Where to Get Your Girl Scout Cookie Fix

It's that time of year again—get out your wallets and get ready to snack on some of your favorite sweet treats, courtesy of the Girl Scouts of America.

It's time to stock up on your favorite Girl Scout cookies, and Caledonia Patch plans to make it deliciously easy for you.

Kathy Holley, a troop leader in Racine, explained that cookie sales in this region are being done differently this year. Cookie sales will be direct, with no need to order and then wait for your cookies.

"When a Scout contacts you, they'll have the cookies with them right away," she said.

Cookies will be available in mid-January.

We're making a list of any local troops who can deal a sugary fix of your favorite variety.

Can't remember which variety you like best? When in doubt, buy a bunch—or check out the Cookie Guide.

Did we miss one? Oh no! Let's fix that. Email your troop number, leader name and contact information to editor Denise Lockwood at denise.lockwood@patch.com.

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.

What cookies are for sale this year?

Meet the cookies on this website from the Girl Scouts. There are a few new ones on the list, but we don't know which cookies are being sold locally. Not all new cookies are always available everywhere.

Any questions?

Any of these Girl Scouts or their leaders would be happy to help. Or Patch! We're definitely not the cookie experts, though.

Girl Scout Cookie fix? Are you contributing to the demise of thousands of New Years Resolutions? Shame on you! ;-)

How much are they going for a box this year?
Mike Itzenhuiser January 31, 2013 at 04:58 AM
They've been going up in price and down in quality every year for the past ten. I wouldn't eat them if they gave them away.

Cookies cost $3.75 a box, same as last year. Thanks for your support!
