Girl Scout cookies in the US are not marked with an expiration date due to the fact that they are baked for a once-a-year sale season. The cookies are shipped on a first produced, first shipped basis based on an internal production code that the baking companies use. No cookies are carried over to the next year.

Girl Scout Cookies have a shelf life of about 8 weeks or one year if kept in a freezer.

Girls Scout cookies keep for about a year if you keep them in the freezer!
One year when frozen.

Unopened packaged cookies will last up to two months. If you want to keep them longer, then they will need to be frozen for up to one year.

Hopefully, if the package has been opened, they will disappear quickly!

The Girl Scout cookie bakers have started putting a 'Use or freeze by' date on their boxes. If you do not see a date on the box, it is not a fresh box of cookies. The cookies will taste best if consumed by that date.

Unopened, they can last for a month or two. Once opened, they are good for a week or so before they begin to turn stale.

ok, it gets the dough mixed up, then it gets baked, then it gets to be put in the cookie jar, until someone eats it.

If you keep them in an air tight container, you can keep them for a week or too. You can also freeze them in zip lock bags for a couple months.

How do you freeze Girl Scout cookies?

First, call all your customers that usually buy to tell them that you're coming. Then, have your family buy some. Be polite and sweet to everyone and they will buy more. Tell the benefits (reduced fat, etc). Tell them your favorites (they tend to buy these). Also, if your parents work for a large company, have them sell at work. If your mom is a doctor (like mine), have her sell to her patients too. The more people you ask the better. Hope this helps, long time girl scout (Guineagirl96) When I did this as a young girl I took my cookies to the PTA meetings and sold my cookies there. I also would go to the college campuses and sell them ( college students are always hungry). Many colleges had buses for students so I would go on the buses and sell. Also ask people where you work at. One of the most important things we found was to be sure to return to customers each year. They might only buy one or two boxes the first year, but once they know you will return each year, most people will increase their order. Be sure to let them know the kinds of activities your troop does each year so that they know what they are supporting by purchasing the cookies. Also, if someone says they are on a diet, tell them cookies make a good gift, freeze well, or they can just make a donation to the troop.

How have Girl Scout Brownies changed?

The uniforms are different. They used to wear skirts, leggings, long sleeves, and vests. The Girl Scout Brownie program has changed. For many years they earned "Try-Its" but now they are back to earning Girl Scout Brownie Badges. They can also earn badges by completing Girl Scout Brownie Journeys. The age level has also changed. Many years ago, Girl Scout Brownies were grades 3 and 4. Then they were changed to be grades 1, 2, and 3. Currently, Girl Scout Brownies are grades 2 and 3.
