it's that time again! I haven't purchased any for the last couple years, so I feel like I should support the Girl Scouts of America this year. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I love thin mints - in the freezer. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
And Samoa's.<br>
Someone told me the Lemonades are real good too.<br><br><img alt="walk.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/walk.gif">

No one knocks on my door either. Not even the jehovah witnesses . . .<br><br>
I think fewer and fewer GS's are actually going door to door anymore. I did when I was a girlscout, but I think it's becoming too much of a safety issue anymore. So, usually I see them outside stores like walmart or grocery stores.

I got my usual four boxes last week. 2 each of Tagalongs (chocolate covered peanut butter) and All Abouts (shortbread cookie with chocolate on one side). They reside in my desk at work since that's where I buy them, and they'll be there through April since I always forget I have them. <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">

They were in the supermarket walkway last Sunday. I told them that I would love to buy some but my Butt said I can't. They LOL at that and said I could donate to send cookies to the troops so I did that instead.<br><br>
I actually have half a sleeve of thin mints in my freezer. Not sure what year they are from.

DD was a scout for 10+ years. The GSA discourages door to door selling and prefer the cookies be sold via telephone (to family and friends) and at tables set up at stores.<br><br>
Never could get them to set up outside a liquor store. I still say they would have sold a ton!

In Canada there are two versions. The traditional chocolate and vanilla are sold in the spring (big controversy a couple of years ago when they changed companies and the old company wouldn't give up the recipe claiming intellectual property) There is a sale of mint chocolate in the fall. The traditional ones are far more popular. When my daughter used to go door to door, she would get sales at 80% plus of the houses that opened their door. More addictive than crack cocaine. (am suggesting they use that as their slogan). Wish I could invent a product will the same appeal. At $4 a box they are not cheap, but they are very good.

Thin Mints in the freezer? Why put an empty box there?

Hmmm, I see an entrepreneur opportunity here. Next year I'll buy a case of Thin Mints and sell them at exorbitant prices to all the Kicksters. There's no danger in me eating them since they're not my favorites.<br><br>
I'll be rich! Rich I tell you!!

We used to track the ages of the kids in the neighborhood (at least the girls) by who came around selling cookies each year. This year I think that they've all aged out of it because nobody showed up. But at least I ended up buying a couple of boxes from the group in the foyer at Kroger's last week. Thin mints and the traditional shortbread cookies are my favorites.

Gordon, I would definitely buy from your girls but I think the cost of mailing them to me would end up costing me more than I want to spend. darn! I'd much rather support a GS that I sort of know, through their dad, on a running forum, about 500 miles away . . . .<br><br>
Lab in a short skirt selling cookies eh?
