Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa has so far avoided most of the supply delays reported by troops in other states this cookie season, spokesperson Samie Swinton told Axios.

What's happening: Two main bakeries produce the goods, Swinton said. Little Brownie Bakers has been more prone to shortages linked with the pandemic and hit by extreme weather in places like Colorado.

  • ABC Bakers supplies most of Iowa's stash. Only a few slight delays have been reported, mostly linked with trucking, Swinton said.

Thought bubble: Phew, we're in need of a viable alternative to those long Crumbl Cookie lines.

Buy a box: $5 each, available now through March 27.

  • Order through a Girl Scout or visit the cookie finder to locate booth locations and times via your ZIP code.
