(Year 1 – Original Cookie Business Badge)
Released in 2011. RETIRED in 2021 – The badge is no longer in production, although the requirements are still sold at GSUSA shops. GSUSA stores will only sell this badge until their original stock runs out. My First Cookie Business replaced the Count it Up leaf as the new Year 1 Cookie Business Badge.
The Daisy Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting page has the information on when all badges were released.

Uniform Vest Placement
Retired Cookie Business leaves should go where #15 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.
Note – New leaders and parents need to be aware that the leaves under the petals on all uniform guides have been retired (Cookie Business leaves in summer of 2021 and Financial Literacy leaves in summer of 2022). Their replacements are the flower shaped badges and go where #10 indicates. You no longer need to save room for the leaves when placing petals, but you can use that space for extra flower shaped badges.
Leaves can still be earned and worn but finding leaf badges is difficult to do since GSUSA is no longer making them and only sold until their current stock ran out.
