March 2022 Cookie Program Parent Updates

The 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season has been the most challenging in recent history. Our Girl Scouts, volunteers, families, and customers have been affected by cookie production issues. Girl Scouts didn’t give up! Their families have supported them in reaching their goals, and our volunteers taught Girl Scouts about real-life business obstacles every entrepreneur faces. Our cookie customers continue to invest in tomorrow’s leaders through online purchases, in-person orders, and visiting cookie booths with a willingness to find a new favorite Girl Scout Cookie. With booth season just starting, we have several important reminders to share!

Cookie Cravers

As messaged to volunteers yesterday, unfortunately the variety of inventory at our council cupboards is very low. S’mores will no longer be available for Cookie Cravers (or any types of orders) for the remainder of this year. Currently no council cupboards have Adventurefuls or Samoas. Other varieties of cookies may also not be available now or in the coming days. We do not expect to receive more of the missing varieties of cookies until at least the week of March 14.

Due to these delays in receiving additional cookies to replenish our council cupboards, GSNI will be extending 2022 Cookie Program at least one week through Sunday, March 27. As a result, we will also be extending the final date to accept Cookie Cravers to Thursday, March 24. This could change if additional extensions are implemented. Bring in the completed Cookie Craver Contest Submission form to receive cookies for your Girl Scout’s Cookie Craver orders and review the hours of the council cupboards are listed on the form, they are not all the same as the Resource Center store hours.

Digital Cookie

Due to the uncertainty of when we will receive Samoas, Samoas have been turned off as an option to order in Digital Cookie for Girl Delivery. GSNI may turn off additional varieties as needed.

Girl Scouts with their parents can turn off Girl Delivery option in Digital Cookie or just turn off the ability to order certain varieties of cookies that the council has not already turned off. This is done on the My Cookie tab in Digital Cookie. See My Cookies: Delivery Settings tip sheet for more detailed instructions. Reminder, only individual Girl Scouts or their parents can make these changes. Troop Cookie Chairs and Leaders cannot make these changes for the troop.

For Girl Scouts waiting for varieties of cookies to fulfill Girl Delivery Digital Cookie orders received after initial orders, there are several options.

  • Wait for the cookies to become available in cupboards.
  • Ask the customer if they would like to
    • receive a different cookie(s) package as a replacement.
    • donate the package.
    • refund for the package. Please note, if a refund is processed, the Girl Scout does not receive credit for the sale of the package(s).
  • Contact GSNI at for assistance processing a refund or if the Troop Cookie Chair/Leader needs assistance with updates in eBudde for these changes to orders.

Thank you for your continued support of your Girl Scout and her participation in the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program. Questions? Contact
