Apparently January 2nd kicks off the 'official girl scout cookie selling season' - who knew?

This year there are some exciting new cookie related things to look forward to.  For those that have gluten sensitivities, there are now 2 cookie options for you, the newcomer to the cookie scene, Caramel Chocolate Chip, joins Toffee-tastic for gluten free options, and gives us 10 cookie flavors to pick from.  For more info about the current cookie lineup and gluten free flavors, click here!

In related girl scout cookie news, there are now 'Digital Cookie' pages, which means you don't have to be embarrassed about how many boxes of Thin Mints you put on the paper order sheet in the break room at the office because you can now order cookies online!

Something to keep in mind, though, you'll still need an actual Girl Scout connection to make an online order, you can't just pop on and order from anyone.  Get this though, there is an actual app that allows you to find local troops for cookie season.  Info about online ordering and locating troops can be found here!

From Samoas to Tagalongs, and beyond, happy ordering!
