There are so many reasons we love Fall Product season.
We love the delicious treats (Dulce Daisies! Salt & Pepper Cashews! Is it snack time yet?)
We love the mascot!
But mostly we love seeing troops have great experiences, as they expand their business skills, grow closer with one another, and earn money they can spend however they decide!
This year was an exceptional showing of the Fall Product Program, with 494 troops participating. Whether you sold one item or 100, congratulations!
This year’s top-selling group was Troop 389 in Clarksville. And guess what: this was their first year selling as a troop together! They are an encouragement for all of us to boldly take on new adventures. Even if you’ve never done something before, with an enthusiastic spirit and dedicated work ethic, you can reach BEYOND your goals!
We asked Troop 389 a few questions about their Fall Product journey.

Troop Leader Perspective, Tiffany- Troop 389 Troop Leader/Parent
What do you think your girls learn from the Fall Product Program?
“They all gain so much confidence in themselves. Meeting people in their neighborhoods helps with communication skills. And they learn that if they put their minds to it, they can exceed goals.”
What’s your advice for a troop who has never sold Fall Product before?
“Don’t get overwhelmed! Start with family and friends, then do door-to-door sales within your neighborhood. Tell people your goals! A lot of our customers love to support so that my girl can reach her goal.”
