NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Girl Scout cookie season has arrived!

The North Hills Service Unit cookie drop took place Wednesday in North Little Rock.

“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.
