Girl Scout cookies are coming to a door near you

Orders are being taken now fo Girl Scout cookies.

The time of year we've all been waiting for, Girl Scout cookies are coming to a door near you.

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri met up at the south Mcdonald's in Kirksville Saturday morning for their annual cookie kickoff event.

The girls picked up their fresh order forms and enjoyed breakfast before starting those door to door visits selling cookies.

The girls said cookie sale season is more than just another fundraiser, it's also an opportunity to build character.

"You do business skills and leadership. Your troop can do activities and go to camp and stuff," said Senior Girl Scout Drew Adams.

This year all of the popular cookies like Thin Mints are returning. But there will also be 3 new cookies to look forward to: Savannah Smiles, Dulce De Leche, and Thank You Berry Much.

The cookies will be delivered and ready for pick up at the Crossing Church in late February.
