Friday, Feb. 8 is National Girl Scout Cookie Day, the day that millions of people all across the country look forward to, when the Girl Scouts of America are finally out in full force, selling their beloved Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, and other now-legendary cookies. But while you can order them on that day, your cookies still won’t be delivered until days later — unless you happen to live in New York, and decide to track down the Sweetery truck on that day.
The well-known treats truck has partnered with the Girl Scouts of America to sell cookies all over the city, from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on that day. You can buy boxes of the cookies directly off the truck, and proceeds will, as always, go toward the $790 million Girl Scout cookie program, which teaches girls five essential skills: goal-setting, decision-making, money management, business ethics, and people skills.
Here’s where the truck will be:
8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.: 42nd Street and Madison Avenue
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.:57th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues
2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.: Park Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.: Amsterdam Avenue between 70th and 71st Streets
So track them down, pick up a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies before everyone else can, and know that you’re helping to support a very good cause.
