Girl Scout Cookies

As you know K decided to become a Girl Scout and is now a Daisy and I am the leader (still not sure how that happened!) On January 8 the Girl Scout Cookies go on sale. They are $3.50 per packet (approx £2.33) If you would like to help K in her quest to sell cookies and reach her target you can buy some cookies. If you are in the UK and would like some I could bring them over to the UK in March when we come for my brothers wedding. 

The flavors are: 

Samoas - Tender vanilla cookies covered with caramel, rolled in toasted coconut, and striped with a rich chocolatey coating. (approx 15 per package)

Trefoils - Delicate-tasting shortbread. (approx 36 per package) 

Thin Mints (a bit like Viscounts) - Thin wafer covered with smooth chocolatey coating. made with natural peppermint. (approx 28 per package)

Tagalongs - Tasty cookies topped with creamy peanut butter and covered with a luscious chocolatey coating. (approx 15 per package)

Do-Si-Dos - Crisp and crunchy oatmeal cookies with peanut butter filling. (approx 20 per package)

Thank You Berry Much - Real premium cranberries provide a delightful tartness in these hearty cookies sweetened with creamy, white fudge chips. Crispy rice delivers a satisfying crunch. (approx 14 per package)

Dulce De Leche - Sweet bite sized cookies are rich with milk caramel chips. (approx 22 per package)

Here is a link to the webpage with pictures of the cookies. http://www.girlscoutsindiana.org/imagesCDS/CookieFlyer7variety.pdf 

 A percentage of the sale of cookies that K and the other 3 Daisy Girl Scouts in our Troop will come back to our Troop so we can do something fun. There are also incentives for the girls to sell loads of cookies. http://www.girlscoutsindiana.org/imagesCDS/Incentives_2011.pdf

I would need to have the money BEFORE I leave for the UK as we need to deposit it in the Girl Scout bank account before we fly to the UK so I would need it by March 16 AT THE LATEST.

If you know someone else who you think would like to buy some cookies, and they do not read this blog please let them know. 

Huge thanks from me and K!

  1. oh my, I love GS cookies. They are an easy sell if the weather isn't too bad. I hate selling them at this time of year though, only a few houses in our road and trudging about in 5 Fahrenheit weather is no fun for anyone.

    If you know many people who work in offices or factories, photocopy the order form and have them pin it to their bulletin boards!


14 year olds & Green Cards

Did you know that you need to get a new green card when you turn 14? Do you know the reason why? No really, I'd like to know why. ...
