They don't take orders anymore. The troop just orders how much they think they can sell.

The person I got mine from said they will start selling in front of stores and markets this weekend. The San Diego County Girl Scout Council has a website where you can search for someone selling near you.

If you can't have cookies you may want to just give to the troop - About $0.84 cents goes to the Girl Scout Troop on each box for their time and effort - A bigger gift is to just write a check directly to the treasurer of your local Girl Scout Troop - A $20.00 donation is like selling $95.00 worth of cookies and keeps it all local...

The Scouting Movement... A most worthy cause...

Especially if you put them in a blender with vanilla ice cream, milk, and a little Creme de Menthe.

At least this lit a fire under Mom.



BTW, Your Girl Scouts have better cookies than our Girl Guides.

Geeze, here we go again. Somehow I got on a mailing list last year, that kept emailing me EVERY day, with a list of current locations in my area. Let's just say I like those cookies, so I didn't really mind it.

The Scouting Movement... A most worthy cause...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_O...Scout_Movement

One purpose of fund raising is to allow the scouts to feel a sense of unity, ownership and accomplishment. Learning to accept a NO, learning skills that will help them later in life. The Cub Scouts in our pack sell popcorn and the proceeds fund our entire year. They pay for food and fees for campouts, they pay for pinewood derby cars, and blue and gold banquet and leader training and all the awards the scouts get. I stress to the boys in teh pack that THEY are the ones who earned the money. It really is a good thing.

The donations, while greatly appreciated and needed by many units, do not teach the young people in the program as much, esp if they do not know about the donation.

Those thin mints, together with "Fudgeeos" from our friends to the north, could bring about world peace.

Love Samoas. Aldis sells a spot-on version. Yes, they're less than half the GS price. Yeah I know, support your local GS yada yada. But they occasionally end up in my cart.

You should be required to get a prescription before you can purchase these things. They seem to have addictive qualities, maybe more than other U.S. Schedule III drugs do.

Are you missing a letter? Hopefully an "s", not so much an "n"?

The lemon cookies are awesome and I'm almost out. There's almost sure to be a squad of girl scouts at the stores if we get any warm weather.
