Metro Atlanta Girl Scouts are now taking orders for Girl Scout Cookies, with expected delivery in mid-February. On Feb. 17, you’ll see booths popping up at shopping centers and other locations around Intown.

What’s new for 2012? To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Scouts a new cookie called Savannah Smiles (it’s lemon-flavored) has been added to the line-up to honor founder Juliette Gordon Low, who started the first troop in the port city.

If you don’t have cash, that may not be a problem. Many Girl Scouts will be armed with mobile credit card readers so you can get your Thin Mint and Tagalongs without hunting down an ATM. There’s also the Cookie Locator App for the Android and iPhone to find out where the treats are being sold.

Boxes of cookies are $3.50 each. You know you want a box – or five.
