Submitted by the Girl Scouts of Western New York

There’s now more time to get your favorite Girl Scout Cookie flavors, as Girl Scouts in Western New York have extended the Cookie Program throughout April.

On Monday, Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) announced the extension of the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie program for Girl Scouts and their troops. The program will now be extended through April 22. This allows Girl Scouts and their troops to continue to rally the WNY community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

This change will allow the community nearly three additional weeks to purchase any of the classic family favorites like Thin Mints, Adventurefuls, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Lemonades, Toast-Yays and Trefoils (previously named Shortbread).

Nutritional information about the cookies, including allergen information, is available at the ABC Bakers website, www.abcbakers.com

All cookie varieties will be $6 per package, and 100% of all proceeds will stay local within Girl Scouts of Western New York. Each package continues to support our mission to support girls and volunteers.

If you are looking to find Girl Scout cookies in your community, visit the Cookie Finder at www.gswny.org/findcookies to view cookie booths within your communities.
