It's almost time. On February 2nd, Roo will start selling Girl Scout Cookies for her Brownie troop. This year, our Council is trying something new– we'll have the merchandise on hand when we go door-to-door, so there will be immediate gratification for customers and I won't have to keep doubling back to deliver. Yay!
Thin Mints are the universal favorite but everyone seems to have their own top picks. Interestingly, some of the cookies have different names depending on which region you live in. For instance, I grew up with Samoas but here in Kansas they are called Caramel deLites. Same thing with the Peanut Butter Sandwiches, which I knew as Dos-i-dos. This year's special limited edition cookie is Mango Cremes and feature something called Nutrifusion that is supposed to be healthy, if that sort of thing floats your boat. I wouldn't advise eating the entire box in one sitting to harness that nutritional oomph but, hey, if you're buying, you can do whatever you want with 'em…
If you're cookie-phobic (blasphemy!), you can even choose the Cookie Share option, which sends your cookies to our troops. You can imagine how well that goes over!
Anyway, start thinking about what you'd like to order and Roo will be happy to sell you some cookies in just a few short week.
