Do you like Girl Scout Cookies, but hate seeing the smile on a young girl’s face when you buy a box from her? Your day has arrived.

The Girl Scouts announced yesterday that they’ll be selling their cookies online for the first time ever this year.

They released a statement saying they resisted selling online because face-to-face sales were a good learning experience for girls . . . but they realized they were leaving a ton of money on the table.

No, wait . . . that’s not the reason they gave. They say they’re selling online because, quote, “[This] will also allow customers to help girls learn 21st-century skills grounded in technology.”

It looks like each local Girl Scouts region will handle the sales and distribution in their area, so your money will still go to your local Girl Scouts.

The cookies are set to go on sale on the 12th at GirlScouts.org.
