Once a year for nearly 100 years now, Girl Scouts across the country have been selling their famous and absolutely delicious cookies: Samoas, Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Shortbreads, the list goes on.

Since 1917 however, you've had to know a Girl Scout in your neighborhood, or head to the local store and hope a troop is selling cookies outside.

Those days are long gone. The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here: Now you can buy delicious Girl Scout cookies from the official Girl Scout Cookies app for Apple and Android gadgets, and they proudly showed off the app at this week's CES in Las Vegas.

Order can be placed online, too, but those will require an email invitation from a scout (using only first names) so they can build client lists while staying safe from predators.
