Treats, Reads and More Program: More than Just Cookies

Thank you to all who participated in and supported the Treats, Reads and More program this year! Stay tuned for cookie season coming up soon!


What is the Treats, Reads and More Program?

Over the years, we’ve called our fall program the QSP Sale, Fall Sale, Fall Product Program, etc. Customers have repeatedly mentioned they do not understand what these names mean. Beginning in fall 2019, the program has been rebranded as the Treats, Reads and More Program, to make things more clear. (Please note: the actual program itself—the five skills—has not changed.)
*Treats are provided by Ashdon Farms. Reads and more items are provided by QSP.

Girls have FUN while developing the 5 Essential Life Skills:

  1. Goal Setting
  2. Money Management
  3. People Skills
  4. Business Ethics
  5. Decision Making

It’s easy to participate!

The program is already set-up for you! There are tools available to optimize benefits, it's a great opportunity for troops to earn start-up funds. 100% of all proceeds (after payment to Ashdon Farms and QSP) stay within GSNYPENN to help fund programing for Girl Scouts within GSNYPENN!

It’s important for Troops to participate in BOTH GSNYPENN sponsored Product Programs, especially if they are planning to do additional money earning activities.

  • All troops with registered volunteers who have completed the 2019 Troop Product Agreement JotForm are encouraged to participate.

How Does the Treats, Reads and More Program Work?

Girls should ask friends, family and neighbors to help support her during the program. Customers can purchase delicious nut/candy items that will be delivered just in time for the holidays! They can also purchase magazine subscriptions/renewals, Tervis® tumblers, seasonal scented candles and greeting card bundles, and much more!

Girls can take their sales to the next level by signing up for the online portion of the program. They will have the ability to email their customers and ask them to purchase their items directly online and the items will be mailed directly to the customer!

Girl Scouts and their families should work together to decide their level of participation! Best of luck!    

How to Have a Successful Treats, Reads and More Program!
  • Encourage girls to ask everyone! This program is not as known as the Cookie Program and customers are excited to see what Girl Scouts can offer! Ask everyone!
  • This is a prepaid program. Orders received in person must be paid for at the time of order taking. Cash or check only. PLEASE FOLLOW THE CHECK POLICY AS LISTED ON THE ANNUAL PAYMENT POLICY AGREEMENT
  • Online orders are paid by credit card
  • EVERYONE NEEDS TO SIGN OFF ON ALL TRANSACTIONS – Use the provided receipt booklets! The Troop needs to issue receipts for all Girl transactions - when placing the order and turning in monies for all orders, and especially when receiving the nuts and candy products. 
  • Be sure you allow enough time to completely process your orders and enter them into UNIFY on time!
  • On product delivery day, you are responsible for picking up your entire Troop order.  You will be asked to verify the count on your order, check for damaged product, and to sign for the product received.  Check for accuracy. Be sure to sign for the product and rewards upon receiving the items!
