If you’re lucky, the daughter of one of your friends or coworkers is in the Girl Scouts. You don’t have to think about when Girl Scout Cookie season starts or where to find the elusive little booths. For the rest of us, there’s the Cookie Locator.

The Cookie Locator, which debuted in 2001, is a smartphone app that lets you find where Girl Scout Cookie Booths have been set up in your area from March 1 to 24. Just enter your zip code or allow location services, and the app will show you the closest booth.

Yes, we agree — it’s awesome.

In addition to finding a Cookie Booth, you can browse fun facts about your favorite kind of Girl Scout Cookie, find what cookie personality matches you, and share the results on Facebook and Twitter.

If you don’t have a smartphone, don’t worry — you can use the Cookie Locator and enter your zip code.

And for those of you wondering why the Girl Scouts haven’t just made the jump to selling Girl Scout Cookies online, the answer is simple. It’s not just about selling cookies.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls gain real-world experience in its five key skills — goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Find a booth and help a group of little girls develop these skills vital to successes later in life.
