MINOT, ND The highly anticipated Girl Scout Cookie season is almost here.

After having to adapt to the start of the pandemic last year, local troops have declared themselves ready to sell as many boxes as possible this year.

Members of the local 13631 Girl Scout Troop said they were ready to run.

This cookie season, I can’t wait to try out different ways to deliver cookies to people, said Elizabeth, a member of the troop.

This year, the troupe said they hope to achieve their goal of selling at least 1,500 boxes for very special purposes.

Starting with this cookie season, we really want to go to Yellowstone so we want to sell all the cookies we can. And this is my last year and we really want to have an adventure in my last year, said Olivia, a member of the troupe.

Members said last year’s sales season collapsed due to the COVID-19 pandemic which closed the stands.

One of the hardest parts was not being able to go out and sell cookies anymore. It really hit us and we lost about 100 boxes from what we typically sell, Elizabeth said.

Members are now saying they are adapting, including drive-thru kiosks as well as their in-person kiosks.

I’m really excited to see how things go because it’s going to be so different, especially if I’m going to try the drive in cookie stand so everyone can stay in their car, and I’m a little excited to see how many people are going to buy, Troop member Haley said.

Girl Scouts are also encouraging digital orders that they now accept.

We also have our online store where you can type in your zip code and buy online or you can find a booth and go there and buy your cookies, said Shelby, a troop member.

The in-person sale is expected to begin this Friday, February 19. Adapt during COVID-19 to keep cookies coming.

The Girl Scout cookie finder app is available for free in the App Store, you can place your orders in advance online here.
