Because of the nasty COVID-19 pandemic, even the Girl Scouts are coming up with innovative ways to sell and deliver cookies.

The Girl Scouts will begin selling cookies this February 1st, and according to an article in the New York Times, select markets with more on the way will be using the food delivery service Grubhub for online ordering and then delivery. More markets where Grubhub will be taking orders and delivering will be announced during "Girl Scout cookie season", which normally runs between January and April.

One would normally find the Scouts standing in front of select business locations, going door to door, or having mom or dad bring in the cookie order form to work, and some of that may still be happening here in Maine.  But, chances are you may be able to place your cookie order on the Grubhub website or it's delivery app.  Scouts would then "fulfill" their orders and track their delivery via the site as well.

Find a Girl Scout who is selling cookies, or exactly how and where they'll be for sale in the eastern Maine area by entering your zip code HERE.  Sales begin in 18 days.

Judith Batty, the interim chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts, said in a statement. “This season, our girls will continue to exemplify what the cookie program taught them — how to think like entrepreneurs, use innovative sales tactics and pivot to new ways of doing business when things don’t go according to plan.”

Besides Peanut Butter Patties, Samoas and Thin Mints, the Scouts introduced a new cookie this year, the Toast-Yay!  The Toast-Yay! is a cookie inspired by French Toast dipped in icing.
