Interested in purchasing Fall Product? When you purchase via our direct link you are supporting Community Engagement. Community Engagement provides financial assistance, resources, and visible representation of adults in communities of color that have not been introduced or exposed to Girl Scouts as well as help support foster care troops and Troop 20000 for girls in medical care.


Everyone knows Girl Scouts are famous for our delicious cookies but did you know we sell even more delectable treats and goodies in the fall? Our Fall Product Program gives troops a chance to earn troop-year startup funds without having to wait until cookie time in the winter. They can use the money they earn to enjoy new and exciting opportunities right away!

Girls also learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics through their participation in our product programs.

Why participate in the Fall Product Program?

  • The Fall Product program empowers girls with 5 essentials skills they will need to develop their leadership skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics.
  • Participation in the program also provides girls with an opportunity to earn rewards and patches
  • Troops generate start-up funds that support troop adventures and community projects!

Your support of the girls, troops, and council through your enthusiastic participation in the fall product program is vital to its success and is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

There are two ways to sell Fall Product Program

Magazines, and Nuts & Candy - Online Program

Girls can enhance their sale using their M2 storefront. And it's so simple to set up! Customers can choose the “Direct Ship” option, purchase from a full assortment of Girl Scout products and gift items or magazines, and pay with a credit card. These items will be directly sent to the customer, with no money to collect or product to deliver.

  • Customers can also choose the “Girl Delivery” option. These items will also be paid for online, and then delivered by the Girl Scout who received the order. No money should be collected for any online orders.
  • If the customer chooses “Direct Ship,” they have access to all items available online.
  • If the customer chooses “Girl Delivered,” they will only get to choose from the 16 options that are on the order card.

Nuts and Candy - Sell in Person

Girls can take orders using the traditional paper order card. Payment is collected at the time of order taking.

Resources for Juliettes/IRMs

A Juliette (IRM) is a girl participating in Girl Scouts independently of a troop. Girls in troops may also participate in the fall product program as Juliettes if their troop is not participating; it will not affect their membership status. Contact Conchetta “CJ” Jones at cjones@girlscoutsgcnwi.org for more information.

Gift of Caring


Gift of Caring is a great way to support military personnel, community organizations, essential workers and Girl Scouts at the same time!

During the fall product program, customers can donate money directly to Girl Scouts, which will then be used to purchase nuts and/or magazines that are sent to organizations that bring comfort to the women and men serving in the armed forces.

For those customers who may not want to purchase nuts or candy for themselves, the Gift of Caring (Care to Share) donation program is a perfect solution!

Last year, our council donated more than 14,000 items!

To participate, a customer simply pays the funds and marks "Care to Share" on the order card or in the online storefront. When a girl collects five or more donations, she'll earn the Care to Share patch!
