Grab more milk. Girl Scout cookie time is nearly here.

The first truckload of the popular cookies will arrive in Columbus on Friday, part of 2 million packages being delivered around Indiana.

The cookies will be first be distributed to representatives from various local Girl Scout troops from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside Rural King, 2585 N. National Road, said Deana Potterf, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana spokeswoman.  

The cookies will be delivered to those who already have ordered them, Potterf said.

Cookies will be available at booths at Marsh Supermarkets and other local retailers from Feb. 5 through mid-March, she said. The cost is $4 per package for most varieties, with Toffee-tastic cookies at $5 per package.  

Girl Scouts also will sell cookies for Operation: Cookie Drop, to send cookies to soldiers stationed at military bases across central Indiana, military retirees and for those who can’t afford them.
