Let’s face it — New York City is a tough place for the Girl Scouts to sell their cookies. It’s not like door-to-door sales work well, given stringent apartment regulations and all those white-gloved doormen barring entrance. Well, the clever girls have come up with a solution: cookie pop-up shops. Genius! After all, what city loves its cookie pop-ups more than New York?
D Guides has a roundup of the New York City shops, which include one per borough. For $4, you can order boxes or even cases of the classic cookies, including the Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, and Lemon Chalet Cremes. In addition, an app created by Little Brownie Baker shows other nearby locations where the Girl Scouts will be selling their cookies. Better stock up while you can — the sales are only lasting until May 5. After that, you’re stuck with black-market boxes sold on eBay.
