Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska has announced that it has extended its Girl Scout cookie sales one more week.

You can now support local girl scouts by purchasing your favorite cookies through Sunday, March 12th.

Due to extreme public demand, the Girl Scout Cookie bakery is working overtime to get cookies into the market.

This year, sales have exploded. More than 1.8 million cookies are sold annually in Nebraska. Girl scouts in the metro have already sold 1.7 million boxes this year, and the scouts are only halfway through their selling season.

Nebraska Girl Scouts have already hit 91% of their yearly projection. They say online orders could be delayed a week.

The most popular cookies are Thin Mints, Caramel Delights and their new addition, S'more.
