CultureMap Austin -- Just as we’re trying to shed those extra pounds that we put on during the holiday season, Girl Scouts soon will be tempting us with their iconic cookies.

The annual ritual of Girl Scouts hitting the streets to peddle bestseller Thin Mints and other goodies kicks off January 15 in the Austin area. The Central Texas region of the Girl Scouts expects to raise more than $8 million from this year’s 39-day cookie campaign, which ends February 22. Each box sells for $4.

To find out where Girl Scout cookies are available in your neighborhood, use the organization’s online “Find Cookies” function. You even can download a cookie-finding app for your smartphone. Of course, you’re bound to spot a cookie-selling girl at Walmart or HEB, or you’re bound to be hit up by a coworker or relative who’s the parent of a Girl Scout.

This year, Girl Scouts will be promoting six kinds of cookies, including a flavor that was introduced in 2012. The organization describes the relatively new Savannah Smiles cookie as a “zesty, crispy, powder sugar-coated lemon cookie that’s bound to become a classic.”
