HOUSTON, (March 20, 2009) – If you have a sweet tooth for Girl Scouts cookies, this is your last chance to stock up on the classic American treat. The annual cookie sale, which helps raise money to fund local Girl Scout activities, is scheduled to end March 29.

This year’s cookie varieties include eight delectable choices: Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Caramel DeLites, Lemonades and the portion-controlled Daisy Go-Rounds. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank to satisfy your craving; they only cost $3.50 per box. All varieties are zero grams of trans fat per serving.

Not only are Girl Scout cookies one of America’s “guilty pleasures,” but selling cookies also teaches girls how to become successful and confident businesswomen. For more than 80 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have participated in the country's premiere entrepreneurial and economic literacy program.

From now until March 29, Girl Scout troops will be selling cookies at booths located outside of grocery stores and other retail venues all across 26 southeast Texas counties. To find out where the nearest cookie booth is to you, please call 1-888-GS-COOKIE or visit our online cookie finder at www.gssjc.org for more information.
