WORCESTER — Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts kicks off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Season Friday, Jan. 14, when consumers can support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by purchasing their favorite cookies, according to a press release from Communications Manager Dana Carnegie. Girl Scouts are now selling favorites including Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Tagalongs®and the new Adventurefuls, a brownie and caramel variety.

This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers. If you know a Girl Scout, ask how she’s selling cookies via the Digital Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. And beginning Feb. 18, consumers can enter their ZIP code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes.

Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase supports local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem on their robotics team, learning how to safely navigate the world of social media, having a courageous outdoor experience, or creating Little Free Libraries and food pantries, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including by earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important online and offline business skills that set them up for success in life.

How to purchase

■If you know a registered Girl Scout, reach out to her to find out how she’s selling cookies in ways that meet local, state, and CDC safety protocols, including via the Digital Cookie online platform.

■If you don’t know a Girl Scout, visit, text COOKIES to 59618, or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app for free on iOS or Android devices to find socially distant or contact-free cookie booths if they are available in your area.
