ST. LOUIS – Girl Scout cookie sales begin Saturday in St. Louis.

The cookie program for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri will offer eight varieties: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, Thank U Berry Munch, and Dulce de Leche.

At $4 per box, the proceeds benefit local Girl Scouts. Orders will first be taken from Jan. 11 through Feb. 2, and then again from Feb. 3 through March 16.

On Feb. 7 and 8, customers will be able to purchase cookies to be donated to the USO of Missouri or a charitable organization of the troop's choice.

Cookie booths and cookie cupboards will open Feb. 26.

If you would like to order cookies but do not know a Girl Scout, fill out a form on the Girl Scouts' website, and a nearby troop leader will contact you.
