It's Girl Scout Cookie Time!

This Saturday is a big day in the country. Thousands of troops will start selling Girl Scout Cookies!

My daughter Rachel is in a troop here in Texas. Their troop has sold so many cookies that they have made "Super Troop" for the last 4 years. The top seller in our area has always been Thin Mints. My personal favorites are the Caramel Delites and the Peanut Butter sandwhich cookies. Yum Yum!

It's been 90 years since Girl Scouts began selling home-baked cookies to raise money. The idea was so popular that in 1936, Girl Scouts of the USA enlisted bakers to handle the growing demand. Since then, selling Girl Scout Cookies has become a successful way to help girls develop important leadership skills and earn money for activities.
I have a cute Girl Scout Keepsake tin in my shop for those looking for a great gift idea for the Girl Scout in your life. It's great to display in your child's bedroom, great for giving to a hard working troop leader, or to carry around while selling cookies in your community.
I will keep you all posted on how sales go this year! I know that I will have to spend extra time in the gym for the next month with all the cookie boxes that will be lying around my house. If you see a Girl Scout troop selling these yummy cookies go and support them and buy a box. They even have reduced fat cookies now! Enjoy!
