Girl Scout cookies go digital

Posted: Updated:
 You will now be able to buy Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties with the click of a mouse.

For the first time in history, Girl Scout cookies will be sold online through a national platform called Digital Cookie.

This breaks tradition for the 112-year-old organization.

The Girl Scouts liked door to door sales because it was considered a learning experience for young scouts.

But, they say the internet can also teach the girls valuable skills.

Online sales of Girl Scout cookies will launch December 12.  Traditional cookie selling season in Eastern Iowa begins in mid-February.
