TROOP 4475 MEMBERS (left to right) Maggie Goodney, Ella Wolovitch and Alice Killoran sold Girl Scout cookies in front of Larchmont Charter High School last year.

Iconic Girl Scout cookies are coming back to town. Starting Fri., Feb. 9, you will see Scout troops selling their $6 boxes in front of supermarkets, on sidewalks and in front of homes. This is known as “boothing.” However, if you are lucky enough to have a Girl Scout in your life, online ordering began Jan. 16.

Girl Scouts of the USA is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles serves 35,500 girls. Last year, they sold 4.9 million boxes of cookies.

Cookie-selling season allows girls to work as a team, practice public speaking, manage money, enhance their people skills and make decisions. For every box sold, the troop gets a monetary percentage that the girls use for community service projects and educational travel.

So the next time you see troop members hawking their product, remember there’s more to those cookies than just a dessert.

And what’s the most popular flavor? It’s a tie between Thin Mints and Samoas. All flavors are on sale until Sun., March 10.
