Or maybe you're interested in becoming a Girl Scout.

The Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta appeared on CBS Atlanta's morning show Friday to talk about their annual cookie sale and the 'Dollars and Sense Cookie Rally and Expo' at the Cobb Galleria this weekend.

Madeline Pond, pictured far left, appeared with fellow Girl Scouts on the CBS Atlanta morning show. Her mother, Elizabeth Pond, is the troop's Girl Scout leader.

"1100 girls have registered for the expo and 600 adults are attending," said Beth Messer, Community Service Opportunities leader of The Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta.

Participating in the Dollar and Sense Rally and Expo allows girls to master five essential skills:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics

Interested in becoming a Girl Scout? The public is welcome to attend the Cobb Galleria expo Sunday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. to learn more about the Girl Scouts.

Sunday, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta will host “Cookie University,” with workshops to show marketing strategies and sessions on how to “maximize your cookie business,” and entrepreneurial skills. The day’s event is to teach young girls how to be financially literate, savvy shoppers, careful consumers and understand the humble roots of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

The Sunday event is open to the public. The ticket price is $12 at the door.  In addition, there will be a special performance from pop singer Manika.

Cookie sales start Jan. 17. This year Savannah Smiles, a delicious tart lemon cookie, has been added to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts.
