Treats & Reads

Our Treats and Reads program is available year-round! Girl Scouts in today’s society need more safe ways to engage in e-commerce and online marketing. One way to participate with Treats and Reads is through creating your own online store and learning to market your store through social media and email. Traditional order taking and direct selling through nut huts are still the most popular options.

Treats & Reads has fun items available that make great gifts, like cans of whole cashews and bags of Black Forest Trail Mix. You can also renew or start a new annual magazine subscription at a great price. With magazines from Parent’s Choice®, top children’s magazines like Lady Bug, and National Geographic Jr., and even more magazines for adults like HGTV and Reader’s Digest, these subscriptions are a great and important resource and source of enjoyment for everyone.

The Regional Centers will have nuts and candies available begining November 15, 2019 for Nut Huts! 
Your Girl Scout Troop can check out whatever is available and will earn 14% troop proceeds for every item they sell. Return whatever does not sell the following Monday and deposit all funds into your troop bank account. Payment for Nut Huts will be pulled on either the 1 or 15 of the month through ACH with your Girl Scout Troop bank account.
See council sponsored locations with the links below.
