In celebration of National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA) is hiding golden tickets on select boxes of Samoas Girl Scout Cookies around greater Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 28. Find one and win either a month — or a year — supply of Girl Scout Cookies. GSGLA will leave clues on its Twitter page — @GirlScoutsLA — regarding the cookie booth sale locations outside local storefronts and perfect times to buy a box of Samoas to increase your chances of winning.
Samoas — one of the most popular Girl Scout cookie varieties — are crisp cookies, coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut, and striped with a dark chocolaty coating. The cookie celebrates its 40th birthday this year: Samoas were introduced to the marketplace by Little Brownie Bakers during the 1974-1975 cookie season. Each cookie season, Little Brownie bakes nearly 2.4 million cases of Samoas annually for Girl Scouts nationwide.
Besides Samoas, Girl Scouts in greater L.A. sell Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Do-si-Dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, and the new Rah-Rah Raisins and gluten free Toffee-tastic. All Girl Scout Cookies are $5 a box, except Toffee-tastic, which is $6 a box.
How to win:
Start following @GirlScoutsLA on Twitter for golden ticket location clues. GSGLA will tweet out locations and times throughout the day, approximately 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
On Feb. 28, follow the clues and buy Samoas at a Girl Scout Cookie booth and see if your box has a special golden ticket!
If you find a golden ticket on your box, you will get your prize on the spot — a month supply of cookies — or for one lucky grand prize winner, a year’s worth!
Snap a photo with your winning box and use #SamoaSelfie and tag @GirlScoutsLA for a chance to be featured on GSGLA’s social media channels.
