If you're ready to make a sweet investment in a girl's future, now's your chance.

The Girl Scouts will be taking pre-order for Girl Scout cookies beginning Saturday.

Mary Crumbaker, who manages the Girl Scout Cookie Program for the Arizona Cactus Pine Council, said you might feel a little better about indulging knowing that your support helps these girls in more ways than one.

"We really make sure the girls have learning opportunities when they are out selling cookies," she said. "They spend time making business plans and goals, they learn a little about advertising, they are out selling and, yes, it is a money-earning project for them."

The monies earned help fund special activities and outings.

You might notice a few changes with the packaging this year, but all your favorites are back. The most popular are Thin Mints and Samoas.

Last year, approximately 18,000 girls sold just under three million boxes of cookies and organizers expect to beat that number this year.

Girl Scout troops will be out in front of grocery stores around the Valley beginning Feb. 16.
