Its that time of year to buy Girl Scout Cookies

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Cookie sales for the Girl Scouts have kicked off as an eighteen wheeler with more than 86 thousand boxes of Girl Scout Cookies pulled into Lubbock Saturday morning 600 girls and their families got to pick up their cookies.

Lines of girls and their parents snaked around the parking lot at the Science Spectrum. "It's a way for girls to get their hands on cookies in their hands today so they can get them out to the public tonight, we have new cookies this year called Shout Out and they are Belgian style caramelized cookie made from everything in your pantry", says one parent.

Troop leaders say they will be selling the cookies outside United and Wal-Marts across town. This year you can also expect to see some online sales. Some of the older girl scouts are taking to the web for the first time. Also, the crunchy fudge coated treats are packaged in an eco-friendly way which saves the scouts 150-thousand tons of materials.

There are eight variety boxes to choose from and each box cost $3.50. The Girl Scouts will sell cookies until March 6th. The proceeds benefit the troops and their community service projects.
