Brownie Bakers® makes their own caramel for the Girl Scouts’ Samoas® the old fashioned way - in copper kettles to 234 degrees.

In making Do-si-dos®, peanut butter crème is deposited onto the cookies at a rate of 2,800 per minute.

After exiting the oven, Thin Mints® travel 300 feet on a conveyer belt to cool before being coated in chocolate.

A rotary die shapes Trefoils®. There are 300 identical Trefoil® shapes engraved in one rotary die. The die rotates 17 times a minute equaling 5,100 cookies in a minute.

Samoas® go through a cooling tunnel at 40-50 degrees before chocolate is applied.

Girl Scout Cookies© do not contain preservatives. They are all made with pure vegetable shortening, are kosher, and freeze well to extend their shelf life.
