As a former Girl Scout, there are a few important things to know: the Girl Scout Promise and Girl Scout Lawt, all the camp songs and the perfect pitch for selling Girl Scout cookies in your town.
We still know the Girl Scout Law, we haven’t forgotten the lyrics (and accompanying dance steps) to “Make New Friends” and we’ll always remember ringing the neighbors' doorbells with a Brownie sash on, ready to recite why they needed at least 20 boxes of Thin Mints.
Girl Scout cookie season is upon us, which means that you now have the chance to buy 20 boxes of Thin Mints, if you so desire. And we're sure you do.
So, where can you buy Girl Scout cookies in Parsippany? You have a few options:
- Ask a Parsippany girl. There are a number of Brownie and Girl Scout troops in town, which means a lot of young women are involved in the entrepreneurial effort. We wager a quick question about cookies will get you the info you need in a hurry—head to the Parsippany Patch Facebook page and scroll down and you'll see what happened when we posed a question about cookies. Deliveries are expected at the end of February, we were told, and we expect to see sales all over the township. One date has been confirmed already: Girl Scout cookies will be sold at the Boonton Walmart April 6 from 1-4 p.m.
- Visit the Girl Scout website and enter your zip code in the “Find Cookies!” browser for the nearest Girl Scout Council to buy from in your community.
- Call your local Girl Scout council and find their information here.
- Download the free Cookie Finder app on your smartphone for sales in your neighborhood.
Also, if you need to be reacquainted with your old favorites and newcomers, here is a list of available Girl Scout cookies for purchase:
- Thin Mints
- Savannah Smiles
- Dulce de Leche
- Mango Cremes
- Thank U Berry Munch
Happy scouting for cookies! And can someone be sure to save us a box of Trefoils? Mmm, Trefoils.
