Girl Scout cookies are delicious but the cookie season is far too short. Stock up now and you can freeze Girl Scout cookies to enjoy later!
It’s Girl Scout cookie season. It’s a very delicious way to support the Girl Scouts but it’s not the best if you are trying to eat junk food in moderation.
If you have cut cookies out of your diet or simply have no control around them you can make a donation instead. It’s a great way to still help without the temptation.
If you can manage moderation you can also freeze Girl Scout cookies. This is a great way to spread them out and have cookies long after cookie season ends.
How Long Do Girl Scout Cookies Last?
Generally not long because they get eating too fast, ha. But seriously usually their expiration dates are around 6 months after delivery. If you like to stock up this won’t get to the next Girl Scout cookie season. Thankfully you can freeze Girl Scout cookies!
How Do You Freeze Girl Scout Cookies?
Girl Scout cookie boxes actually have a “use or freeze by” date on the box, unless that variety is not recommended for freezing. You want to make sure you freeze them by that date for maximum freshness.
If you are freezing Girl Scout cookies that haven’t been open simply keep them in the original packaging. Leave space between each box if possible.
If you are freezing an opened package or want to freeze small amounts, simply use a freezer bag or airtight glass container. Make sure to label the containers with the type of cookie and the date you froze them.
The cookies are best if consumed within 3 months of freezing. They are safe much longer but they will taste the best if they aren’t frozen much longer than 3 months.
Thin Mints are delicious when consumed straight out of the freezer, which is a bit dangerous if you are freezing them to help yourself not eat as many.

How do you thaw frozen cookies?
Simply take the boxes out of your freezer and let them come to room temperature. If you didn’t freeze full boxes and had the cookies in containers, place the cookies on plates and let them thaw.
Where can you find Girl Scout cookies?
If you don’t already have someone to buy Girl Scout cookies find places they will be sold in your area on the Girl Scouts’ website. You can even order Girl Scout Cookies online now.
Moderation is always important with a healthy diet but in most cases, it’s fine to treat yourself from time to time. I love to use Girl Scout cookies as a treat because I’m also helping to support young girls.
Freezing Girl Scout cookies make this easier and means I get to enjoy the cookies even longer!
