It's that time of year when January first is far enough in the rearview mirror that our diet goals seem less important now, thats right its springtime, when Girl Scout cookies are readily available. Summer Joy interviewed one troop to see how and why they do it.
When walking into grocery stores this month you might hear the sound of a familiar cheer. "If you're a girl scout and you know it and you really want to show it, do all three, hurray," sang two girl scouts.
Through 20 mile hour winds and rain, the girl scouts stood strong on Sunday as they sold their famous cookies.
"We are selling cookies to raise money to go to Lagoon and people can also donate boxes of cookies that will go to the Red Cross," said Serena Harris, a Girl Scout.
Not only can these cookies benefit the Red Cross, but 70 percent of the proceeds go directly back to the girls scout in that area. To help with community events, going to camp, resources and more. Many of the group meetings also cover topics like friendship and bullying, and Kami tells me what her favorite part of being a girl scout really is.
"My favorite part is when we get new cookies and we get to try them," said Kami Rhodes, a Girl Scout.
Serena also has some advice when buying these delicious treats.
"Girl Scout cookies are almost out of season, so I would come and buy them right now before they are all gone. They are also fresh right now and the thin mints have the most cookies in them so they are basically the best cookies," added Serena.
"Girl Scouts Rock," added Kami.
These cookies will be on sale through the 21st and they can be found outside of many grocery store locations. You can go online to find out specific locations or download the official Girl Scout cookie finder app.
