WEST CHESTER TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - The long wait is finally over: Thin Mints are back!

Local Girl Scout volunteers will pick up Girl Scout Cookies by the truckload, ready for delivery to you (!) starting Saturday morning.

Nearly 2.3 million boxes will be distributed to more than 2,100 troops in 32 counties throughout western Ohio and southeastern Indiana, according to a news release from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio.
