They're back - Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and more. If you know a Girl Scout, chances are she's already used her savvy sales speech on you.

Last weekend, nearly 80 Girl Scouts in the Sunset Vista neighborhood, where mostly Gilbert and Chandler scouts live, unloaded an entire semi-truck full of cookies - 6,994 cases (83,928 boxes) - to be counted and distributed for pick-up by 53 Girl Scout troops.

This week, the Girl Scouts will be selling cookies in their neighborhoods, and cookie booths will be springing up in front of neighborhood businesses and grocery stores starting Feb. 10.

The cookie program provides the girls with a range of enriching and skill-building experiences. Proceeds support activities for the year -- from community service and leadership projects to summer camp, travel opportunities and events.

This year' sale coincides with the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting. To celebrate, the girls are selling a new cookie - a lemon cooler called the Savannah Smile.

To find a cookie booth near you, go to online.

Much sugary goodness awaits you.
