WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Cookies, cookies and more cookies. It’s called the mega drop — Girl Scout cookies have arrived and are ready to be delivered.

“Over a million boxes of cookies in one day,” said Jean DeCamilla with the Girl Scouts’ Heart of Central California. “We have it down to science.”

The boxes dropped off Saturday are for the entire Northern California region. It takes a lot to get all these calories moved — hundreds of volunteers in fact.

Troop leaders said they were pleased with the mega drop system.

“Very organized and easy,” said Wendy Chenkovich with Troop 507. “We have 95 cases of a variety of cookies. This is my first year doing this and I’m pretty impressed.”

They’ll be delivering all your favorites, from caramel delights to peanut butter patties.

The young girls were also impressed with the cookie operation.

“It’s exciting. It’s really fun,” Andrea Jensen said. “It’s kind of cool to see how many cookies there are. I pulled up and it was unbelievable. I was shocked.”

And they are already preparing their best sales pitch for you.
“I state my name, the troop number and I give a little background to the troop and what we’re doing,” Jensen said. “I give them their options and usually that’s enough.”

Local Girl Scouts expect to earn more than $1 million from the annual cookie sales, which starts Feb. 24 and runs through March 18.

    When they come a knocking, i’ll get out the old wallet and fork over the cash for those cookie delights…
    Just so you all know, they do freeze well too….

    I used to be a girl scout, so were my daughters, but we no longer support the organization. It doesn’t stand for anything Juliet Lowe founded it for and the more the leaders start looking into the people running ths show they will start leaving too.
    Aside from the fact the cookies are so overpriced, the troops get partically nothing for all the days of selling them. Keebler and Mothers make ones just as comparable for a third of the price.

      TLor, You are so right. I no longer support the girl scouts or united way.
      In the ’70 a troop got .25 per box of cookies sold received .75 from a calendar but counsel pushes the cookies for their money. It is not what Juliet Lowe founded.

      2. sally says:

        Who the $%^% is Juliet Lowe? and who cares this is about the kids!!!!!!!!

    2. Matt says:

      So you want to take the fun away from kids because of overpriced cookies or is it because you have a political agenda that doesn’t match the scouts? I don’t get it. Sounds like a typical “sports” parent ruining things for the kids by making it all about you.

      1. sally says:

        Just a bitter person they are Matt. You can’t please everyone so you got to please yourself.

    Former GS, just do not get it do you. Girls get involved in lots of activities.
    One of them is cookie season selling. Who cares if the price is not just for you.
    Support the scouting program, the future of good citizenship. So go and get
    your Mothers’ & Keeblers cause they are not for you only but the rest of the
    folks who support the scouting programs.

    1. TLor says:

      If you look at who is running the GS organization you will find they are not anything that Julie Lowe would have approved of.. jiji you need to really take a look at what is being pushed.
      The activites can be done at any school or community center there is nothing of lasting value taught anymore . It’s pushing very hard the’ polliticlaly correct agenda’ and I won’t support the PC police..

      1. Scouts are good. says:

        You just sound bitter. Why bring adult politics into a place that is supposed to be about the kids. Wow, what a typical interfering parent you are.

  4. Osama Hangaminichad says:

    What is a Girl Scout? Is that like a Smurf? Do you turn into one if you eat a cookie?

  5. TLor says:

    Not bitter just watching a good organization go downhill

    1. Scouts are good. says:

      Why take it out on the kids?

    Sally, Juliet Lowe founded the Girl Scouts of America. Had you been a girl scout you would have know who she was. Investigate how the money from cookie sales is used, a good % goes to management. If you want to support a troop make a direct donation to that group of girls.
    Very SAD to see this happen.
    Have a great day and may God bless you.
