Attention: You Can Now Order Girl Scout Cookies on Amazon

Now you won’t have to wait for your co-worker’s daughter to sell her stash every year

Unlimited boxes of Thin Mints… and free shipping? Magical.

Everyone loves Girl Scout cookies, but there’s traditionally been one small issue: Tagalong time only comes around once a year. Now, some enterprising independent vendors have made Girl Scout cookies available on Amazon — with Amazon Prime free shipping, no less!

Of course, there is a catch. These cookies are sold by third parties through Amazon Marketplace, and while your friendly neighborhood Girl Scout may charge only around $5 per box, you’ll have to pay these vendors double for the price of convenience. A box of Samoas runs for about $10, while Thin Mints are going for $8.78. If you buy Thin Mints in bulk, you can get four boxes for $27.05, saving about $8. (It pays to have a cookie addiction!)

Our only concern is: Where does this leave our enterprising Girl Scouts? As much as we hate to admit it, part of the magic of Girl Scout cookies is that you have to wait until late winter or early spring to get your hands on your choice box (or six) of Samoas. But now that the secret’s out, will little Sally’s cookie-selling days be over due to the demise of demand? We hope not.

The Girl Scouts also warn that cookies sold online may not be all they’re cracked up to be:

"In many instances, these cookies are actually expired. To find out when Girl Scouts will be selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS or Android devices,” a Girl Scout representative told Tasting Table.


Girl Scouts' Honest Response About the Problem With Buying Cookies on Amazon

Girl Scout cookie season only comes once a year, so what's a girl to do when the craving hits at any given moment? Buying Girl Scout cookies on Amazon — where Samoas, Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Trefoils are available for a high price — is one option, but it's one that's sparking controversy.

While this cookie-buying option is convenient, there's a reason it's problematic, too. A Girl Scouts representative told POPSUGAR, "We caution against purchases of Girl Scout Cookies found for sale online at auction and via community list sites, such as eBay and Amazon, because GSUSA, your local Girl Scout council, and our licensed cookie bakers cannot guarantee the freshness or integrity of these cookies. In many instances, these cookies are actually expired. Further, purchasing cookies in this way does not support Girl Scouts participating in the cookie program."

The good news is that you can buy Girl Scout cookies in person through April (use the Girl Scout cookies finder to find out where), and you can stock up on as many boxes as you want knowing that your purchase is going toward a good cause. Pro tip: Thin Mints taste great frozen, so you can enjoy them all year round, no online shopping required.
