Nuts and Candies

Nut & Candy Program

The Fall Product Program gives girls and troops the opportunity to sell magazine subscriptions (new and renewals), NEW Photo Keepsake items, and the very popular nuts and candies to earn quick and easy start-up money for their troop when many troops are in need of funds. This year girls can sell nuts and candy both in person with the traditional order card, and via the NEW QSP/Nut Online Program..

We hope your girls join us as we look forward to our best Fall Product Program yet!

Traditional Order Card
On the standard order card there are 16 different nut and candy items for customers to choose from. Each year we offer two collectable tins. This year’s holiday tin is the Bird House Tin containing Caramel Treasures. The Girl Scout Tin contains double chocolate truffles.

New this year is the Almond Cran-Orange Crunch and English Butter Toffee. Order card nut/candy items are priced at $6, $7 or $8. Troops earn 12% of the selling price for each nut and candy item sold and girls earn cumulative recognitions. Troops that opt out of recognitions will earn 13% per nut and candy item sold.

NEW Project Share!
This program gives girls the opportunity to support our military by collecting donations that go towards purchasing nuts, candies and magazines for active military. Girls will earn a Share patch for selling six items or more and all sales count towards nut/candy recognitions. The troop earns 12% (13% for opt-out troops) of the selling price for each order. And… the COUNCIL handles all order fulfillment and distribution. Providing a taste of home has never been so sweet!

Be a Super Troop! All troops that participate in both the 2014 Fall Product Program and the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Program will receive a Super Troop patch for every registered girl and troops are entered in a drawing for a prize package from Juliette’s Boutique.
