From Jan. 10, until Feb. 17, Girl Scouts of North Texas will be selling cookies by the boxful, although they’re doing things a little different this year. For the first time ever, they’ll be weighed down with boxes of cookies in-hand, allowing them to sell, deliver and collect money all at once.
As if that isn’t cool enough, there’s also a “cookie locator” app for your iPhone. First, there’s a countdown to “cookie season,” and then neighbors can use it to locate where Girl Scouts will be hawking their wares, based on date and zip-code.
You can download the app by dialing **GSCOOKIES on your iPhone or Android, or you can just search “cookie locator” in the app store.
Or — since you’re obviously already online — you can also go to the website and type your zip-code into the “find cookies” search box near the top.
