The Girl Scouts website states that Girl Scout Cookies are available according to each local council's cookie season. Cookie sale time periods vary according to each community.
Knowing a Girl Scout who sells cookies is helpful in keeping up with when cookies are available but not necessary, according to the Girl Scouts website. Contacting the local Girl Scout council or using tools at the Girl Scouts website, including the Find Cookies and Council Locator pages, are also viable ways of discovering when cookies are available. The Girl Scouts Cookie Finder App may also be used to locate sale time periods as well as cookie sale locations.
