In April, Fox News reported that some Girl Scout troops across the country were having problems with their cookie sales due to the pandemic. In Virginia, however, some members decided to try using drones to bring the popular cookies to customers.

Now, as May draws to a close, a report from the Good News Network says sales have been strong for the drone–cookies delivered. Apparently most of the orders were for Thin Mints, one of the more popular flavors for Girl Scout Cookies.
“It makes a lot more sense to deliver a one-pound box of cookies with a 10-pound drone than it does with a 3,000-pound car,” a Wing spokesperson told the outlet.

Wing, which is owned by parent company Google Alphabet Inc., has been operating in Christiansburg since 2019. The first drone to deliver to the city is on display at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, according to the Associated Press.
The company continued to facilitate deliveries for local businesses throughout the pandemic, including the Mockingbird Café and a library.
