More than 200 local Girl Scouts will gather to build their cookie business plans, learn selling skills from leaders and each other, and team build around the 2018 sale.

The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council in Houston, Texas, have made it possible to indulge while also giving back to Hurricane Harvey first responders through the organizations new Cookies-4-Heroes program.

If you're insane about these delicious cookies and aren't sure if you can wait another year to order more, read on: we've rounded up some recipes that come pretty close to the originals. Wait, what.? Yep, they're warning residents about the ever so addicting Girl Scout Cookie and how the season is in full swing.

There are eight varieties of cookies available this year, including Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles, gluten-free Toffee-tastic and Girl Scout S'mores.

Melanie Gabriel Hastings and Makayla McCartney-Pike have been selling Girl Scout cookies together ever since they were Brownies.'One of my favorite parts of selling cookies is hanging out with my best friend' Mela
There's also an option to donate boxes of cookies to soldiers overseas something Melanie has done since she started selling cookies four years ago

Plus, for the second year, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is giving away a new vehicle.

Peterson adds the success of the Cookie Program helps to support the troops and invest in their communities.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the cookies will stay with Southern Arizona. Cookie customers and the public can ask Girl Scouts for a secret code and enter it at a special link online for a chance to win the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Car. "They use it to fund their activities. A lot of the troops will take part of the money and pay for troop badges and uniforms".

You can buy cookies January 13 through March 4.
