IT'S GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME
If you've already placed your order,
you know it's time to pick up your
Girl Scout Cookies.
If not, there are thousands of
Girl Scout troops setting up stands now
(usually outside grocery stores)
to sell boxes of this year's flavors.
The new cookie flavor this year is "lemonade."
The most popular flavors last year
were Thin Mints (my favorite) and Samoas,
tied at 23% of total sales each.
200-million boxes of cookies are estimated
to be sold this year, which coincidentally
is the 100th anniversary of the Girls Scouts.
(There are troops and groups in 92 countries worldwide.)
Proceeds from cookie sales have supported Girl Scout
activities and charities since 1934.
