Girls Scout Cookies

Believe it or not, Girl Scout cookies can actually be found in the dictionary.

This is what the dictionary calls it: A Girl Scout cookie is one of several varieties of cookie. They were sold on neighborhood tours by Girl Scouts of the USA as a fundraiser for their organization. Cookies have become a worldwide frenzy.

The history of how they came to be is very interesting. In 1922 the American Girl magazine suggested cookie sales as a fundraiser and provided recipes. It was 1933 in Philadelphia when the first official sale took place. In 1936 they licensed the recipes out so that companies could mass-produce them.

The girls scouts would usually sell to their relatives and friends. Then they would walk around town to visit people’s houses and take their orders by paper, just like they do today. As an incentive to sell more cookies, the councils would offer different prizes. The prizes would differ from council to council, but popular prizes were stuffed animals, coupons and uniforms.

Today the prizes have grown to scholarships, family trips, and other large prizes. For every box sold, the Girl Scout council receives around 40-60 cents. This adds up to millions for the council, and this allows for the council to put the money back into the girl scouts.

There are many critics of the cookies. They believe that they are too fatty, and help spread the obese epidemic that has taken over this country. A way that the council helped to dismiss these remarks was to create sugar-free and fat-free cookies. Not only are these cookies better for us, but they also taste just as good.

There are fourteen different types of cookies today:

1. Thin Mints 2. Do-si-dos 3. Trefoils 4. Tagalongs 5. Samoas 6. Golden Yangles 7. Lemon Coolers 8. Lemon Pastry Cremes 9. Thanks-a-lots 10. Allabouts 11. Cartwheels 12. Caf? cookies 13. Classic Cremes 14. Double Dutch

Out of these fourteen cookies, four of them are either reduced-fat, fat-free, or sugar-free. Whether you are a lover or critic, there is no denying the popularity of these cookies. With each bite you take, you are sent back into a different time where life was easy and slow.
