Anyone buy girlscout cookies?

I just received mine yesterday (samoas, thin mints, and tagalongs). Normally when I buy food I check labels for sodium, fat, cholestoral, etc. Wow, I just looked at the samoas box label and man they are not terribly healthy are they? Must be why they taste so good Thankfully I dont eat alot of sweets! Oh and have you noticed the price keeps going up and the cookies get smaller? These samoas are alot smaller than they used to be. Anyway, it's for a good cause I suppose, so I am not discouraging anyone from buying them.

I will sometime soon. Just waiting for my friend to call and ask if I want to buy any from her girls.

Thin mints for sure.

We don't have any that come around here. I have to wait until they sell their extras at the grocery store. I love the Tagalongs. DH loves the Thin Mints.

only if they're made from genuine girl scouts!

(line stolen from the adams family movie)

they named a cookie after the national language of the phillipines?

Not anymore. I used to buy them and sell them as a young girl scout myself. But these days, they're too expensive and to me, the quality isn't there. DH is a soft touch for those ladies tho.

I buy them from the little girl that lives behind me but, I always give them to my father who shares them with his senior friends- there are always way too many cookies around here and my husband claims I like keeping him fat that's why I bake. Couldn't be he has to eat a dozen in one sitting could it??

I think it's too late to order, they usually accept orders in January and deliver in March, but I could be wrong about that. And yes, they are getting very expensive ($3.00 per box now). I think the quality is still good, but the size had definately decreased.

I payed $4 yesterday, amber. Like the thin mints and buy to support. I wanted to be a girl scout when I was little but never was. Probably, my parents knew I'd end up eating all the cookies and they'd have to pay for them all. ;)

On my last trip, one of the ladys told me that her daughter had to go start collecting the $ and delivering the goods. She also told me that now, the parents have to sign a contract to ensure the cookies will get paid for after being ordered, if not by the person who ordered, by the parents.

My fond memory of selling them was in Chatsworth California. We sold them at church and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans daughters were in my girl scout troop.
