MagNut - Fall Product Program

Click the button below on Oct. 1 to get started!
Get Started

The Fall 2021 MagNut Program begins Oct. 1.

More resources will be added as they become available.

MagNut stands for magazines, nuts, and candy, and Girl Scouts can earn funds for their fun, learn essential skills, and stay connected to their Girl Scout sisters by jumping into the MagNut experience.

It's simple to help your Girl Scout get started with in-person and online orders.  

For MagNut volunteers: Before volunteers gain access to their MagNut "command center" hosted on the M2 platform on Sept. 21, please connect with parents and caregivers to make sure all girl members are renewed and registered for the new membership year, which begins the same day as MagNut order taking—Oct. 1.

How it Works

There are two ways that girls can offer MagNut products to friends and family, and she can have fun creating her avatar and managing her store!

Check out these 3 Steps to selling online to get started!

1. Online via the M2 platform

The mobile-friendly platform makes it fun and easy for girls and troops to participate!

  • Girls can create a unique avatar that looks just like them and even earn their own avatar patch!
  • Girls build their personalized storefront in M2, send emails to friends and family to purchase nuts/candy and magazines online. Magazines are digital orders, and nuts and candies can be ordered online and shipped directly to customers. If a customer requests girl delivery, coordinate a socially distanced, no-contact drop-off.
  • Record a video message to inspire customers to support your girl's goals. She could share her plans for proceeds and ideas for great uses for MagNut products. (Pro tip: Nuts and candies are perfect holiday gifts for teachers, school bus drivers, mail carriers, and more!)
  • Girls can print business cards with their unique, online storefront link to promote their MagNut business.

Customers can also support Operation: Sweet Appreciation and send a treat to the military.

2. In Person

  • Following local safety guidelines, girls can collect in-person orders from friends, family, and more by using her order card. 
  • Additional printer-friendly order cards are available to share with friends and family to minimize contact. Request a printable order card from your troop leader or troop MagNut manager that features 16 yummy treats, including the collectible bunny tin and vintage uniform tin that make great holiday gifts!
  • Print and leave door hangers and business cards around the neighborhood to remind everyone that it's time to order.
  • Help her print out her personalized business cards to leave for those customers who want to browse the magazine selections online or want to order items not on the order card.
Product Offerings

Customers can choose from a variety of great snacks that are perfect for gifts or just to enjoy in person!

Customers can purchase 16 yummy treats on the in-person nut order form, or from an expanded online line-up and have it shipped directly to them.
