Troop 53 of Nevada will be having a Girl Scout cookie booth at Ben Franklin on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The cookies are $3.50 a box and there are a couple of new things this year.

First, we have a new cookie, Cranberry Citrus Crisps, made with nine grams of whole grain. The other new thing this year is that when you purchase five boxes of cookies, you can enter a drawing for a chance to win a year’s supply of Girl Scout cookies!

If you don’t want to purchase cookies for yourself, you can purchase some to be donated to the Convoy of Hope through our Cookie Share. The customer would pay for the cookies, but instead of taking them home, the box of cookies is given to the Convoy of Hope program. To learn more about Convoy of Hope, visit the website at

The girls will be using their money from cookies sales this year to help offset the cost of purchasing the badges they earn, as well as to help fund a trip they are planning to the Mall of America this spring.

Cookie sales will end on March 16. For any questions about Girl Scouts or Girl Scout cookies, you can call Charlotte at 382-3901.
