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. Not sure where to buy them near you? You can plug your zip code into the cookie finder on the Scouts' website to find out. 

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

And just in case you were wondering just where all that cookie money goes, we did our homework.

According to the Girl Scouts of the United States 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.

I used to like Thin Mints the best, but then I discovered Tagalongs and Samoas. You really can't go wrong.

I know everyone has their own connection, but last year the girlscouts had a keosk up at the Hawthorn mall(if we even call it that anymore). They had a line a mile long. I thought that was a great idea. Went there last week and saw a store were nuns were making breads and goods. That was pretty cool. My favorite is the 5th one with coconut and carmel.oh, and by the way, Hi Great Gazoo!

Hello, Moe! The fifth one is the samoa, I believe.
