The annual cookie sale begins today with Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles, a lemon wedge cookie dusted with powdered sugar that is the newest offering.
“If you know a Girl Scout, you can order them through them,” said Nekeidra Taylor, corporate communications manager for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Inc.
But if you don’t know a Girl Scout, you will have to wait until booth sales begin on Feb. 11, according to Taylor.
That’s also the day when cookies are delivered to those who preorder.
Cookies will cost $3.50 per box.
This year the boxes have received a makeover for the first time in 10 years. You can see the new boxes at www.showmethecookies.com.
If you want to find cookie sales close to you, the organization has new apps for Android phones and iPhones.
You can use your phone’s GPS to enter your address to find cookies by address or zip code.
The money raised from the sales goes to providing membership and/or camp scholarships to girls who need assistance and to provide financial support for the organization.
