      Unfortunately, I don't know any little girls selling this year. I'll have to seek some out. This year there's the added incentive of GSA supporting the rights of transgender girls to participate in their organization.

      I reject the serving size "suggestion" of two peanut butter patties and substitute my own: 6 boxes.

      :P

      I less than 3 girl scout cookies. My cousin's daughter is in girl scouts, so I'll have to get a hold of her!

      These cookies are actually international also Goldfishbythesea. I used to sell them here in Australia, when I was a litlle girl many moons ago:-) Except, at that time, they were very plain. This brings back memories!

      i never knew until I became a Girl Scout Leader that the cookies are different nation wide. We don't offer Dosie Does in Florida! And caramel delights are over with as well! And were are told not to sell them on Ebay..but I have to say the cookie booths do very good! Girls work 2 hours and a kmart or walmart under adult supervision and they usually sell far more than going door to door and it's much safer! No dilveries either!

      It's turned into such a cut throat biz inside some councils I've almost quit Girl Scouts over it. But I stay for the girls. And the comedy of the other leaders who fight over who get a cookie booth at the wal mart. ha ha

      Girl Scout Cookies....My, My, My.....Thin Mints do Rock. I love the Tagalongs!

      In my town the Girl Scouts and Moms are outside K-mart selling them. Not much door to door here like back in the day!

      Have a Dynamic Day!

      AuraGem:

      Yes, girl scout cookies are very popular here. You can only get these particular cookies from girl scouts who sell them door-to-door, or, now, on Ebay. The thin mints are particularly popular!!!

      This hub has been very informative for me. I had no idea what the term meant, other than guessing a literal, obvious meaning. It must be a big thing in the U.S.?

      I prefer the Caramel deLites... But, none of the cookies look too good nutritionally speaking...

      I'm not a cookie person, but the rest of my family LOVES Girl Scout Cookies. Their favorite has always been the shortbread cookies.
