Some Girl Scout troops raising cookie prices

Posted:

(CNN) -- Just how much would you pay for those thin mints and tagalongs? Hopefully $5 a box!

Some girl scout troops in the U.S. are planning to hike the price per box to $5.

Troops in eastern Massachusetts plan to raise the price when sales begin on Dec. 11.

Two California Girl Scout Councils are also planning to raise their price per box.

Last year the price was $4 a box.  

The Girl Scout Councils cited higher cost of ingredients, transportation and storage as the primary drivers of the price hike.

The Girl Scouts of America are made up of 112 local councils, each of which sets its own price for a box of cookies.
