NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Girl Scout cookie season has arrived!
The North Hills Service Unit cookie drop took place Wednesday in North Little Rock.
Girl Scout leaders, co-Leaders and volunteers picked up cases of cookies at this “mega-drop.”
Booth sales in front of local storefronts will begin Friday, Feb. 21 and continue through Sunday, March 15.
“They learn leadership skills, business skills, customer skills – some of them are really shy and it helps them come out of their shell and learn to talk to people and things like that. So there are a lot of things that they are learning within the cookie program,” says Heather Stovall, Girl Scout Troop Leader.
Along with the long time favorites – Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Girl Scout S’mores, a fresh lemon cookie, the Lemon-Up was newly introduced.
The cookie program has been around for more than 100 years with more than 28 different flavor varieties.
Girl Scout Cookies are $5 a box.
