Truckloads of Girl Scout cookies ready to be sold

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- It's been a highly anticipated time of year, but finally, Girl Scouts here in the Grand Valley will start selling cookies on Sunday.

250,000 boxes of cookies were dropped off at Lincoln Park.

The Girl Scouts use the money from their cookie sales to pay for things like Girl Scout Camp and backpacking trips, and in some cases can go toward community service work.

But even though it’s the largest girl-led business in the world, some of the scouts say its not just their business skills that have improved.

"Personally, I had a lot of trouble when I was younger with talking to people especially, with my teachers. I really wouldn't stand up for myself if I got a bad grade or something like that. So now at this age, if I have something that I need fixed or talked about, I am actually willing to go up and talk about it," said Girl Scout Cadet, Faith Graves.

According to the Girl Scouts website, the number one selling cookie is Thin Mints.
