NEW YORK (WTVM) - You no longer have to wait for cookie season to come around each year - Girl Scout Cookies will now be made available online anytime for sale.
Cookies like Samoas and Savannah Smiles are now available online via Digital Cookie, a groundbreaking new addition to the program. The program allows for citizens to buy cookies online from a local chapter scout.
The program allows Girl Scouts to reach those who they would not be able to reach otherwise. With the new program, the Girl Scouts learn about e-mail marketing, finance and online communication.

A majority of the 112 Girl Scout councils across the country are testing the program during this cookie season, and more councils are expected to join the online movement by the end of 2015.
