TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Girl Scouts are known for their cookies. Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs; people live for cookie season.

America's love of cookies is one of the reasons why the Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle's Fall Products aren't widely known.

Girls in 19 counties across the Big Bend will be selling a variety of products ranging from nuts and candies to magazines.

According to the Girls Scouts, these fall sales not only give the girls a jump-start in fund raising for their troop but help the girls develop life skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Scouts that sell the products get to keep $1 of every sale for their troop and the remainder of the money stays within the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle for financial assistance, camps, and other programming in the region.

If you're not interested in purchasing a product for yourself. you can also support the "Treats for Troops" program which sends gifts to Military families.
