Girl Scout cookies

It's GS cookie time again. This morning I went to the grocery store (starved) and at the exit door were three sweet faced little girls selling cookies. All I had on my mind was Caramel Delights and a cup of coffee. The cookies are up to $3.50 a box. I bought two boxes. When I sold them (back when I was crossing the prarie) they were .47 per box.

Hahaha reprot! I can see you now with your little bonnet on in your horse drawn carriage. "can I trade you these fine cookies for your ox sir??"

anyways....Sean supposidly ordered some from a coworker ...if not I may need to trade him in for an ox.

I love those cookies....my fav's are caramel delights (or samoas depending on what part of the U.S. you are in). Thin mints and treefoils (shortbread cookies). The price has not gone up as much as I would have thought by now. about 15 years ago I was selling for $2.50 I think.

LMAO!! That is a hoot, Kris.

I am a former Scout leader. Where I live, the cookies sell for $4.00/box. They were $3.00 just a few years ago, and ours were the cheapest around. The prices are set locally so it varies quite a bit.

I love the Tagalongs, too!! I think I'll try freezing mine, too...great idea.

I think when I was a girl scout they were $2.50 a box and once I sold the most for the area (had to be in the thousands) and my troop got to go on a special trip for it. I sometimes buy them if I run into a girl scout. My favs are the somoas (the ones that are chocolate and coconut). My hubby loves thin mints!

I like the peanut butter cookies. A co-worker gave me one their new cookies, it was like an oatmeal raisin that I bet my husband would like.
I was a girl scout only one year. I was so shy that I stood outside of Walmart when we were selling cookies and I didn't want to go up and ask anyone if they wanted to buy cookies. I remember my mom trying to persuade me to do it.

Ah Sheng, tomorrow morning I will bow my head in a moment of silence and think of you as I eat ANOTHER BOX of GS cookies. I am such an oinker.

Well, most of the times I see girl scout cookies I see the mothers selling them

I could easily afford those for myself (especially since I only eat one or two cookies at a time) but if I buy them my fiance and his brother WILL eat dozens of boxes at one setting. How they stay so skinny is beyond my comprehension.
