HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Girl Scouts cookie season has arrived in Connecticut.

The Girl Scouts of Connecticut began taking orders on Jan. 2.

The organization called itself the largest girl-led business in the world.

The business said a lot goes into selling the goodies.

“It's the confidence a girl gains from asking people to support her, or how she gains life skills through learning how to manage people and money,” the Girl Scouts said in a news release. “By purchasing a box of cookies, supporters are helping girls learn Five Skills: goal setting, money management, business ethics, people skills, and decision making.”

Patrons can now buy the cookies online for the first time ever.

“Digital Cookie strengthens, expands, and enhances the Girl Scout Cookie Program by combining the values and lessons of door-to-door and booth sales with crucial 21st century business and entrepreneurial skills, continuing Girl Scouts' long tradition of preparing today's girls to be the female leaders of tomorrow,” the release continued.

The cookies available this year include Thin Mints, Trefoils, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Rah-Rah Raisins, Savannah Smiles and Toffee-Tastic.
