Girl Scout National Cookie Weekend kicks off

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Girl Scout cookie season is finally here and yesterday marked the start of National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.

Today several troops in the CSRA loaded up cars with cookies to be sold at booths across the area.

The cookies will be sold at grocery stores and businesses from February 14 to March 16.

The classic Thin Mints and Samoas as well as new favorites like the Savannah Smiles will be available for purchase.

The girls say cookie season is always a popular time of the year.

"Cookies only come once a year, so this is people's one time a year to get their favorite cookie," says Girl Scout Rachel Taylor.
