Girl Scout Cookies
March 12, 2012 by staff
Girl Scout Cookies, It’s a cookie; it’s a cause; it’s an annual sale and a 100th anniversary celebration.
Yes, it was Girl Scout cookie season and, the good news is, it still is.
Those who pre-ordered cookies on Staten Island are receiving their orders.
“The girls don’t really go door-to-door anymore. Most of them sell them through family and friends networking,” said Joan Ventriglia, Staten Island membership manager, Girl Scout Council of Greater New York.
However, if you were not approached by a Girl Scout or her helpful parent to order cookies, some alternatives are available for your annual fix of Thin Mints or Tag-a-longs.
From tomorrow to May 3, Girl Scout cookies will again be sold locally on a cash-and-carry basis — $4 a box — at a pop-up shop and at booth sales.
The pop-up shop can be found at the Staten Island Girl Scouts Service Center at 613 Midland Ave. Staff will be selling cookies Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m.
Booth sales are organized by troops and are held at supporting retail locations on the weekends.
Locations of booth sales are available online at girlscoutcookies.org, where an iphone app is also available for free download.
Last year, New Yorkers distinguished themselves as the top users of the app nationwide, with 31,914 downloads.
A part of American life for at least 80 years, Girl Scout cookie season provokes opinions on all-time favorites, and part of the marketing of the cookies includes providing those favorites while introducing new ones.
The offerings vary across the country according to councils, but every sale is required to include three perennial favorites: Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos, a peanut butter sandwich; and Trefoil or Shortbread.
