Girl Scout Cookies

It’s that time of the year again… Girl Scout cookie season! Girl Scouts all around America are starting to sell delicious cookies that everyone wants.  By selling cookies, girls are able to learn how to make decisions, learn how to talk with others, and learn how to set goals. This year, girls are selling the staple Girl Scout cookies: Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs, and the more recent additions Rah-Rah-Raisins, and Savannah Smiles. In the early years of Girl Scouts, cookies were made by the girls in their own kitchens. The purpose of selling cookies was to allow for troops to have money to use for activities such as camping. Today, the money earned is still used to activities such as camping or even traveling to Europe. In the 1930’s, the love for Girl Scout cookies started to grow. Girl Scouts are not only known for their leadership in the community, but also for the delicious and flavorful treats. I’ve been in Girl Scouts since kindergarten, so this is my 12th year selling cookies. In my twelve years of selling, I have noticed the two most popular cookies are the Samoas and Thin Mints, which also happen to be my two favorites. Every year I ask family, friends, teachers, and neighbors to support my troop and buy a box of cookies. So don’t be surprised if you have girls knocking on your door, asking, “would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?”
