Girl Scout Cookie Sales Are Going Digital

Thanks to the fact that they've been around for nearly century now, Girl Scout Cookies have become an irreplaceable icon of American food culture. Many will unwaveringly declare them to be the most delicious food to ever walk this planet (and we totally do, too). You’ve probably bickered with your friends about whether Samoas or Thin Mints are the best and you most definitely perk up if you hear that a troop is selling them in your neighborhood (who are we kidding? You already know when and where they're being sold). Now, you'll be able to order your cookies online!

Since the birth of this phenomenon over a century ago, everything relating to the addictive treats has changed. We’ve witnessed everything from new box designs to to new varieties that were sugar-free (we’ll spare you our opinion of those). But the biggest shake-up is about to hit us all: Girl Scouts are getting with the times by going digital!

For the first time ever, you’ll be able buy your favorite variety without having to leave your dorm or even open your door to salesgirls. The newly approved program, fittingly named Digital Cookie, will operate through individual council websites and a mobile app. When it comes to the website, Girl Scouts will have their own pages and have the power to allow their customers online access. In other words, we hope you know a Girl Scout, because it sounds like it may be invite-only!

If you’re already whipping out your credit card, ready to snap up your fave cookies, we hate to break it to you, but you may have to wait. The program will operate only in a limited number of areas this month, while the nationwide launch will take place in January. Start counting down the days!

And for those who still enjoy conversing with the adorable budding entrepreneurs, rest assured that the original business model of selling face-to-face will remain intact. You'll still see your favorite Girl Scouts out and about!

We don’t know about you, but we're beyond psyched for the national program launch next year! We just hope the organization can keep up with demand. Which will you order first, collegiettes?!
