EXAMPLES OF FALL PRODUCTS
- Peanut Butter Bears have a creamy peanut butter center covered in milk chocolate.
- Deluxe Pecan Clusters are delightful with chewy caramel and toasted pecans.
- English Butter Toffee (always my favorite) is crunchy and buttery – so good!
Girl Scouts are also learning the importance of giving back as they donate snacks and nuts to food banks and magazines to the military through the “Care to Share” program.
INTERACT AND ENCOURAGE THEM!
This fall when a Girl Scout asks you if you’d like to make a purchase this fall, look her in the eye, ask her questions about her goals, and support her entrepreneurial spirit. You may be helping a future CEO with her very first sale!
HOW TO ORDER
In October, troops will hand out order forms and instructions to the girls for selling nuts, and snack items. All items except Care to Share can also be ordered online! Five special nut & snack products are available online that are excellent holiday corporate gifts. Each one can be shipped directly to the gift recipient. Girls can start taking orders on October 5, 2014!
