Since 2014, the Girl Scouts have maintained a Digital Cookie platform to connect cookie fans with local councils to purchase the sweet treats from.

It's the return of temptation and indulgence: Girl Scout cookie sales are set to resume.

January 12 - or 7 hours, 32 minutes and 35 seconds as of this writing - marks the beginning of Girl Scout cookie presales for Idaho's Girl Scout of Silver Sage Council.

Lockwood said the rise in technology has impacted the ways scouts track their cookie sales.

"All across Nebraska, Girl Scouts are doing unbelievable things made possible by the sale of every package of Girl Scout Cookies", said Fran Marshall, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska. "They use it to fund their activities".

"The takeaway for the girls from this event is to gain general skills that will help them in a future career, but also learn about the cookie program and have fun", said Lockwood.

With a fun, robust, hands-on interface, the Digital Cookie platform is an incredible learning experience for every girl.

The coastguard said that five of its ships, two Dornier aircraft and two helicopters had joined the search. The last contact it established was around 10.30 am, with an air traffic control manned from an oil rig.

"Much of the cookie money goes to Columbus for our council for programming for the girls", said Parsons.

Cookie customers and the public can ask Girl Scouts for a secret code and enter it online for a chance to win.

Now, during the six-week cookie season, scouts can customize their cookie sales. "The way our first responders rallied this year, we thought it was especially important to demonstrate how thankful we are to them".

Allen's troop is made up of 69 girls, one-third of which took advantage of the website previous year.

"Girl Scout camp is awesome", she says. "And I love selling cookies". "We have 1,624 boxes of cookies coming in today".

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois serves more than 17,000 girls and 4,000 adult members in 38 counties.
