About Snacks & Magazines

Plan to join us for Snacks & Magazines season starting September 26! Meet this season’s mascot, Hope the Hawaiian Monk Seal, who will help us “Go Bright Ahead” into the fall. Girl Scouts can offer tasty snacks and a full array of magazines for friends and family to purchase to benefit their troop.

Participating in the Snacks & Magazines Program (also known as Fall Product), is a terrific learning experience that helps girls develop important skills while connecting with friends & family members. This quick and easy program features one order and one delivery for snack items. Friends and family who live out of the area have the option to pay for shipping and have their snack order delivered from the vendor to their door. Magazines are delivered directly to the customer.

What Is Snacks & Magazines?

Girls can sell magazine subscriptions and delicious snacks, like nuts and chocolates, to their friends and family. The funds earned during this fall program can go toward troop activities, like take action projects, badge-earning events, fun outings, and more. Participation in this program also prepares girls and troops for success in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Psst, here’s a tip: these items make great holiday gifts!

 

Meet the 2022 Mascot

Each season, we have a new mascot to lead girls through the program. Meet this season’s mascot, the Hawaiian Monk Seal, who will help us “Go Bright Ahead” into the fall. Watch for opportunities to learn more about her with your troop in In a Nutshell blog.

Become Part of the Seal Squad

Learn more about Hawaiian Monk Seals and how you can give back to the animals at the Minnesota Zoo. When you participate in Snacks & Magazines, you can become a member of the Seal Squad! At select reward levels, instead of receiving an item, you can choose to make a donation to the Minnesota Zoo, home of a Hawaiian Monk Seal just like our program mascot, Hope. Plus, you'll earn a special patch too!

Learn more about earning the patch and check out this video to see the seal in action and learn some seal-ly neat facts. courtesy of our friends at the Minnesota Zoo.

How You Can Support

Girl Scout families and friends can support a girl’s troop by renewing their favorite magazines, subscribing to new magazines, or ordering snacks. When you purchase our fall products, troops earn $1 per nut/chocolate item sold and $3 per magazine subscription sold. This helps girls cover some of the costs of having a great Girl Scout year.

Care to Share Program

Help local struggling families and seniors experiencing hunger by contributing towards our Care to Share program (in $9 increments). With your help, Girl Scouts River Valleys will donate products to Second Harvest Heartland and Channel One Regional Food Bank after the program ends.
