WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Starting this weekend, it’s Girl Scout Cookie time.

This year, the Girl Scouts have nine different flavors to choose from. New to the selection this year are Cranberry Citrus Crisps and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. Organizers say millions of americans have problems eating food with gluten – so this cookie is just for them.

Leaders also say the cookie sales go beyond what’s in the box by teaching the girls valuable life lessons.

“The Girl Scouts learn to set goals through Girl Scout Cookie sales,” membership director Debbie Todd said. “They learn money management, decision making. They learn people skills.”

The cost is $3.50 per box. If your mouth is watering, don’t worry, you have from now until the first week in March to get your hands on some of these tasty treats.
