The annual Girl Scout Cookie Program begins this weekend for Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois.  January 9-11 is the first Cookie Booth Weekend of the season.  At these Cookie Booths, customers can purchase cookies directly from girls at various locations throughout the Riverbend. 

Tricia Higgins, Girl Scouts Communications & Marketing Manager, says you might find these booths anywhere.  She tells The Big Z you can also order online.

Higgins says the Thin Mint remains the most popular cookie they sell, but the peanut butter cookies hold their own on the sales charts as do the Samoas, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.  There is a new raisin cookie this year too.
