It's time to stock up on your favorite Girl Scout cookies. Not sure where to buy them near you? You can plug your zip code into the cookie finder on the Scouts' website to find out.
Can't remember which variety you like best? When in doubt, buy a bunch—or check out the Cookie Guide.
And just in case you were wondering where all that cookie money goes,we did our homework. According to the Girl Scouts of America, all of the revenue earned from cookie activities stays with the local Girl Scout council that sponsors the sale. This includes the portion that goes directly to the group selling cookies. Councils use their cookie revenue to supply essential services to troops, groups, and individual girls, such as providing program resources and communication support, training adult volunteers, and conducting special events.
We hear there's a new cookie in town!
Yep. You heard right! Meet Savannah Smiles—a powdered, sugar-coated lemon cookie. Sounds yummy, right?
Girl Scouts are also offering snack bars this year for $5/box (cookies are $4/box). They are offered in two flavors: Tagalongs (chocolate and peanut butter, like the cookie with the same name) and Double Dutch (chocolate chip with chocolate drizzle).
