Girl Scouts organization holds annual ‘Count n Go’ event
JACKSON, Tenn. — Girl Scout cookies arrived this weekend, and the troops held their annual “Count n Go.”
On Saturday, between 35 to 40 troops picked up their initial cookie orders.
According to members, over 520,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies were loaded into awaiting cars and vans driven by Girl Scout volunteers.
Cookie flavors include peanut butter, s’mores, thin mints, lemon cookies and toffee flavor.
“Here, we probably have somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 to 160 vehicles going through here today, so lots of cookies going to be hitting the streets,” Girl Scouts volunteer Debra Martin said.
The two top sellers were s’mores and thin mints.
Cookie sales will begin Friday, Feb. 22. You can find more information, including locations where scouts will sell cookies, at www.girlscouts.org.
