Your next box of Thin Mints is just a touch away!

With the app, the iPhone’s GPS will read your location and show you cookie sales nearby. All search results are easy to sort and view. All listings are sorted by date, radius, or you can view them all on a map. The app includes the most comprehensive information available and contains cookie sale data from around the country, including the start and end of local cookie sales.

“We have been in the midst of a huge technological transformation at Girl Scouts,” says Jamie Joyce – Vice President, Interactive Marketing, Girl Scouts of the USA. “By releasing this app we are more efficiently connecting customers to girls, and increasing consumer availability to one of America’s most popular products, Girl Scout Cookies.”
