It's that time of year again; the Girl Scouts of Central Texas will be out and about selling their hard to resist Girl Scout Cookies.

Saturday, troops gathered at the Farmer's Market to pick-up their first batch and will begin selling on Wednesday.

Samoas, Do-si-dos and the popular Thin Mints arrived in San Angelo Saturday morning, and over 300 Girl Scouts will be selling these little hearts out.

"It never ceases to amaze me how much cookies [the] San Angelo area actually purchases," said Kathy Lisson, Cookie Coordinator.

This is the primary fundraiser for Girl Scouts of Central Texas, and the girls definitely look forward to it.

Sales begin Wednesday, January 15th and will continue for six weeks.

"This helps them buy supplies or books for their learning in Girl Scouts or even do trips and service projects," Lisson said.

Saturday morning, 2,300 cases full of Girl Scout cookies arrived including a variety of cookies from those traditional favorites to a few new flavors. These Girl Scouts are anxious and prepared to sell every single box.

"It helps them in leadership because it gets them out of their box where they can actually come out of their comfort zone and talk to people," Lisson said.

Coordinators say an estimated $30,000 worth of cookies are sold each week.

"Our troop has been able to go to Sea World and Fiesta Texas the last few summers just off cookie sales alone," said Christopher Mora, Cookie Coordinator.

These cookies are already hard to resist, and these dedicated little girls make it difficult for you to walk away empty handed.

"We want them to know that they're gonna go out there and they're actually going to be able to achieve the goals that they want. We're going to help them with that, and actually the community help them with that as well," Mora said.

You will have several opportunities to purchase cookies at Sunset Mall, Wal-mart, and local Walgreen's stores.

Sales begin Wednesday and continue until February 26th.
