There is an odd phase in life from your early 20s to around early 30s, when it's quite possible you don't know a single Girl Scout. The cheerful girls in green uniforms hawking cookies simply aren't easy to find during this phase (also known as the "I'm not a kid, but I/my friends don't have or want kids yet" phase). So what's a Thin Mint lover to do? Hop on over to Amazon, naturally, PopSugar says.

The online behemoth is now selling boxes of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Do-si-dos and the new-for-2017 cookies: S'mores (fun fact: The term s'mores is believed to have originated with the Girl Scouts).

There are also gluten-free options and a few combo packs. The prices range from about $8 to $11 a box, which is considerably more than the $5 the Scouts charge. Many of the cookies, however, are available on Prime, meaning they could be at your door within 48 hours, which might make those few extra dollars worth it. There's no word on how long Amazon will carry the cookies, so it's best to stock up.

UPDATE: The Girl Scout of the USA caution cookie fans from buying cookies through other sellers, explaining that, "In many instances, these cookies are actually expired. To find out when Girl Scouts will be selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS or Android devices."
