It's Girl Scout Cookie season again, and there are plenty of ways for Napa Valley residents to get their hands on a box of Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Samoas.
Cookie sales are on starting today, Sunday, Feb. 10 and and continue for several weeks.
If your town in Napa Valley is not listed above, enter your ZIP code into this Girl Scouts’ Cookie Locator page. A new Girl Scout cookie iPhone or Android app also can help customers find cookie sales.
Two important things to know:
- Mango Crèmes are crispy cookies featuring mango, coconut, vanilla and Nutrifusion™. The cookie is vitamin-packed, but don't go replacing a salad with Mango Crèmes. A three-cookie serving also contains 180 calories and four grams of saturated fat.
- A box of cookies is now $4, up from $3.50 last year. The troop keeps 50 cents from every box sold.
Although cookie sales are a fundraiser, the program also aims to teach Girl Scouts skills. This year's boxes have been updated to include stories of what Girl Scouts do today, the fun they have doing it, and all that girls learn from the experience.
To keep your cookie jar stocked long after Girl Scout Cookie sales cease, here is one of the original Girl Scout Cookie recipes.
