How much do Girl Scout Cookies cost?
There are 111 Girl Scout councils in the U.S. and each council sets its own cookie prices based on the needs and knowledge they have about its local market, a spokesperson for Girl Scouts of the USA told FOX Business.
Girl Scout Cookie prices reportedly range from $4 to $7 for a single box nationwide.
Some cookies may be priced higher to reflect the cost of production, including the Girl Scouts of the USA’s specialty gluten-free cookie line.
What does Girl Scouts do with the money they make selling cookies?
Girl Scouts of the USA’s Girl Scout Cookie Program is an entrepreneurial program for registered Girl Scouts.
The proceeds from each cookie sale stay with the local troop and council that made the sale, and the money is used to fund Girl Scout programming and experiences, according to Girl Scouts of the USA.
Girl Scout programming reportedly includes lessons on financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, decision-making and confidence.
"What makes Girl Scout Cookies even sweeter? Behind every box is a girl learning important skills to power her leadership journey and unlock a world of opportunities," Wendy Lou, chief revenue officer of Girl Scouts of the USA, said in a statement.
"Financial literacy is not only a critical skill required for entrepreneurship, but an essential life skill," Lou continued.
Girl Scout Cookie Program badges that can be earned throughout the season include the financial literacy badge, the cookie goal setter badge and the entrepreneur accelerator badge.
