$5 Girl Scout cookies? Prices on the rise

(NBC) The price of a box of Girl Scout cookies is going up for some consumers.

After years of holding prices steady, more Girl Scout councils are boosting cookie prices to $5 a box.

With the increase, troops will now receive an average of 90 cents per box of cookies, up from an average of 62 cents per box.

The Girl Scouts organization is divided into 112 local councils, which set their own cookie pricing based on factors that include ingredients, market size and availability and shipping costs.
