Girl Scout Cookie Mobiles?

San Diego Girl Scouts are selling cookies on the spot this year- no order form, no wait. They are selling them via cookie mobiles (basically wagons), and started doing so 2/1. Question is: where? Anyone seen a wagon full of cookies roll by? My car keys and cash are in hand...some lucky kid is going to win the trip to Disney World, because I am looking to buy a lot...please advise if you know where these are being sold in the SD area. Thanks!

    There was a group of Scouts at the La Jolla farmers market this past Sunday. Also, we were stopped by a girl hauling a wagon-load of cookies on the sidewalk in our neighborhood. Shouldn't be too hard to find someone selling cookies. BTW, did you know that the boxes are cheaper in Texas ($3.50 per). What's up with that?

      The price went up out here after the fires in 2003 destroyed the campgrounds. You aren't just paying for cookies, you are supporting the local Troops.

        Thanks- i will check back in to see where you will be - tried calling the San Diego Scouts (prior to my post) but they can't really say- their advice was to "just drive around San Diego" but I needed to narrow that down a bit!

          Girl Scout troops usually sell them outside grocery stores, especially the Vons locations, throughout San Diego in the afternoons/evenings. Our daughter's GS troop is now selling them door to door (just started last weekend), but will begin selling them at Von's in two weeks. Don't know what the schedule is for other troops, but it might be the same.

            You can order them from us, if you'd like them, immediately. Email troop3318@cox.net and my daughter, Jade, and her troop will bring them out to you.

        The kids sometimes are out in front of Walmart. Maybe check there.

          Someone had a little stand set up at the Hillcrest farmer's market yesterday - I'm not sure whether they'll be there again next week.

            Thank you- appreciate it! I am going to give the Farmer's Market and Walmart a shot!
