Girl Scout Cookies are the cookies sold by Girl Scouts in the United States to raise funds. These funds are used to support Girl Scout councils and individual troops. The cookies are very popular and are commonly sold through fundraisers, by going door to door, online, or setting up cookie booths at storefronts. With the help of this program, the Girl Scouts raise money and improve the financial literacy of girls.
