Candy, Nuts & Magazine Program Builds the 5 Skills

Troops Earn Funds to Begin Their New Year

Is your troop or Indy (individually registered) Girl Scout participating in the Candy, Nuts & Magazine Program? This “Friends and Family” Program offers flexibility for new and returning troops.

Girls build their 5 skills; goal-setting, money management, decision making, people skills and business ethics while troops earn proceeds to help kick off the new Girl Scout year. It’s a sure win with different options and products available. We love the new photo album, the classic, Salsa Mix and hundreds of magazine options that will pique anyone’s interest. These products combined with an online purchase opportunity make it easy for grandma, dad, aunt or neighbor say “Yes” to your Girl Scout!

So our friends and family love the products, but what do girls think? Meet Carly Hibner, a 12th grade Ambassador Girl Scout from Chillicothe, Missouri. Does her face look familiar? It most definitely should!


We are so proud of Carly who was one of a few Girl Scouts from around the country chosen to be a part of this year’s Candy, Nuts & Magazine Program materials. Carly has been a Girl Scout since she was in Kindergarten and remembers this program as a great way to kick off the new year.

She loved the teamwork of setting a troop goal and then celebrating when they succeeded. Each year, the girls would choose a fun activity or fieldtrip to work toward as well as using some of their proceeds for a community service project. Now as she begins the last year of her Girl Scout experience, Carly is still setting goals to finish her Gold Award project. Carly’s project is focused on bringing fine arts education like theater, art, vocal and dance to an at-risk youth center, North Missouri Center for Youth & Families.

The Candy, Nuts & Magazine Program helps Carly and all Girl Scouts set goals, celebrate their success and do incredible things for their community! See more details and watch a great video that showcases the ease and the benefits of this program. Say “Yes” to participating in this program. There is still plenty of time with orders not due until October 5.
