The Girl Scouts in North East Texas kicked-off their cookie season on Jan. 17.
In Waxahachie, troop 4010, led by Misty Scott, has been selling away since then.
“Everyone in our troop picked up cookies on Friday or Saturday at the church,” Scott said. “And she(Gracie) actually started selling that night.”
Scott has been the troop leader of 4010 for five years. She gets to work alongside her daughter, Junior Cadette Gracie Scott. For two years, Gracie has been the top seller of the group.
Since the start of this year’s cookie season, Gracie has already sold 1,811 boxes of cookies. Last year, she sold 7,173 boxes. In total, Gracie has 45 booth sales scheduled for this season.
Gracie shared her favorite thing bout being a Girl Scout, "The activities,” Gracie said. “We get to learn about teamwork a lot.”
This year, a new cookie has been added to the list. Lemon-Ups are being sold in select areas. If that doesn’t appeal to fans, there are plenty of others from which to choose.
Fans should also expect a new look in the packaging of the cookies.
The Girl Scouts are selling a total of nine cookies this year, according to their official website.
The cookies being sold in the North East, TX area are made by the Little Brownie Bakers (LBB). These cookies include the Super Six Flavors, which are: Samoas, Thin mints, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils and Lemon-Ups. These are $5 per box.
The Specialty Flavors include, Girl Scout S'mores and Toffee-tastic. These are $6 per box.
There are about 10 troops total in the Waxahachie area and many more in Ellis County. Girl Scouts in North East Texas will be selling cookies until March 1.
Additionally, the Girl Scouts have a program called Care to Share, for those that don't want to buy cookies for themselves. This program allows people to donate boxes to the military or local first responders.
