Looking for Girl Scout Cookies? There’s An App for That
Thanks to Facebook, I am being given many, many opportunities to buy Girl Scout Cookies. Unfortunately, most of them live either way across the huge metropolis that is Los Angeles, or clear across the country. Since there is only a Cub Scout in my own household, I’ve had to find another way to get my yearly fix. How did I do it?
You guessed it – there’s an app to find your Girl Scout Cookie connection! The Official Girl Scouts of the USA Cookie Finder (sounds impressive, doesn’t it?) It uses GPS to show you cookie sales going on near you, so you can easily track down a Scout to purchase cookies from. You can sort findings by date, radius, or view them on a map – deciding how far you’re willing to travel for those cookies.
You can’t feel too guilty in indulging: this only happens once a year. Buying Girl Scout Cookies also supports Girl Scouts – “To Help Girls Do Great Things”. How else are you going to get your fix for Thin Mints…Tagalongs…Samoas? Think of this app as GPS for cookies. And of course, it’s social too – you can share you cookie location findings with others by e-mail, posting to Facebook or Tweeting.
The app also has all sorts of information about sales around the country, start and end dates of local cookie seasons, and other nifty stuff – like voting for your favorite variety. But let’s face it: just tell us where the cookies are!
