Calling all GSNI Girl Scouts for a chance to win a 3-person inflatable sled! Our mascot, Penny the Penguin, is encouraging girls to Rise Up and make a Penguin Frenzy plan to sell as many boxes of Mint Penguins as possible. The GSNI Girl Scout who sells the most Mint Penguins at the end of the program will win the sled!

Ideas to encourage customers:
• Share penguin facts
• Offer a lesson in how to draw an Emperor Penguin
• Offer a Snowball Ice Cream recipe
• Share a video of you conducting a the Blubber Glove Experiment
We know our entrepreneur Girl Scouts will have even more ideas for the Penguin Frenzy!

Fall Product Program

Don’t miss being a part of the 2021 Fall Product Program, where Girl Scouts can Rise Up as an entrepreneur! The Emperor Penguin mascot and interlocking patches are featured above. Troop Fall Product Chairs must complete the 2021 Fall Product Program Mandatory Online Troop Training on gsLearn to get started and receive your troop's materials from your Service Unit Fall Product Program Coordinator. See more information below under Trainings and Manuals.

Girl Scouts, with their parents, can get started by logging in at www.gsnutsandmags.com/gsni. This will work if the Girl Scout is a member for the 21/22 membership year and has been uploaded into M2OS. Please note: GSNI does uploads once a week usually on Tuesday, so if your Girl Scout just became a member there may be a delay of a few days before she is loaded into the Fall Product Program system (M2OS).

Troop Fall Product Chairs and Troop Leaders can login as a troop user at www.gsnutsandmags.com/admin. Once this is done the first time, the troop user can toggle between the troop page and their Girl Scout’s page with the same login.

Parents or volunteers please contact cookies4you@girlscoutsni.org for any assistance.

The Fall Product Program is a great way to earn proceeds to fund troop activities and service projects at the start of the year. New products include Sweet & Salty Mix and Caramel Apples .
