CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Girl Scout cookie season begins in South Carolina on Jan. 14, 2023, and for some, that means the most magical time of year.

In addition to bringing a favorite sweet treat to community members, Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina said that the cookie sales program teaches participants five life skills:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics

1.2 million packages of cookies are in warehouses awaiting distribution.

Cookie lovers without a friendly neighborhood Girl Scout selling door-to-door can download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app on mobile devices or find cookies online at this link.

Proceeds from cookie sales are reinvested locally, supporting activities and take-action projects.

2023 is the last year that cookies will be sold at the price of $4.00 per box, according to Girl Scouts of Eastern SC, so make sure to stock up on your favorites before prices go up.

This year is also the first year cookie lovers can try the new Raspberry Rally, a chocolate raspberry version of the beloved Thin Mint, available online only.
