Need Girl Scout Cookies? There's an App for That!

Starting today, Girl Scout Cookies are now just an app away! With the Girl Scout Cookie Locator app you can…
  • Search for sales in your neighborhood
  • Get details on your favorite Girl Scout Cookies
  • Have fun and find your Cookie Personality

The application, which is available for iPhones and iPod Touch, uses either GPS or manually-entered zip codes, cities or states to find cookie booths near the customer. The app will conveniently map those locations and add the sale information to the iPhone or iPod calendar. In addition to locating the booths, customers can learn about their favorite cookies, including nutritional value and ingredients. Cookie lovers can take a fun, interactive quiz to learn their “cookie personalities” as well.

“The app is one more way that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls important business, leadership and technology skills,” said Hilary Perry, Director of Communications & Advocacy.

Note: The Cookie Locator App only works in Council territories that use Little Brownie Bakers. Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama uses Little Brownie Bakers.
