It has finally started snowing, which means it's time for comfort food. Luckily, the late February snowfall happens to coincide with local Girl Scout cookie season, and when it comes to finding hordes of cookie-hawking, badge-earning Girl Scouts—there's an app for that. There are actually several apps, but the officially sanctioned one from the Girl Scouts themselves is called Cookie Finder, and is free to download for Iphone and Android users in search of sweets.

The app is decked out in Girl Scout forest green, and features not only a "Find Cookies" feature that pinpoints troops with available Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs by date or proximity, but also a "Meet the Cookies" section with nutrition information for each batch and a "Cookie Videos" tab where you can watch your cookie dollars at work educating girls nationwide.

The app isn't perfect—users have reported glitches like random shutdowns, and its accuracy depends on individual troops to update their locations—but any chance at dessert nirvana is worth taking.
