Girl Guides sell their last biscuits

GirlGuiding NZ is adamant it will not crumble, as the century-old organisation sells the last of its famous biscuits.

The final boxes and packets of biscuits are up for grabs - but only until Sunday. After 62 years, the organisation has decided to stop its iconic fundraiser.

CEO Susan Coleman says you'll have to be quick to get some - and some regions are already sold out.

"We do have them distributed from Invercargill up to the upper north, and it does vary partly on how many girls we have as members."

Coleman says they'll be missed.

"We know they've become iconic, and people have really connected them with the girl guiding brand."

The biscuits have been sold for the last 62 years. Coleman says GirlGuiding NZ is making moves to keep people in the programme as they move into a new phase.

"We are currently going through quite a large recruitment drive to make guiding available up and down the country, and to increase the number of volunteers."

Three packets of the biscuits were being sold online for $10.50, but as of Saturday morning are sold out.

"It has been an honour and a privilege to have manufactured the iconic Guide Biscuits for more than 60 years, and we are proud to have been a partner in this important fundraising initiative," Griffin's managing director Brett Henshaw said in May last year, when the end to sales was first announced.

"Griffin's will endeavour to support GirlGuiding NZ in the future, and we wish them every success."
