Mags&Munchies

Everyone knows about Girl Scout Cookies, but you might not know about the magazines, candles and delicious nuts, snacks, and chocolates that are part of our Mags&Munchies...and More program.

Because it’s an easy and fun way for girls to earn patches and rewards and troops to get funds, this program gives our Girl Scout troops a chance to experience new and exciting adventures without having to wait until the Girl Scouts Cookie season. Many troops even consider it a chance to “practice” for Cookie Season.

All of the products sold make great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list, so this program comes at a perfect time!

Why Should You Support the Mags&Munchies Program?

The GSNC Mags&Munchies program is a “learn and earn” program. Girl Scout troops can earn 10-20 percent in proceeds for all of their magazine, nut, snack and candle sales.

Most importantly, by running their own business girls will learn a lifetime of skills, including:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

Support your local Girl Scout and her troop by purchasing nuts, snacks, magazines, stainless steel bottles, thermal tumblers, candles or a greeting card set through our Mags&Munchies program. Online sales run from September 16 to December 17, 2019. In-person sales take place from October 14 to November 7, 2019.
