Which will come in handy when the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas begin their annual cookie-ganza on Jan. 10 with door-to-door sales. This year, says Northeast council spokeswoman Monica Gonzalez, the group hopes to sell 3 1/2 million cookies in its 32-county area. Frankly, that doesn’t sound like very many, given there are about 3 million people in it – barely one cookie a person.
The smartphone app, available for both Apple and Android products, will help you find the nearest location selling cookies, based on zip code, when the girls start selling them at grocery stores on Feb. 22.
The app also lets you vote for your favorite cookie — Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Dulce de Leche, Thank U Berry Munch, or Savannah Smiles. The price this year is $3.50 a box.
