Here’s one of those things that help us muddle through the winter doldrums. The Girl Scout Cookies are here.
They’ve arrived in La Vista to supply the 2014 campaign.
Fifty thousand cases are being loaded into cars and trucks on their way to prepare for the start of this year’s cookie program that gets rolling on February 7.
The Girl Scout cookie program is the largest girl-led business in the country. It’s also the primary source of funding for Girl Scout troop activities during the year.
Alongside the traditional choices this year, there’s a little something new.
Traci Cherrington, with Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska said, “It's called the Cranberry Citrus Crisp. It's kind of an orangey, citrus flavored cookie, with real cranberry bits, nine grams of whole grains and no artificial preservatives, sweeteners. It's kind of a healthy cookie that tastes delicious."
The ordering begins on Friday and the program goes through March 9th.
