ST. PAUL, Minn.--Those once-a-year treats are back and available through March 23. This year find Girl Scout Cookies by using the Cookie Locator app. You can download the free app by dialing GSCOOKIES from a smartphone or visiting Girl Scouts River Valleys.

In 2013, local Girl Scouts earned more than $2.9 million for their troops. This money helps troops pay for troop activities, community service projects, and uniforms.

When purchasing cookies this year remember that you can also purchase cookies to be donated to a local nonprofit or men and women serving in the military.
