Get your sweet tooth ready. Local Girl Scout troops delivered cookies Tuesday.
In Springfield, 17 local troops sorted through 30,000 boxes of cookies, getting them ready for their eager recipients.
And there were a lot of orders this year. The Girl Scouts say their local sales were up 47 percent from last year.
“I just think more girls are getting out there and more people are seeing how it’s helping troops. It’s really helping girls with business and leadership skills and money skills, and I think they’re just excited to get out there and sell,” said Mandi Bloomer, Program Manager.
Among the most popular cookies locally are Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tag-A-Longs.
