Whether you're a Thin Mints or a Peanut Butter Patties fan, when you see a table in front of grocery store stacked with Girl Scout cookies, you likely can't help but stop.

With 12 kinds of cookies, there's a flavor for everyone. And Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox," a group of Girl Scout Juniors and Brownies pulled in a red wagon filled with boxes of cookies to promote their two-month sales drive.

Pamela Mann, director of fund development for the Girls Scouts, said you can find the girls "boothing" at local grocery stores or locate them through a cookie finder mobile app.

"We only do this one time a year and the money raised helps them go on camping trips in the summer, among other things," Mann said.

Simulcast host Scott Cox asked each girl her name -- and approved of all their names. He also deemed them all successful, saying their sales pitches are effective.

You can find information on the cookie finder mobile app at www.girlscouts.org.
