Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Girl Scouts are back, and the gals in green have set up nearly 10,000 booths across the Greater Los Angeles area as they shoot for sweet treat domination during this year's cookie drive.

To make matters of hunting and gathering easier, lets's remember the immortal words of a giant blue monster: C is for Cookie Locator. The Girl Scouts have gone high tech with an online "Cookie Locator" which allows the cookie deprived to plug in a zip code and find the nearest booth. To buy cookies. Should I say cookies again? Cooooookkkkkkiiiiiiieeeeessss! Or get the app. Of course.

Eight cookie varieties are available for your face: Thin Mints, Samoas (happy 35th anniversary!), Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do Si Dos, Lemon Chalet Crèmes, Dulce de Leche, and Thank You Berry Munch. Samoas, which are celebrating their 35th anniversary, are L.A.'s second favorite cookie with more than 380,000 fans on Facebook, said a Girl Scout spokesperson, notes Chatsworth Patch. We're assuming Thin Mints reign supreme. Duh.

Cookie season ends March 20.
