National Girl Scout Cookie Day is on Friday, February 8
In honor of National Girl Scout Cookie Day, families can sample (and purchase!) their favorite sweet treats at spots around Manhattan.
Wed Feb 6 2013
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—for cookie lovers, that is. On Friday, February 8, Girl Scouts (and their fans) will celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Day with—what else?—lots and lots of cookies. Young businesswomen around the country will sell and deliver their sugary wares using the leadership and money management skills they learned in their troop. In Manhattan, families can make their way to the official Girl Scout Cookie Truck to sample Trefoils, Tagalongs and Samoas for free (and buy their favorites) and pose for a cookie photo op. The green truck will roll through the city at various times and locations, so check below to see when you can get your Thin Mint fix. An even bigger perk than happy taste buds? You’ll be supporting the largest girl-led business in the world.
