Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania CEO Kim Fraites-Dow tells CBS3 the cookies were first introduced as a bake sale that was started by a mother and daughter and is now the largest girl-led business in the world.

“I’m beaming with pride this morning with all these wonderful girls here who do such an amazing job,” Fraites said.

Sadly, the Girl Scouts are retiring the Thanks-A-Lot cookie after this season, so make sure you stock up.

But Fraites-Dow says there is a new Lemon Up cookie this year and you can also try the gluten free option — Caramel Chocolate Chip.
