The food truck trend hasn’t been showing any signs of slowing down and people still love to be able to hunt down a delicious, inexpensive meal from a mobile restaurant during the day. In honor of National Girl Scout Cookie Day, Girl Scouts are joining in by launching their own Girl Scout Cookie Truck in New York City. The truck will only be out and about today, and it will be making four stops (although it will probably pull over if you flag it down): 42nd Street and Madison Avenue from 8:30 and 10:30 am; 57th between Fifth and Sixth Avenues from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm; Park Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets from 2:30 – 4:30 pm; and on Amsterdam Avenue between 71st and 72nd streets from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The truck will be staffed with scouts selling cookies, of course. Unlike most cookie sales, however, the truck will also be giving out samples of some of these much-loved cookies, so you can grab one of your favorites without buying a whole box or try something new that you wouldn’t otherwise buy.
Unfortunately, New York is the only city that will be seeing a real Girl Scout Cookie truck this season, and unless some dedicated scout moms want to go out and get decals for their own cars to build their own version for local deliveries, the rest of us will just have to wait and see if it is a success and if they decide to venture a little further in their truck next season.
