Girl scouts nationwide are celebrating a huge milestone this year, 100 years of girl scouting!
This weekend they're celebrating the centennial plus the start of cookie selling season! Door to door sales officially began Saturday.
In honor of the 100th year and the birthplace of the Girl Scouts Founder, Juliette Gordon Low, there's a new cookie-- it's called “Savannah Smiles” and it's a lemon cookie.
The first recorded girl scout cookie sale was in 1917 in Oklahoma.
"The troop there started it so that they could raise money to do community service projects just around their community and they sold cookies. They were about 2 dozen back then for about 10 cents and that's the first girl scout related cookie sale," said Communications Director for Girl Scouts in the Florida Panhandle, Holly Jones.
Door to door sales will continue until January 25th. The cookies will arrive in Panama City on February 18th and cookie booths will be set up around town the first weekend in March. A box of cookies is $3.50.
