When do Girl Scout cookies go on sale in 2022?
The 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season only lasts for 6 to 8 weeks. If you don’t want to wait another year, find out when you can purchase your favorite flavors.
Depending on where you live you may be able to start purchasing Girl Scout Cookies. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is just one of the many leadership activities Girl Scouts take part in throughout the year.
For that reason connoisseurs and those that want to contribute to their local council or a Girl Scout they know, only have a six to eight week window when they can purchase Girl Scout Cookies. The Girl Scout Cookie season officially runs from January through April but varies by local councils across the country.

The Girls Scouts are hoping to avoid a repeat of last year
The covid-19 pandemic has made for a rough two years for some of the 111 Girl Scout councils across the country trying to sell their cookies. In 2020 the season was cut short with the onset of the pandemic. Last year worries about covid-19 forced several councils to shut down vending booths out of health concerns.
Additionally, a report in 2021 about palm oil used to make Girl Scout Cookies being linked to child labor saw some councils boycott selling cookies. That, along with other potential factors, left 15 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies going unsold in the 2021 season.
