It’s that time again. Girl Scouts are out at cookie booths selling cookies!

Looking to buy a box of Thin Mints or Samoas? The Girl Scouts have a handy “cookie locator” you can use to find a cookie booth near you.

You’ll find seven cookie varieties, including Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles and Rah Rah Raisins.

Yes, they’re awesomely delicious. But buying Girl Scout Cookies is about so much more than just handing over money for a box of treats. It’s about having fun and making new friends. And it’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with you—the cookie customer! It’s about the experience of running her very own cookie business, working with others, and building a lifetime of confidence as she learns five skills essential to leadership, success and life.

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you help fund new adventures and life-changing opportunities for girls—from trips to our nation’s capital to community projects, summer camp and charitable donations. The more cookies you buy, the more you help today’s girls develop into tomorrow’s leaders.

There are several ways to satisfy your Girl Scout Cookie craving. You can get cookies at a Girl Scout Cookie booth in your community by entering your zip code in the “Find Cookies!” tool or downloading the Cookie Finder mobile app for your iOS® or Android® phone or tablet.

Or—and this is pretty exciting—a girl you know can invite you to buy your cookies online with the Digital Cookie platform, now in its second year!

And remember to check out this year’s cookie lineup, see how girls benefit from your purchase, brush up on cookie history, and find easy-to-make recipes using delicious Girl Scout Cookies!
