Trying to track down a local Girl Scout troop selling Samoas or Thin Mints? This year you don't have to spend time driving around in search of your favorite cookies because you can now order them through DoorDash and have them delivered on the same day. (.)
"Through this collaboration, we aim to provide access and opportunity for Girl Scouts, while providing their neighborhoods with safe, efficient and enjoyable ways to support their local troops," Shanna Prevé, DoorDash's vice president of strategic partnerships and business development, said in a statement last month.
We'll tell you how to DoorDash your cookies. And don't worry, if DoorDash doesn't deliver in your area or if no Girl Scout booths are set up, we'll tell you how to order online. For more, here are some.
When can I start ordering Girl Scout cookies?
You can order online at any time between now and the end of the popular cookie-selling season. The Girl Scouts began selling their cookies on Jan. 11 this year and they're generally available through April -- although it's possible the cookies could sell out in your area before that time.
What flavors of cookies are available now?
The Girl Scouts have a variety of cookies you can choose from. Here's what they are this year (some cookies go by different names in different regions).
- Caramel Chocolate Chip
- Caramel deLites/Samoas
- Do-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches
- Girl Scout S'mores
- Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs
- Thin Mints
How to order Girl Scout cookies on DoorDash
Don't want to leave your house or wait for your cookies to be shipped? You can order Girl Scout cookies on DoorDash to have them delivered on the same day. Note that this may not be available in your town yet, as it's still rolling out and will expand to more areas this month.
To check if it's available in your area, open the DoorDash app on your phone and search for "Girl Scouts." If it doesn't return any results, keep checking back throughout February to see if the program has expanded to your town.
DoorDash doesn't deliver in my town. How else can I order?
If there are no DoorDash drivers where you live, you can order your Girl Scout Cookies online. Just visit the Girl Scouts website and enter your ZIP code. You can also select a troop to buy from. You'll be taken to the troop's domain where you'll select how many boxes of each cookie option you want.
Don't like cookies? You can still donate
If you're not a fan of cookies but still want to help out the Girl Scouts, you can donate. And it doesn't just have to be money you donate. For instance, in Kentucky, people can support the Girl Scout troops that were impacted by the tornadoes by either buying cookies or donating them. If you'd like to donate money, you can select which troop it goes to.
