Winter is the perfect sugar storm: Valentine’s Day candy goes on sale, Cadbury Creme Eggs hit the shelves and Girl Scout Cookie season begins. (Sorry, dentists.)
If you have a serious sweet tooth, we’re happy to inform you that tracking down a box of Thin Mints or Caramel deLites is about to become even easier.
For folks who work in a millennial-predominant office (meaning, none of your fellow colleagues have kids so you can't place an order for Peanut Butter Patties at work), the Girl Scouts of Greater New York offers two new ways for you to get your hands on all the boxes you can stomach.
Young ladies are selling all your favorite flavors at a temporary pop-up shop located at 1590 Lexington Avenue. The store opened today and operates every Wednesday through Friday (2pm–7pm), Saturdays (10am–6pm) and Sundays (1pm–5pm) until Saturday, May 4.
Another convenient way to get your cookies is to follow NYC’s first mobile Girl Scout Cookie Truck that will roam the city’s five boroughs during weekends. To find out where it’s stopping next, click here.
Just as an FYI: Here are all the New York locations where you can find your Shortbread among other varieties. As a reminder, with every box of Girl Scout cookies purchased, you’re helping these girls grow and thrive. Aside from all the useful skills the girls learn and inherit, all of the proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program in New York City help fund local Girl Scout activities and events, with $0.80 of the funds from each box going directly to the Girl Scout troop.
Hopefully that tidbit will make you feel better about splurging on the extra two boxes you weren’t expecting to buy but inevitably won't be able to resist. Seriously, why are Girl Scout Cookies so good? Did you know they have a S'mores flavor now?
