|Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Update
Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa WILL NOT be receiving more in-person inventory of the new Caramel Chocolate Chip (CCC) cookies during the 2019 GSGI Cookie Program. The only way that customers or girls selling will be able to get additional stock of Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies is through online orders for direct shipping from ABC Bakers' warehouse. We sent a Special Edition Shout Out earlier this afternoon alerting everyone that online orders had been turned back on by ABC Bakers.
We will still take exchanges from troops of CCCs at cookie cupboards through February 22, so any cookies exchanged will be available first-come, first-served – but we do not anticipate many returns!
What can you do to order CCCs?
1. If you want to place a direct ship order to fulfill your troop or customer’s needs, you will be responsible for paying for shipping, at the half-off rate of $5.75 for 5-12 packages. You will not be able to transfer those orders in Smart Cookies – the sale will be credited to the girl whose order link the order is placed under.
2. If your customers would like to order CCCs, make sure they have your Girl Scout’s order link and are ready when the CCCs are back in stock – we truly don’t know how long the stock will last! It could be four hours, four days, four weeks – this cookie will be available for all councils in cookie season.
A quick note if you’re disappointed about the inventory – we hear you! When we learned that a new, delicious, caramel-chocolate chip gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie was coming this year, we believed were ready for it! We ordered two-and-a-half times more than we had ordered of the previous GF cookie. We put in on the order card, and planned to stock it in the cookie cupboards. We were not going to let you all down! And then…this cookie took Iowans (and the entire country) by storm, and people can’t get enough!
Our sincere apologies to everyone impacted by the great CCC shortage of 2019! We are loving all the enthusiasm for this cookie, and we hope that all the CCC buzz will help your girls sell even more of the other 8 delicious varieties to meet their goals!
