If you need to satisfy your craving for some Samoas or Thin Mints, the last thing you want to do is waste time running around town, and last time I checked randomly asking children if they are Girl Scouts is frowned upon.
If you can’t wait for the cookies you ordered from your co-worker’s daughter, download the Girl Scouts Cookie Finder app for the iPhone and iPad.
This free app will help you hunt down the closest Girl Scout Cookie sale booth, using the iPhone’s GPS to figure out where you are. The app includes the locations and the times for nearby cookie sales.
Once you find a Girl Scout Cookie sale, you can add it to your calendar or ask the app to push a notification to your iPhone when the time approaches. If you can’t wait and are willing to travel for a box of Tagalongs, sort by date or look on the map to find some Girl Scout cookies you can buy right now.
The app also lets you check out descriptions of each cookie, in case you can’t make up your mind about which kind you want to buy.
If you can’t find a booth sale right now, check back in a few days. Girl Scout cookie booth sales start on February 17th and run through March 11th.
After sales end you’ll have to wait another year for cookies, so I suggest stocking up and tossing some in your freezer. If you need a reminder to take them out, just tell Siri to remind you to set some out in the morning so they are ready to eat when you get home from work.
I’m a fan of any app that makes it easier to find Samoas. What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?
