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.
[Due to a request from the Girl Scouts of America, we have edited this article to remove specific troops in the area. Please use the cookie finder!]
And just in case you were wondering just 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?
Any of these Girl Scouts or their leaders would be happy to help. Or Patch! We're definitely not the cookie experts, though.
