It is girl scout cookie time!

1y ago

Thin mints, do-si-dos and samoas.. oh my! How are you going to hold on to your New Year's resolutions? I mean it's girl scout cookies, come on! Not only do they taste good, they are over priced and help these girls achieve what they want. Are you going to be able to only do one box? Or is it one of each? It is for a good cause after all and a very tasty one at that! All proceeds stay local from where you bought them. So that is nice at least you know you are helping your community. You are running out of time to actually order cookies from your favorite girl scout. Don't worry though, cause soon enough they will have their booths set up outside most grocery stores in your area. They will taunt you with their tasty cookies. If somehow you miss out on that and still want to order some I believe you can order it from their website and have them shipped to you.

Make sure to check out their website for where to buy cookies near you. Also check out the history on girl scout cookies.

  • I was a Girl Scouts leader for 25 years. I prefer to donate directly to the troop. They get less than a dollar for each box. Everything else goes to admin. Sucks for all the girls to work so hard with little benefit.

    • No doubt. One of the women I work with sells them for her daughter and they decided not to do prizes for one of their sales just so they receive more money. Candy & nut sale maybe.

    • But they still have to go do it.

  • They go back to the corporate store and you can buy them half price

    • For whatever reason the troop I support cannot send them back. So I will support them both ways and thank you for letting me know I can donate.

  • They still make very little profit. Even when they give up incentives. We tried for a long time to argue the point that we should get more for each box. But that will never happen. Imagine trying to sell Girl Scout cookies in northern Maine when it’s negative 20 and 5 feet of snow on the ground door to door. We did it for 10 years. Not worth.75 cents a box. Donate directly to Girl Scouts troop they keep the whole amount.

    • So what happens to the unsold cookies that the troops buy to sell?

    • I'll do both then that way it supports the girls that are trying to sell and give straight to the troops.
