Michiana Girl Scouts to begin annual cookie sale

While cookie-giving programs vary by each Girls Scouts of the United States of America council, many offer the option to donate cookies to local organizations.

Abilene area girl scouts are expected to pick up more than 50,000 packages of cookies Saturday to kick-off the 2018 season.

According to Silver Sage Council spokeswoman Erin Gorringe, the Girl Scout S'mores cookie, which was first introduced a year ago, sold out in presales before the general public was able to purchase them. "This "Cookie Cartel" is run primarily by young girls who lure you in with a good cause story and soon you're addicted to these dangerously delicious things".

Throughout the years, many different flavors have come and gone (does anyone remember the Lemon Chalet Cremes or chocolate-covered, caramel-filled Juliettes?) but a few remain as staples: Thin Mints, Do-si-dos, and shortbread Trefoils are the best-selling varieties.

Plus, for the second year, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is giving away a new vehicle.

One hundred percent of the revenue from cookie sales stays in Nebraska. In addition, the group will host various events during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend from February 23 to 25. "A lot of the troops will take part of the money and pay for troop badges and uniforms". Customers can make $4 donations that represent a box of cookies that will be given to Soldier's Angels and Riverbend Troop Support.
