The Girl Scouts of the USA are going digital to sell their famous goodies after almost 100 years of traditional in-person transactions.
The new program, called Digital Cookie, allows Scouts to take orders via e-mail. For the Web version, customers can visit a scout’s personal cookie Web page that tracks cookie sales, days remaining and percentage of goal reached.
You will still be buying your Samoas from an individual Girl Scout, and only during the annual cookie season. Probably a good thing that I can’t just order them up at any time.
